Freshman Jordan Hasquet had a double-double in a 13 point win over the Northern Arizona Lumberjacks in Flagstaff that wasn’t that close. One Lumberjack fan was so mad about the loss he pulled a fire alarm causing the PA announcer to ask everyone to leave the building. The Grizz stayed to receive their trophy but that is classic sportsmanship and something I’m surprised nobody has thought of before. I’m not sure if the Grizz have enough experience to cause a UCLA or Gonzaga fan to pull any alarms.
