Northern Colorado never trailed. The Bears opened an early 17-8 lead thanks to a 9-2 run capped by Paul Garnica's layup barely seven minutes into the game.

The Bears, who led by 22 points in the second half, put the game away when Beitzel was intentionally fouled on a fast break, converted the basket and hit both free throws with 14:02 left to make it 58-38.

The Vikings never seriously challenged the rest of the way.

The Bears shot 50 percent, while Portland State managed 49 percent.
