CEDAR CITY, Utah -- Max Jacobsen scored 15 points on 7-of-7 shooting as Northern Arizona cruised to a 70-36 victory over Southern Utah Monday night.
Northern Arizona (6-9, 3-1 Big Sky) opened the game on a 12-0 run and, after a dunk by Cal Hanks got Southern Utah on the board nearly 5 minutes into the game, rattled off another dozen straight to take a 24-2 lead midway through the first half.
Southern Utah (1-12, 0-4) turned the ball over on its first three possessions. A.J. Hess missed a 3-pointer on the fourth possession but SUU got the ball back after it went out of bounds off of the Lumberjacks -- only to turn it over again.
