Lumberjacks beat Hornets in Big Sky action
FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP)—Cameron Jones scored a career-high 28 points as Northern Arizona beat Sacramento State 68-58 in its regular-season home finale Saturday night.
The Lumberjacks (8-17, 5-9 Big Sky) led 37-17 at halftime before Sacramento State (2-25, 1-13) rallied back, tying the score at 44 on Justin Eller’s 3-pointer with 11:09 remaining.
But Jones hit two jumpers and a free throw to start a 15-0 run that gave Northern Arizona a 59-44 lead with seven minutes left.
Jones, a sophomore, finished 10-for-14 from the field with five 3-pointers.
Freshman Josh Lepley had a pair of career-highs with 15 points and eight rebounds, while sophomore Shane Johannsen added 11 points and seven rebounds for the Lumberjacks.
Jonathan Malloy paced Sacramento State with 16 points with Randy Adams had 12 and Antonio Flaggs 10.
