Biglow's free throws give Montana State 61-59 victory in OT vs. Idaho State

Antonio Biglow hit two free throws with 17 seconds left in overtime, giving Montana State a 61-59 victory over Idaho State on Saturday night.

Flavien Davis led the Bobcats (9-9, 6-4 Big Sky) with 24 points. Christian Moon added 12 points, and Xavier Blount had eight assists.

Chris Hansen led Idaho State (4-15, 3-7) with 20 points and nine rebounds. Tomas Sanchez and Melvin Morgan added 11 points apiece.

The Bengals did not make a field goal in overtime, getting only a pair of free throws from Morgan with 4:03 left to take a 59-57 lead. Paul Egwuonwu's dunk with 3:48 remaining tied it up, and the teams traded missed baskets until Biglow was fouled and scored the game-winning free throws — his only points of the game.

Montana State led by 17 points in the second half, but Idaho State went on a 22-6 run and later tied it on Andre Hatchett's layup with 33 seconds left.
