    OGDEN, Utah (AP) -- Zarko Comagic scored 18 points to help Northern Arizona beat Weber State 69-56 on Friday night in a battle of the two top teams in the Big Sky Conference.

    Josh Wilson added 14 for the Lumberjacks (14-6, 6-1), who avenged their three losses to the Wildcats last season including one in the league tournament championship game.

    After Comagic's three-point play gave NAU a 53-41 lead with 5:36 left in the game, the Wildcats (10-9, 5-2 Big Sky Conference) made a late surge and cut NAU's lead to 58-53 with 2:17 left following a three-point play from Jamaine Nance. But Nate Geiser hit a 3-pointer on NAU's next trip down the court and the Lumberjacks made eight free throws in the final 1:05 to secure the win.

    Kellen McCoy led WSU with 17, while Steve Panos had 13 and Dezmon Harris had 11.

    Nick Larson started a 12-3 run for the Lumberjacks that eventually gave them a 20-10 lead with 7:28 left in the first half. The Wildcats cut the lead to 23-18 with 3:44 left in the half after Panos scored four straight points but NAU took a 33-23 lead into the locker room at halftime.
