On Saturday, Huff scored a career-high 34 points as UND beat Eastern Washington 78-74 to move to 11-8 in conference play and clinch a bid in the postseason tournament. Huff scored UND’s first 15 points and netted 20 points in the first seven minutes.

Huff finished the first half with 24 points. His 34 points are the second-most by a Big Sky player this season. Huff also had four rebounds and two steals.
