The Montana State University-Northern men’s basketball team had just two games left on its non-conference schedule. And though the trip was tough, the Lights took care of business.
Thursday night, the Lights thrashed Portland Bible College, 81-63 in Portland, Ore., then MSU-N wrapped up its 2012 schedule with a hard-fought, 71-67 win over NCAA DII Linfield College last Friday night in McMinville, Ore.
The wins pushed the No. 22 Lights to 13-2 ahead of the full Frontier Conference season, which begins in early January.
With two wins last week in tow, the Lights will now prepare for Frontier play next week. MSU-N hosts Dickinson State Jan. 3 and Rocky Mountain College Jan. 4.
