Jones breaks scoring mark, N. Arizona wins 79-52
Jones, who finished with 14 points, hit a 3-pointer 4 minutes into the game to break the record that Kyle Landry set three years ago. The senior guard, who now has 574 points this season, became Northern Arizona’s all-time leading scorer last Saturday.
Eric Platt added 21 points on Wednesday for the Lumberjacks (18-11, 9-7 Big Sky), who improved to 12-1 at home—their second-best home winning percentage in school history. They will carry the No. 4 seed into the quarterfinals of the Big Sky Conference tournament and host No. 5 Montana State on Saturday.
Chris Harriel scored 13 points and Philip Thomas added 10 for Portland State (13-16, 5-11), which fell to 1-11 on the road.
