Oredigger men stop New Hope

LEWISTON, Idaho — The Montana Tech’ men’s basketball team wasn’t at its best Saturday night at the Clearwater River Casino Invite.

The Orediggers, though, were good enough to win.

Adam Greger poured in 25 points and the Orediggers beat New Hope 86-79.

“We were very fortunate to come out with a win tonight,” Tech coach Patrick O’Herron said. “We didn’t compete and defend the way we need to and we got out hustled. We have a chance tomorrow to get better when we play Walla Walla.”

The Orediggers close out the tournament against Walla Wall University at 5 p.m. Mountain Time on Saturday.

Three Orediggers scored in double figures in the win. Bryan Bock tossed in 19 while Travis Peevey contributed with 16 off the bench. Roman Pruneda-Garza scored nine points.

Nicholas Dillingham scored 22 and T.J. Little netted 21 to lead New Hope.
