Saint Martin’s vs. Northwest Christian – Marcus Pavilion – 7:00 PM

The Saint Martin’s men FINALLY play their first non-exhibition game of the season on their home court at Marcus Pavilion tonight when they face Northwest Christian at 7:00 PM.

The Saints went 2-6 in counting games while on the road including a split in GNAC play. They knocked off Simon Fraser 78-62 on December 5th and fell to Western Washington 87-75 on December 7th. They have played two exhibition games against Division I opponents and hung with Montana on Sunday night, trailing by just eight twice in the second half.

Northwest Christian is 7-3 in their first season under head coach Luke Jackson. Jackson was one of the best and most popular players to come out of the University of Oregon and was the tenth overall pick in the 2004 NBA Draft. Now he is the head coach of the NAIA school across the street from his alma mater. The Beacons are led by Spencer Coleman’s 20.7 points per game and 11.1 rebounds per game.
