'Clutch' Warriors finish off MSU-Northern
LEWISTON, ID —
The Warrior men and Skylights going at it Thursday evening as well and Warriors finding themselves in trouble with under nine to go after Ryan Reeves scores in the paint but the Warriors would dig out of that hole.
First it’s a little floater from the emerging Zavon Jackson, then the hard cut from David Shedrick gives the Warriors the lead back at 58-57 with 6:40 to go. Then it came down to just clutch offense in the waning moments of this one.
Under two to play it’s the senior Ty Higbie with the soft glasser then with a two-point lead with 20 ticks to go. Lights needing a stop and they get it on the miss in close from Doug McDaniel. But the relentlessness of McDaniel pays off with the tip in, he had 22. Warriors are winners 71-67.
Taking a look at your Thursday night college hoops scoreboard, Cougs down in Salt Lake City giving everything Utah wanted and more but Wazzu comes up on the losing end.
Vic Sanders and Idaho win for the fourth time in a row. Sanders with 25 and Clarkston grad Trevon Allen had eight on a pair of threes. And first place Weber State also losing tonight. The Vandals trying to creep back into the title race. They trail the Cats by just 1.5 games.
