GRAND FORKS, North Dakota — Marcus Colbert scored 18 points, including a last-second game-winner, to lead Montana State to an 80-78 win over North Dakota on Saturday.

Tied at 78 in the final seconds of the game, Colbert's driving layup was blocked by Quinton Hooker back into his own hands and he hit a turnaround jumper on the baseline as time expired.

Eric Norman had 22 points and 12 rebounds, including four 3-pointers and Michael Dison scored 18 for the Bobcats (6-19, 3-10 Big Sky).

Montana State led by nine with 1:55 left but North Dakota scored 11 of the last 14 points before Colbert's winner, Jaron Nash accounting for six of the 11.

Terrel de Rouen finished with 20 points, Nash added 19 including going 8 of 12 at the free throw line and Estan Tyler pitched in 17 and five rebounds for North Dakota (8-16, 4-9).
