NAU's Sir surges off bench, scores 25 in Lumberjack's win over EWU

Posted: Updated:

CHENEY, Wash.-  Stephen Sir came off the bench to score 25 points as Northern Arizona beat Eastern Washington, 91-to-80.

Sir was 7-for-10 on 3-pointers and has now made 26 of his last 34 shots, 76 percent, from that range.

With Northern Arizona clinging to a 57-to-56 lead in the second half, the Lumberjacks began a 12-to-2 run to open up a 69-to-58 advantage. Eastern Washington never got closer than seven the rest of the way.

Rodney Stuckey led the Eagles with 24 points and eight rebounds. Paul Butorac added 16 points and Kellen Williams had 10.

The Eagles shot 57 percent from the floor, but hit just 8-for-22 on free throws and 2-for-14 from 3-point range.
