Fresno, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Chris Caird led the Drake Bulldogs with 16 points as they topped the Northern Arizona Lumberjacks, 76-56, at Save Mart Center as part of the Fresno State Classic.

Caird shot 5-of-8 from the field, including 3-of-6 from 3-point range for the Bulldogs (5-1). Aaron Hawley (13 points), Richard Carter (12) and Gary Ricks, Jr. (10) padded the Bulldogs' offense, while Carter also tallied seven assists and four steals.

Quinton Upshur turned in a game-high 20 points for the Lumberjacks (2-5) on 8- of-17 from the field. Kris Yanku and Christopher Miller came off the bench and scored 12 and 10 points, respectively.
