SHERIDAN, Wyo. -- Perimeter shooting kept Wyoming in the game, but the Montana All Stars, Oliver Carr in particular, were too strong.

Bozeman’s Carr scored 23 points, including 15 in the second half, to help lift Montana to a 105-103 victory Friday in the Montana-Wyoming All-Star Basketball Series at the Golden Dome at Sheridan College.

The win upped Montana’s all-time series lead to 50-27, and was its fifth straight win.

“Carr did a great job,” said Montana coach Steve Keller. “He was active, he ran the floor and got some layups, and when we posted him up he scored. It was a great effort. He’s a gamer.”

Carr, who is headed to play at Carroll College, scored a basket underneath with two minutes remaining to break a 95-95 tie and put the Montanans ahead for good. On Wyoming’s ensuing possession, Carr blocked a shot by Sheridan’s Reed Ritterbusch, and Billings Senior’s Kooper Kidgell made two free throws to pad the lead.

Wyoming, which made 14 3-pionters, was within three and had the ball with eight seconds remaining after Gillette’s Cody Kelley stripped it from Kidgell. But Montana didn’t allow Wyoming a look at a tying 3, instead opting to foul Gillette’s Cody Kelley before he could get a shot off.

Kelley made two free throws to pull Wyoming within one, but Dillon’s Troy Scott made 1 of 2 on Montana’s ensuing possession with 3.9 seconds left to cap the scoring.

Montana made 31 of 42 free throws, including 22 for 30 in the second half.

Wyoming took a six-point lead earlier in the fourth after Kelley and Douglas’ Greg Vandeventeer scored five straight points. Montana fought back and eventually took a one-point lead on a three-point play by Carr.

Kelly hit a 3 and made a layup to give Wyoming a six-point advantage, but Kidgell made back-to-back shots and Carr followed with a basket underneath, and Montana never surrendered the lead.

Kelley, Wyoming’s two-time Gatorade player of the year, had 22 points. Reed Ritterbusch of Sheridan added 18. Stevensville’s Jared Schultz had 15 for Montana, while Kidgell added 14 and Scott had 13.

It was the first time since 2005 that both teams eclipsed the 100-point plateau.

"I thought we did about as good a job as we could," said Wyoming coach Steve Smiley. "We missed a ton of free throws in the fourth quarter. We know we’ve got to make shots, and we did that. We’ve got to double the post and I thought our guys did a good job of not letting them take it to us.”
