    Northern Arizona led by 11 points with 12:22 remaining in the first half after a 15-2 run, but the Eagles answered with an 18-4 spurt sparked by a pair of Stanojevec 3-pointers and took a 24-22 lead with 6:34 remaining.

    Johnson tied it up with a driving layup on the Lumberjacks' next possession, then Jones put his team ahead to stay with a short jumper in the lane with 4:19 left.
