EVERETT, Wash. — RayQuan Evans tied the game with a late 3-pointer and Idaho transfer Tyler Brimhall gave North Idaho College the lead for good late, and the Cardinals held off the Edmonds College Tritons 86-81 in the opening day of the Everett College Tournament on Saturday.

Evans finished with 23 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists for NIC (3-0), which outrebounded Edmonds 52-32.

“It was a tough game,” NIC coach Corey Symons said. “They play hard and have some tall kids. It was pretty much back and forth all night and really down to the wire. It was a gritty win. We played hard and won a lot of the 50/50 balls.”

Iain McLaughlin had 19 points and six rebounds for NIC while guarding Edmonds’ Zach Walton, who scored 16 points after entering the game averaging 30 per game game.

“Iain was huge off the bench for us,” Symons said. “He played a huge game for us.”

NIC will face tournament host Everett tonight at 6.
