THIS WEEK IN NOCO SPORTS

WOMEN’S BASKETBALL

        The Bears managed to get their scoring touch back as they won two over Portland State and Sacramento State last week and now have a short rest before starting the Big Sky tournament.

        It’s also worth mentioning that the Bears scored a 102 points and held the No.1 scoring offense in the Big Sky of Sacramento State to 74 points and a 36 percent shooting rate. 

        A few short weeks ago the Bears sat No. 1 in the conference but have slipped to third following back-to-back losses to North Dakota and Idaho State. 

    The Bears were bullied during the North Dakota matchups as their only weakness appears to be size but UNC’s ability to score from all positions has teams reeling for help.

    The trio of Savannah Smith, Courtney Smith and Savannah Scott are clicking again just as they were when UNC went on a 11-game win streak. The trio all scored 20+ points against Sacramento State and Scott finished two assists shy of a triple-double as she scored 25 points and 12 rebounds.

    The Bears will still have a bye and will play the winner of the Idaho State-Montana game. 

 

MEN’S BASKETBALL

        Northern Colorado said good bye to senior Jont’e Dotson and did so with a 70-67 win over Sacramento State saturday afternoon at the Bank of Colorado Arena.

        Led by junior guard D.J Miles the Bears managed to overcome a poor outing in the first half of the game and ended up shooting 17-of-28 in the final 20 minutes of the game. 

        Miles led UNC with 20 points including six straight free throws to seal the game in the final moments. 

    The Bears can now focus on the future and will have many decisions to make as red-shirt seniors Anthony Johnson and Tanner Morgan will return to the lineup in 2017. 

    For parts of this season the Bears have had to play with nine players as injuries have left Northern Colorado short-handed. Now head coach Jeff Linder will have the opposite problem as Johnson and Morgan look to be key-starters, leaving this seasons starters reaching for minutes. UNC will have to wait until next season to see how things pan out. 

    UNC can now move forward as they will serve their self-imposed penalty and sit out this seasons Big Sky Conference championships.
