Viks win, stay in first

Seamus Boxley scored a career-high 32 points and pulled down 13 rebounds to lead the first-place Vikings (15-6, 7-2 Big Sky) to an 84-81 victory over the Northern Arizona Lumberjacks (9-12, 2-6) Thursday night in Flagstaff, Ariz.

The Vikings took a 32-24 lead with a 9-0 run late in the first half and held on despite a furious comeback attempt by NAU late in the game.

After being shut out in the first half, Blake Walker netted 17 second-half points and Will Funn tied a career high with 12 assists.
