Men: Saint Martin’s vs. Northwest Nazarene – Marcus Pavilion – 7:30 PM

A pair of big games on tap tonight at Marcus Pavilion when the Saint Martin’s women face Alaska Anchorage and the men follow them up with a battle with Northwest Nazarene.

The women currently sit in sixth place in the GNAC at 6-4, a half game behind a big pack of teams at 7-4 including tonight’s opponent, Alaska Anchorage, and a game and a half ahead of seventh place Northwest Nazarene. The Seawolves are the top scoring team in the GNAC and fourth in the nation scoring 84.5 points per game. The Saints knocked off the Seawolves on January 11th, 85-78.

The men get a second chance at Northwest Nazarene after they fell apart in the second half and gave up a 14 point halftime lead in an 80-76 loss in Nampa. Since then, the Crusaders (3-7) have dropped five straight games and are a half game behind the Saints, Montana State-Billings and Western Oregon for sixth place in the GNAC. Six teams make the conference tournament hosted by the Saints in March.
