Augustana Falls to Northern State and Sees Season Come to an End
The Augustana men's basketball team had a roller coaster of a season and it all came to an end on Saturday during the NSIC Tournament.
Augie fell to Northern State 66-64 in a hard fought battle from the start.
The Vikings and the Wolves traded blows all first half and Augie held a three point lead going into the break.
Northern State got off to a fast start in the second half and really controlled most of the second half until a late rally from Augustana.
Augie tied the game with 15 seconds left but two free throws with 2 seconds left gave NSU the lead by two.
The final play saw NSU steal the inbounds pass and close out the win.
Augie ends the season with a 19-11 record.
The NSIC Tournament continues on Sunday at the Sanford Pentagon with the second round of the women's bracket.
