The Runnin' Vikes held off North Idaho College (NIC) late to secure a huge road win in Coeur d'Alene, 84-82.
NIC (19-6, 9-3) was leading the eastern region of the Northwest Athletic Conference entering the night while Big Bend Community College (14-11, 7-6) was trying to pull closer to a playoff berth.
Vikings point guard Kobe Huerta turned in one of his most complete performances of the season scoring 20 points while dishing out 9 assists and grabbing 7 rebounds. Big Bend also got stellar showings from Mauricio Smith (16 points and 12 boards) and Miles Brown (13 points and 11 boards) who both turned in double-double efforts.
It looks like the Vikings are going to need some help from NWAC East Region field in addition to winning out to secure a playoff spot. Big Bend hosts Columbia Basin on Saturday (Feb. 17) and Treasure Valley (Feb. 24) before finishing out the regular season on the road against Yakima (Feb. 28).
