Mike Dunn With Game-Winner For Northern Arizona (Video)

I will have more to say on the game later, but wanted to post video of the game winner by Northern Arizona senior guard Mike Dunn. With the game tied at 65 (after a Tevin Svihovec bank three), the Lumberjacks went coast to coast for the game winner to beat Northern Colorado.

Three things to notice.

1. Great play call by Jack Murphy to get the ball into Stallon Saldivar's hands with his momentum going toward the basket. With only 4.8 seconds to play that was huge.
2. Great decision making by Saldivar. He is a senior who is in the top ten in Big Sky career assists, and it showed. Took it far enough to draw the defender, then found Dunn open.
3. Great clock awareness by Dunn, who drove as close as he could to still be able to settle and get off a good shot before the buzzer went off. That's how it's done, and that is how Northern Arizona got the game-winner.

(Game winner is at the 1:00 mark)
