Hawkinson's double-double leads Cougars past Montana

ST. THOMAS, U.S. Virgin Islands (AP) - Josh Hawkinson scored a career-high 29 points and added 14 rebounds, as Washington State downed Montana 87-63 Saturday in a consolation-round game at the Paradise Jam tournament.

Conor Clifford added 12 points, Malachi Flynn had 11 and Charles Callison 10 for the Cougars (3-1), who went up 41-20 by the halftime break and led by as many as 28 points in the second half.

Jared Samuelson had 14 points and Ahmaad Rorie 10 for the Grizzlies (0-4), who shot just 34.8 percent from the field (23 of 66) and made 7 of 27 3-pointers.

Hawkinson had a double-double in the first half, scoring 17 points and grabbing 10 rebounds. That, and a 14-3 run over a six-minute span early in the first half, staked Washington State to a double-digit lead it would never relinquish.

The Cougars took their biggest lead in the final two minutes, with Viont'e Daniels' 3-pointer with 1:34 remaining giving Washington State an 87-59 lead.
