Hume scored 16 points with four 3-pointers and Radebaugh scored 19, grabbed 10 rebounds and made five assists as Northern Colorado (18-8, 11-4 Big Sky Conference) survived a Southern Utah comeback. The Thunderbirds trailed by 14 at the half but fought back into a 64-64 tie with 38 seconds to go.
Knight tied the game at 64 and, after Hume's trey, brought Southern Utah as close as 67-66 with two seconds left. But Hume threw the inbounds pass nearly full-court to Radebaugh, who was fouled and made the final free throw.
The Bears, who have won three in a row, kept pace with Eastern Washington at second place in the Big Sky, both just a game behind Montana with five games remaining.
Southern Utah's leading scorer Cameron Oluyitan (13.9 ppg) was held to two points on 1-for-8 shooting, 0-for-3 from distance.
