Big Sky college basketball features the Northern Arizona Lumberjacks taking the floor with the Southern Utah Thunderbirds.

The Northern Arizona Lumberjacks shocked Idaho State 81-69 to even their conference record at 2-2 as an 8.5 point road dog.

Northern Arizona connected at a white hot 56% and the Bengals could not keep up with their 36% marksmanship.

Luke Avdalovic led the Lumberjacks offensive spree with 17 points followed by Ted McCree with 16 points and three yanks.

Carlos Hines gave NAU 14 points and six helpers while Cameron Shelton and Jonathan Andre with 12 and ten points with Andre hauling in nine rebounds.

The Southern Utah Thunderbirds avoided an 0-4 start in the conference with a 90-82 OT win at Weber State as a 13 point underdog.

This was a three man offense for Southern Utah with Andre Adams, Cameron Oluytan and Dre Martin tossing in 18 points apiece and combining for 24 rebounds.

Brandon Better gave the Thunderbirds 15 points and three assists followed by Jacob Calloway with nine points and ten rebounds.

Under is 5-1 in NAU Lumberjacks last 6 overall and under is 4-1 in NAU Lumberjacks last 5 vs. Big Sky. Southern Utah Thunderbirds are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and Southern Utah Thunderbirds are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall and Southern Utah Thunderbirds are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. Big Sky. NAU Lumberjacks are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Southern Utah and road team is 8-1 ATS in the last 9 meetings.

We can argue which team has done better but the Thunderbirds can be inconsistent at times…

Pick:
Northern Arizona +5

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
