FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - Gilbert Ibarra scored 20 points, including the go-ahead free throws in the second half, and Embry-Riddle upset Northern Arizona for an 82-70 win Monday night.

Embry-Riddle, an NAIA program, trailed by as much as 15 midway through the opening half but kept chipping away, cutting the deficit to 40-36 at the break, and edging into its first lead of the game with Ryan Skurdal’s 3-pointer with 18:47 left.

After three lead changes and four ties, Embry-Riddle slipped past Northern Arizona for good with Ibarra’s free throws, which sparked a 15-4 run and made it 78-67 with 33 seconds left.

The Eagles protected it the rest of the way with 4-for-4 shooting from the free throw line.

Logan Skurdal and Jaran Hoover had 12 points apiece for Embry-Riddle, Ryan Skurdal had 10 points and Nick Johnson grabbed 14 rebounds.

Chris Bowling led Northern Arizona (0-2) with 16 points and Torry Johnson had 10.
