SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Ako Kaluna scored 17 points, JoJo Anderson made two crucial free throws, and Northern Arizona avenged an early season loss to Sacramento State with a 73-69 win on Thursday night.

Sacramento State (10-16, 7-8 Big Sky) led by seven early in the second half before Northern Arizona rallied to take a 47-46 lead on two Anderson free throws with 13:32 left. The game remained close the rest of the way, with neither team gaining an advantage greater than six.

Kaluna hit a layup for a 70-66 Lumberjacks' lead with 34 seconds left, but the Hornets struck right back, eventually cutting it to 71-69 on an Izayah Mauriohoohoo-Le'Afa 3 with seven seconds remaining. After a Marcus Graves foul, Anderson drilled a pair at the line to ice it.

Jordyn Martin finished with 14 points for Northern Arizona (8-20, 5-10). Kaluna added 11 rebounds, including seven offensive.

Graves led the Hornets with 22 points. Eric Stuteville added 14.
