Northern Colorado upsets Northern Arizona 76-74

GREELEY, Colo. (AP) Tevin Svihovec scored 20 points and Tim Huskisson came up with a big play late to help Northern Colorado upset Northern Arizona 76-74 on Saturday.

Huskisson's layup with 27 seconds to go pulled Northern Colorado (14-14, 9-8 Big Sky) to within one point at 73-72. After NAU's Kris Yanku missed the front end of a one-and-one, Svihovec was sent to the line with six seconds left by Jordyn Martin and made both to put the Bears up one.

On the inbounds play, Huskisson came up with a steal and was fouled, making both for a three-point lead with five ticks left.

Huskisson then fouled Ako Kaluna on the floor, and after Kaluna hit the first, Svihovec gathered the rebound to preserve the win.

Yanku led Northern Arizona (16-13, 11-5) with 20 points. The Lumberjacks remain in fourth in the conference with two games left.
