Holland
Woods II
Portland, OR - In a battle of the 8th and 9th place teams in the Big Sky Conference the Portland State Vikings, playing their first full season in the renovated Stott Center, ran away from Northern Arizona by the score of 103-94. The Vikings took control of game with relentless full court pressure defense, transition offense, and never let off the throttle the entire game.

The very fast and aggressive start knocked the Northern Arizona down early on but they never quit. Northern Arizona begin making shots, and following the lead of freshman point guard Cameron Shelton who went the the free throw line ten times in the first half converting on eight. The pressure attack with trapping schemes all across the floor gave the Vikings a 58-44 at the half. The second half was much of the same, and the closest the Lumberjacks got in the game was 99-92 with 1:08 remaining, following a made free throw from Shelton. 6'4' Northern Arizona freshman guard Luke Avdalovic played well in the second half, scoring fourteen of his points connecting on 4 out of 8 three pointers. He finished with 20 points (7-12 FG, 6-10 3 FG). The Vikings would seal the victory as point guard Holland Woods (6'0''-PG) broke the full court press a few times for assists on dunks by Sal Nuhu. Portland State tooped Northern Arizona in points in the paint (54-28) and bench points (38-19). The Vikings shot 59 percent for the game.

For Portland State 6'0' sophomore guard Holland Woods had his third double-double this season as he displayed his talents as an exceptional ball handler with good speed and quickness. Woods has an innate ability to find teammates without directly looking at them while changing gears and direction on the court. He finished with 27 points (11-15 FG, 1-4 3 FG, 4-5 FT), six rebounds, ten assists with seven turnovers and three steals. Woods is definitely a player to follow over the next two seasons as he has some good tools and skill sets to work with. 6'8' junior center Sal Nuhu, a shot blocking presence in and around the paint, runs the floor well, with nice touch around the paint. He scored 20 points (7-11 FG, 6-9 FT) with eight rebounds, six blocks and two steals. He is aa lengthy athletic center who closes out well on shooters. Shooting guard Michael Nuga provided the necessary outside shooting with good bounce off the floor, nice range, and trajectory on his shot. He scored 27 points (9-17 FG), making 4-of-8 three pointers in the second half. 5'10' Senior guard Deante Strickland played some solid minutes off the bench for the Vikings with his aggressive tenacity on defense, speed, power, penetration, and shooting. He finished with 8 points (3-6 FG, 2-4 3 FG), four rebounds, and a 4 to 1 assist/turnover ratio.. Senior 6'0' guard Derek Brown brought the energy necessary to begin the high octane tempo in eleven minutes of play contributing 8 points (4-7 FG), two rebounds, two assists and two steals. Brown is a very explosive athlete, who plays very hard on both ends of the court.

For Northern Arizona 6'7' sophomore Forward Bernie Andre was a complete competitor on both ends of the floor. He isn't afraid of the physical contact, has good size, athleticism, and skills as a combo wing to slash to the basket or battle inside. Andre had 20 points (5-8 FG, 1-3 3FG, 9-13 FT), twelve rebounds and three assist. He brings a certified toughness to the game for the Lumberjacks. 6'2' freshman point guard Cameron Shelton is a very talented left handed guard with a nice burst of speed, quickness, and defensive competitiveness. He scored 15 points (3-7 FG, 9-12 FT) with three rebounds and two assists. Shelton has the ability with his explosiveness to get into the paint and make things happen with physical contact and has good size at the point. 6'4' Freshman guard Luke Avdalovic is a shooter whom can beat you in seconds. He doesn't need the ball in his hand to make plays, his movement without the ball is offense alone. He is a catch and pop shooter whom is currently shooting 50 percent on three pointers on the season. 6'8' Freshman forward Nik Mains has a bright future. With good length, size, some athleticism, and the ability to finish with either hand around the basket, Mains finished with 12 points (5-7 FG, 2-4 3FG) in twenty minutes of play.

Portland State (10-14, 5-8), hosts Southern Utah (12-11, 7-7) on Saturday February 16th while Northern Arizona (7-17, 5-9), travels to play Sacramento State (11-11, 5-8) also on Saturday.
