BILLINGS (AP) - Former KG star Jake Stuart scored 21 points and grabbed a game-high 11 rebounds Tuesday as Rocky Mountain claimed its second win of the Hampton Inn Classic with a 105-72 defeat of Johnson and Wales.
Ken Waldo added 18, and three other Bears made it into double digits as Rocky hit 54 percent from the field and outrebounded the Wildcats 53-24.
Johnson and Wales ended the first half trailing 51-23, then more than doubled their points in the second, but it wasn't enough to keep up with the Bears. Troy Welshaar led the Wildcats and the game with 23 points.
Rocky Mountain opened the tournament Monday with a 101-60 victory over the University of Regina.
