Northern continues their series of road games tomorrow (11-18-15) as they travel to take on NCAA DII powerhouse Fort Lewis College. Who has already beat Wyoming, NCAA DI, this year. “We understand we are going to have our hands full, and have to play better in order to give us a chance to win against these guys (Fort Lewis). We have to figure out how to make free throws and how not to turn the ball over so much. If we can do that, I think we can be a position to win any game” Head Coach Ryan Cordova stated following the WNMU win.
