Beating a team twice in one season is difficult. Beating a team twice in the span of two weeks on its home floor is tougher than shooting baskets with a blindfold on.
Still, the Montana State University-Northern men's basketball team did exactly that with an 87-82 win over Rocky Mountain College on Saturday night in Billings. And the Lights weren't shooting with blindfolds on either.
Northern knocked off the two-time defending tournament champ Bears in decisive fashion - regardless of what the final score indicated - with an efficient offense, a stingy defense and a whole bunch of heart.
