GREELEY, Colo. – The Northern Arizona men's basketball team will take on second-place Northern Colorado (10-3) with a chance to secure hosting a Big Sky Tournament quarterfinal game on March. Tipoff is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.
The Lumberjacks are 8-6 after a 63-42 victory over Sacramento State on Thursday, trailing Montana (12-3), Northern Colorado and Weber State (10-4) in the standings. A Lumberjack win or Montana State loss would secure the No. 4 seed in the upcoming tournament and guarantee a home game on March 5. The Bobcats play at Portland State on Saturday.
