MISSOULA, Montana — Martin Breunig scored 22 points on 10-for-14 shooting and grabbed eight rebounds to lead Montana to an 88-77 win over Idaho State on Thursday night.

Idaho State (6-20, 3-11) cut the gap to 56-51 midway through the second with Nnamdi Ezenwa's layup but Montana scored 10 of the next 12 to push the margin back into double figures.
