North Dakota senior guard Troy Huff was one of seven players honored by the program before Saturday’s game against Eastern Washington, and he’ll leave the Big Sky school as one of the best players in program history. Huff entered the game having scored 1,883 points in his North Dakota career, ranking fourth in school history while also ranking second in steals.
Saturday’s game was a matchup of the top two scorers in the Big Sky, with EWU’s Tyler Harvey averaging 22.1 points per game and Huff 19.6. Both were held in check in the first half, with Huff failing to score a single point. He would bounce back to score 14 in the second half, with his final points of the afternoon coming on a basket as time expired, giving North Dakota the 69-67 win.
And he even did a celebratory cartwheel.
As a result of the win North Dakota moves closer to locking up a spot in the Big Sky conference tournament, with the top seven teams in the 11-team conference being eligible for a shot at the automatic bid to the NCAA tournament.
