CALDWELL, Idaho-- The College of Idaho went on a 13-point run in the second half, and halted Northwest Nazarene’s string of seven-straight wins, as the Yotes defeated the Crusaders, 93-83.
The College of Idaho never trailed in the rivalry game, but did see its double-digit lead cut to just one point at the 12-minute mark. But the Yotes got five offensive rebounds in a five minute span, and turned those boards into points to pull away for the victory. Taylor Pruett hit a clutch three-pointer and was fouled, adding four points to the Yotes run.
Pruett scored 21 points on the night, two short of teammate Demetrius Perkins, who scored a career-high 23 points. Kevin Rima led the Crusaders with 22 points.
