    FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- Kris Yanku's layup with time expiring lifted Northern Arizona over Idaho State 67-65 on Saturday.

    The game was tied at 61 with 5:48 left after Andre Hatchett's jumper for Idaho State (7-12, 4-6 Big Sky). Northern Arizona (9-12, 6-4) went up four on Aaseem Dixon's jumper and a layup by Yanku, but the Bengals responded. Ajak Magot dunked and Jeffrey Solarin's layup with 32 seconds left tied the game again at 65, setting up Yanku's heroics.

    Idaho State used an 8-3 run in the first half to lead 37-30 at the break but the Lumberjacks had a 13-0 run of their own in the second half to bring the game back to even.

    Quinton Upshur led Northern Arizona with 20 points. Dixon finished with 18 while Yanku made the most of his six points.

    Chris Hansen led Idaho State with 15 points and Hatchett had 14.
