Men's Basketball to Host End of Year Banquet April 25

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. - Head Men's Basketball Coach Jack Murphy invites all fans to the 2013 NAU Men's Basketball Banquet on Thursday, April 25 at 6 p.m. at the 1899 Bar & Grill Ballroom. The cost to attend the banquet will be $50 per person as we celebrate the 2013 men's basketball season.

Senior Gabe Rogers ranked second in the Big Sky in scoring and was named to the All-Conference first team after finishing his career fifth in program history in career points.
