Northern Colorado rallies to beat Sacramento State 70-65
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) Jordan Davis scored 21 of his 28 points in the second half Saturday night to help Northern Colorado overcome a 10-point halftime deficit to beat Sacramento State 70-65 in the Big Sky Conference opener for both teams.
Bodie Hume had 15 of his 18 points after the break for the Bears (7-5, 1-0), who closed the final 2:30 of the game with a 12-2 run. Davis scored 10 points during that run, including a 3-pointer that gave Northern Colorado the lead for good at 66-65 with 46 seconds left.
The Bears trailed 37-27 at the break and closed the deficit to one with a 9-0 run early in the second half. The rest of the period was back-and-forth and the Hornets (6-4, 0-1) had a 9-0 run to lead 63-58 with 2:43 left. But while Davis made all three of Northern Colorado's field-goal attempts in the final three minutes, Sacramento State went 1 for 6 from the field over the same span.
