POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) - Jonah Radebaugh and Chaz Glotta combined to score 45 points and Northern Colorado weathered a late rally to beat Idaho State, 87-81 on Saturday night.

Northern Colorado (9-17, 5-10 Big Sky) jumped on the Bengals early, taking a 10-2 lead on Radebaugh’s 3-pointer barely three minutes into the game. By halftime the Bears held a 12-point advantage. A Radebaugh trey with 15 minutes left made a 16-point lead, 55-39, and the Bears were still up by that margin with under nine minutes to play.

A Brandon Boyd layup got the deficit to single digits, 77-69, with 4:39 left and Robert Jones III made it a four-point game with a 3-pointer with :52 left, but the Bengals could get no closer.

Radebaugh was 8 of 12 from the field and finished with 23 points. Glotta hit 5 3-pointers and had 22.

Ethan Telfair had 28 points to lead Idaho State (5-21, 3-11) and Jones added another 22.
