Marin’s key plays lift Southern Utah over Northern Arizona
CEDAR CITY, Utah (AP) — Dre Marin gave Southern Utah the lead three times in the final minute, his jumper with two seconds left providing the final margin, and the Thunderbirds defeated Northern Arizona 84-82 on Saturday.
Marin’s 3-pointer gave Southern Utah a 79-78 lead with 39 seconds remaining and his 3-point play 22 seconds later regained the lead for the Thunderbirds. NAU’s Brooks Debisschop made a layup to tie it at 82 with 10 seconds left, then SUU inbounded without a timeout and Marin hit the go-ahead 10-footer from the left side at the other end. NAU’s desperation heave by Ted McCree was off the mark.
