FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- Damon Heuir scored a season-high 30 points, including four 3-pointers, to lead Southern Utah past Northern Arizona 89-77 on Saturday.
Heuir, a senior, was 6 of 11 from the field and 14 of 16 from the free-throw line. He fell just short of his career high of 33 points, set in a win over Bryant in November 2011.
Gabe Rogers had 23 points for the Lumberjacks (5-9, 2-2), who failed to record their first back-to-back victories of the season after beating Sacramento State 57-50 on Thursday.
Southern Utah led 42-30 at halftime. NAU pulled within 51-46 on Rogers' two free throws with 12:33 to play, but the Lumberjacks got no closer the rest of the way.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
As the Sooners look to life without superstar Buddy Hield and his sidekicks, it's clear their unseasoned players will need to grow up fast.
