FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) — Jordyn Martin scored 23 points on 8-of-9 shooting from the field and grabbed 14 rebounds, and Northern Arizona held off Montana State with a 69-63 win on Thursday night.

Marcus DeBerry made a pair of free throws with eight seconds left to seal the win. DeBerry finished with 14 points and Chris Bowling had 12 before fouling out. The Lumberjacks led 34-22 at the half and finished with a 46-34 edge on the glass.
