Good evening after a wind-blown drive home.

The Zags encountered their share of turbulence, some of it self generated, but landed a hard-fought victory over visiting Montana 61-58 Tuesday. Kyle Wiltjer and Domantas Sabonis each had 16 points. The key shot was a Josh Perkins' jumper with 38 seconds left after Sabonis had tipped a rebound out to a GU teammate.

Here's my game story and Tyler Tjomsland's photo gallery. Back in the a.m. with a day-after post.
