Idaho Comes Up Just Short Against Montana St.

MOSCOW, Idaho—Montana State earned its sixth consecutive win over the Vandals on Saturday, 62-59. Idaho freshman Taylor Pierce got a good look from 25-feet out in the game’s final second, but her game-tying shot clanked off the back of the rim.

Montana State (14-5, 7-1 BSC) turned 11 third quarter turnovers into 12 points for the Bobcats, helping erase Idaho’s nine-point third quarter lead. The Bobcats outscored Idaho, 16-4, in a span of 7:22 to enter the fourth quarter with a three-point lead.  

“We had our opportunities down the stretch,” head coach Jon Newlee noted. “We gave it away at the start of the game and in that third quarter. We did not come out defensively with the intensity level that that I expected. Then 11 turnovers in the third quarter were killer.”

Idaho (13-6, 5-2 BSC) got down early, 12-4, in the game’s first 3:12.  The Vandals showed their heart, battling back with consecutive 3-pointers from Karlee Wilson and Christina Salvatore. A Renae Mokrzycki layup tied the game at 16 with just over a minute to play in the quarter.
