Garrett finished with a team-high 15 points to lead College of Idaho to a 67-54 victory. He notched 11 first-half points to help the Yotes build a 35-26 advantage. Garrett made a pair of three-pointers and finished with seven defensive rebounds to spark the Yotes to their eighth consecutive win.

College of Idaho needs one more win to clinch at least a share of the regular season conference championship for the first time since 2004.

Powdrill finished with 16 points in Cal Lutheran’s 80-76 overtime loss against host La Verne on Feb. 8 in a Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference game.
