    GREELEY, Colo. -- Connor Osborne scored 19 points to lead a balanced scoring attack, and Northern Colorado dominated Southwest 127-81 on Saturday in the Bears' season opener.

    Osborne was 8 of 9 from the field for the Bears, who started the game on a 14-2 run and never looked back. Paul Garnica added 18 points, Tim Huskisson had 16, and Bryce Douvier scored 15 points and grabbed 10 rebounds. UNC made 71 percent of its shots, including 11 of its 20 3-point attempts.

    The Bears, picked to finish third in the Big Sky Conference this season in the media poll after a seventh-place finish last season, led 70-40 at halftime and by as many as 47 in the second half.

    Jonathan Williams had 22 points and Clarence Rivas added 19 for the Mustangs, an NAIA program. Southwest shot just 31 percent from the field.
