Recap: Northern Ariz vs. Jacksonville St

Las Vegas, NV (Sports Network) - Tarvin Gaines led the way with 12 points and seven rebounds as the Jacksonville Gamecocks edged the Northern Arizona Lumberjacks, 50-48, in the consolation round of the Global Sports Classic at the Thomas & Mack Center.

Darion Rackley went 10-of-17 at the charity stripe to score 10 points for Jacksonville State (4-2), which will play North Carolina A&T in the final round on Saturday.

Gabe Rodgers scored a game-high 22 points for Northern Arizona (1-3). DeWayne Russell added 10 points for the Lumberjacks, who match up with Campbell on Saturday.

The Gamecocks scored 18 points off of turnovers and made 11-of-15 attempts at the charity stripe in the first half to take a 31-19 lead into halftime. Northern Arizona made 43.8 percent of its field goal attempts in the opening period, but fell behind as it only managed to attempt 16 shots before the break.

The Lumberjacks fought back after the intermission by converting 10-of-12 at the free throw line. Jacksonville State shot just 26.1 percent from the field, including a 0-of-5 mark from beyond the arc over the final 20 minutes.

Northern Arizona took the lead 8:36 remaining when Jordyn Martin drove into the paint and made a layup. Stallon Saldivar then made it a three-point advantage with just under seven minutes to play with another layup. Gaines then scored two put back layups to give JSU a one-point lead. Northern Arizona had the ball in the closing seconds trailing by two points, but Rackley stripped Rodgers to seal the deal.

Despite the loss, the Lumberjacks made 45.7 percent of their field goal attempts and limited JSU to 32.6 percent shooting from the floor.
