    GREELEY, Colo. -- Devon Beitzel scored 19 points and Will Figures scored 14 as Northern Colorado defeated Idaho State 79-74 Saturday night.

    Idaho State trailed 73-68 before Chron Tatum hit a 3-pointer to pull Idaho State (7-17, 4-6 Big Sky) within two points with 38 seconds left. Northern Colorado (10-15, 6-6) made 6-of-8 foul shots the rest of the way to hold off the Bengals.

    Idaho State trailed 41-30 at halftime but tied it 68-68 with 2:21 to go. A jumper by John Pena and a layup by Figures gave Northern Colorado some breathing room, though Idaho State kept the game close.

    Tatum finished with 18 points. Matt Stucki scored 15 points, and Austin Kilpatrick had 14 for Idaho State.
