Northern Colorado comes into this game after losing two of their last three games, but they are still 11-6 in conference play and tied for second. The Bears are scoring over 80 points per game and they are shooting 48.7% from the field, which helps cover up a pretty bad defense. Northern Arizona is 7-10 in conference play, but they will be at home for this game. The Lumberjacks are only scoring 68.7 points per game on 43.6% field goal shooting, which is not enough to match this high scoring Northern Colorado team. Take the Bears on the road.
