OREM, Utah (AP)—Ben Aird’s double-double helped Utah Valley extend its school-record winning streak to 11 games with a 70-60 victory over Montana Tech on Monday night.

Aird, the Great West Conference player of the week, scored a career-high 25 points and had 10 rebounds for the Wolverines (18-10). Holton Hunsaker sank five 3-pointers and scored 17 points. Keith Thompson and Isiah Williams added 13 apiece.

Daniel Simon’s 13 points paced the Orediggers, an NAIA team that played the game as an exhibition.

Montana Tech trailed only 57-50 after Brian Cummings made two free throws with 10:01 left.

But the Wolverines sealed the victory with an 11-0 spurt keyed by six points from Thompson for a 68-50 edge with 4:10 remaining.

Utah Valley committed only four turnovers while forcing 11 but was outrebounded 37-30 in its final nonconference game of the season.
