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.
