MEN’S BASKETBALL: Cardinals win consolation title

12/30/2018

North Idaho College overcame a cold-shooting first half, caught fire in the second, and rolled to a 102-73 victory over Central Arizona Saturday night in the 2018 Fiesta Bowl Junior College Shootout in Mesa, Arizona.

The Cardinals (11-2) outscored the Vaqueros(4-9) 65-33 in the final 20-minutes to rebound from a 40-37 half-time deficit. Sophomore Ray Quan Evans led four players in double-figures with a full stat line of 19 points, 9 rebounds, 5 assists, and 4 steals. Freshman Nate Pryor, named to the All-Tournament Team, added 15 points while Sophomore Alphonso Anderson just missed a double-double with 14 points and 9 rebounds. Sophomore Jared Greene, second in the NWAC in field goal percentage at 70 percent, continued his hot shooting going 5 for 7 for his 10 points.

“It was a great tune-up for Conference play,” said Head Coach Corey Symons. “We’re ready to go.”
