KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -Devin Uskoski had 20 points and 24 rebounds, and Rocky Mountain College won its first national championship in any sport by beating Columbia College 77-61 in the NAIA title game Tuesday night.
A libel arts school of 800 from Billings, Mont., Rocky Mountain (31-7) picked apart Columbia's defense to build a 19-point halftime lead and never let up, shooting 50 percent to turn the first NAIA championship between unseeded teams into a rout.
Nate Richardson, Rocky's 5-foot-5 point guard, darted and dashed his way through Columbia's defense, scoring most of his 14 points on a variety of high-arching floaters and runners in the lane. Chase Sukut and James Bulluck added 11 each for the Bears, the fourth unseeded team in six years to win the NAIA title.
Christian Lewis had 24 points on 10-of-14 shooting and Brett Hoskins added 13 for Columbia (27-10) in its first NAIA title game.
