The Utes scorched the nets, shooting 66 percent from the field and 69 percent (9-for-13) from three-point range. Utah also had a commanding 31-10 advantage on the boards.
Nate Harris scored 12 points and Shea Bradshaw had 11 to lead Montana Tech, a Division I NAIA school from Butte, Mont.
Utah scored the first nine points of the game. Nevill helped get the Utes off to their quick start getting a put-back and a dunk within the first three minutes. Bryant then hit a three-pointer to give the Utes a 9-0 lead with just under 16 minutes to play in the half.
However, Montana Tech hung around for most of the first half and got within 15-12 after Casey Briggs canned a jumper at the 9:26 mark. The Utes then went on an 11-2 run over the next five and a half minutes to push their lead to a dozen. Green scored the final four points during the spurt, getting a steal and a transition layup, followed by a jumper to put Utah ahead 26-14 with four minutes to play in the half.
Leading 34-24 at the start of the second half, Utah increased its lead to 49-29 over the next five minutes. Most of Utah's damage was done from beyond the arc with Bryant making three quick three-pointers and Ricky Johns also draining a pair.
Deane helped the Runnin' Utes close out the game strong by scoring seven points in the final three minutes. He got a transition layup after a steal by freshman Curtis Eatmon, made a free throw, drained a jumper from just beyond the free throw line, and got another lay in after receiving a nice pass from Johns.
Johns led the Utes with five assists and also had eight points. He played 26 minutes as a starter. Bryant fueled Utah's long-distance shooting performance, hitting 4-of-7 from beyond the arc. He also had four assists, no turnovers and two steals.
Utah opens its regular season against Southern Utah on Friday at 7:00 p.m. (MST) in the Jon M. Huntsman Center.
