Rorie, Krslovic lead Montana past North Dakota 84-76

RENO, Nev. (AP) Ahmaad Rorie scored 30 points, 22 in the second half, and Fabijan Krslovic had two critical baskets late on his way to a double-double to lead top-seeded Montana to an 84-76 win over eighth-seeded North Dakota on Thursday in the Big Sky Conference quarterfinals.

Krslovic had the first of back-to-back jumpers with three minutes left to start an 8-0 run. That gave the Grizzlies (24-7), who have won eight straight over UND, an 82-72 lead when Rorie made two free throws with a minute left. That was the only double-figure lead in a game that had seven ties and 12 lead changes.

Michael Oguine had 23 points, and Sayeed Pridgett joined Krslovic's double-double of 12 points and 13 rebounds with 14 points and 11 rebounds for Montana, which fifth-seeded Northern Colorado in Friday's first semifinal.
