    This is a must win for this team and looks like a possible W. I think Presbyterian should also be a W. All other games are possible L's.

    Buffs up at the end of the 1st quarter 18-8 after it being (I believe) tied at 5 early.

    38-26 Buffs at the half. Thomas (who got the start tonight) leads with 10 points, followed by Swan and Smith with 8. Buffs shooting well at 50% overall, and are 5-6 from 3.

    Turnovers continuing to be a Buff issue- 11 at the half, although NAU has 9, so at least it's relatively even so far this evening.

    After seeing most of the lead vanish (down to 5 at one point), the Buffs get hot late in the 3rd to take a 63-49 lead going into the final quarter.

    I didn't see the beginning of the game, but sounds like Coach Lappe switched up the starting lineup a lot, with maybe 3-4 usual starters starting on the bench in this one.

    Great final ~1-1/2 quarters for the Buffs, as a 5 point lead balloons into a 90-66 victory. Buffs end up shooting .542 from the field and 7-12 from 3 for the game. They also took much better care of the ball in the 2nd half, only incurring 4 turnovers that half.

    Way to go!

    A wins a win but the line-up changes defy logic and the substitution pattern seems random. Hope there is a plan for consistency prior to Pac-12 play

    Hopefully it was like Tad's "message game" when he sat Alec and Cory at San Francisco. That game was a mess but ended up being a great thing for the program.

    Northern Arizona is not a very good team so I do not know if we learned anything about this team last night.

    I do think Lappe was sending a message to Swan, Kennedy and Huggins by not starting them.

    We will learn more Saturday about the team.
