Idell Bell scored 16 points off the bench to lead five players in double figures and the North Idaho men’s basketball team held Colorado Northwestern CC (1-26, 1-18) to 13 first-half points in a 96-61 victory Saturday in Coeur d’Alene.

The Cardinals held CNCC to 4-of-33 shooting in the first half, while building a 32-point lead by halftime.

NIC was 45.9 percent from the floor over that span, hitting four 3-pointers for its 45 points. NIC shot 17 of 37 from the floor in both halves.

The top three scorers for NIC all came off the bench. B.J. Shearry scored 15 points while Nick Fromm tallied 13 points and 12 rebounds for the Cardinals (26-4, 16-4), who will enter next week’s Region 18 tournament at Price, Utah, as the No. 1 seed.
