MEN'S BASKETBALL: Cardinals crowned East Region Champs following overtime thriller


The NIC men’s basketball team claimed a 103-100 OT victory over the Community Colleges of Spokane on Wednesday, Feb. 19 in Spokane, Washington. Sophomore Nate Pryor hit a driving layup with 19 seconds remaining in overtime to give North Idaho the lead, and sophomore Jaden Dewar would then ice the game moments later with two free throws. With the win, the Cardinals claimed the Northwest Athletic Conference East Region title.

Dewar was outstanding with game on the line, scoring 21 of his game-high 28 points in the second half and overtime. Four other Cards finished with double-digit scoring. Sophomore Christian Guess had 17 points while sophomore Yusuf Mohamed recorded a double-double--15 points and 10 rebounds in a reserve role. Sophomores Phillip Malatare and James Carlson each added 14 points. Five of Carlson’s points came in overtime, including a key three-pointer with 41 seconds remaining that tied the game at 99-99. In all, the Cardinals outscored the Sasquatch bench 43-8.

NIC, now 25-1 overall and 14-0 in the NWAC East Region, close out the season with a pair of home contests; this Saturday, Feb. 22 at 4:00 p.m. against Yakima Valley College, and then sophomore night on Wednesday, Feb. 26 at 7:30 p.m. against Columbia Basin College.
