    OGDEN, Utah -- Derrick Barden scored 15 points and No. 6 seed Northern Colorado held off third-seeded Northern Arizona 62-60 in a Big Sky tournament quarterfinal matchup Thursday.

    Northern Colorado (18-12) will play top-seeded Weber State Friday in the semifinals.

    Tevin Svihovec added 14 points and Tate Unruh 12. The Bears led 39-25 at half behind 14 points from Svihovec and nine from Barden. Northern Colorado scored just eight points in the final 9:15 of the contest but withstood a 24-6 run to close the game from Northern Arizona (15-17).

    Kris Yanku's free throws with 56 seconds left brought the Lumberjacks within 62-60. After a Barden miss on the other end, Northern Arizona had a chance to tie or take the lead but Quinton Upshur missed a game-tying attempt from the lane in the waning seconds.

    Aaseem Dixon led Northern Arizona with 20 points and Max Jacobsen added 18. Yanku had 12 points.
