AP - Sports

BROOKINGS, S.D. (AP) -- Kareem Jamar scored 23 points and had a game-high 12 rebounds Thursday night and Montana beat South Dakota State 77-69.

Montana (3-0) snapped South Dakota State's 30-game home winning streak.

Jamar scored 14 of his points, including three 3-pointers, in the second half. Montana took a 33-32 lead with 16:27 to play and did not trail the rest of the game. Three other players scored in double-figures for the Grizzlies, the first time someone other than Jamar has done so this season.

South Dakota State (0-3) led by as much as nine points in the first half, and had 25-24 halftime lead. But the Jackrabbits shot just 29 percent from the floor in the second half. Jordan Dykstra led with 20 points while Cody Larson grabbed 11 boards.

With the win, the Grizzlies avenged last season's 68-67 double-overtime loss to the Jackrabbits in Missoula last season.
