    PORTLAND, Ore. -- Tate Unruh scored 23 points and made five 3-pointers to lead Northern Colorado to an 85-75 victory against Portland State on Saturday night.

    Derrick Barden added 18 points and Tevin Svihovec and Paul Garnica 10 each for the Bears (11-17, 9-10 Big Sky), who pulled away in the second half to stay in the hunt for a conference tournament berth, with one game remaining. The top seven teams qualify for the postseason.

    Aaron Moore scored 20 points and Michael Harthun 18 for the Vikings (8-18, 5-13), who were eliminated from tournament contention.
