The Montana women's basketball team beat BYU 78-69 Friday night, but it wasn't an easy victory for the defending Big Sky Champions.

The young Cougars jumped off to a 10-2 lead, and maintained a lead through the most of the first half. Montana came back to tie the score several times before the intermission and the game was knotted at intermission.The game remained a see-saw battle until the Lady Griz, trailing 51-49, used their superior height to outrebound the Cougars and go on a 11-0 run to take control of the game at 60-51 with 7:32 left.
