CEDAR CITY, Utah – Kareem Jamar scored 26 points and Montana maintained first place in Big Sky Conference men’s basketball by defeating Southern Utah 86-74 in overtime Monday night.

Spencer Coleman added 16 points, Jordan Gregory scored 14 – including a tying 3-pointer with 17 seconds left in regulation – and Keron DeShields had 13 points for the Grizzlies (21-6, 17-1 Big Sky), who lead the conference by one game over Weber State with two home games remaining. The regular-season conference champion will host the conference tournament beginning March 14 and concluding March 16.

Neither team led by more than seven in regulation but the Grizzlies broke it open in overtime, when they made all three field-goal attempts and 13 of 14 free throws.

Jackson Stevenett had 16 points and A.J. Hess scored 15 for the Thunderbirds.

Montana again played without point guard Will Cherry, who injured his foot on Feb. 23 against Davidson.
