POINT LOOKOUT, Mo. — The Eagles of Northwest University were down big, but not enough to knock them out.

Northwest erased a 20-point deficit in the second half to beat top-ranked Bellevue University (Neb.) 61-56 on Friday in the NAIA Division II men's basketball tournament at The College of the Ozarks' Keeter Gymnasium.

The 16th-seeded Eagles of Kirkland, down 33-20 at the break and 44-24 four minutes into the second half, got back into the game with an 11-0 run and took their first lead, 54-53, with 1 minute, 18 seconds to play.

The Bruins (32-2) regained the lead on a Joe Webb jumper before Eagles forward Chris Keller, a 6-foot-5 senior out of Mill Creek's Jackson High School, hit a three-pointer to put Northwest (26-8) up for good. The Eagles made four free throws the rest of the way to clinch the win and a spot in the quarterfinals of the 32-team tournament.

Northwest will play unseeded Cornerstone University of Grand Rapids, Mich., today at 11 a.m.

The Eagles were led by 14 points and 11 rebounds from Aaron Sawyer, a 6-8 senior from Shelton. Stephen Ishmael, a 6-7 junior out of Redmond High, chipped in 11 points and five rebounds.
