It's a good thing Christmas is around the corner. Santa better give Jabari Simmons of Cal State Northridge a new alarm clock or Coach Bobby Braswell is going to make like a chimney and blow his stack. Simmons, a junior forward who possesses a confounding blend of superior skills and suspect maturity, recently was late for consecutive games. He missed a shoot-around before the team left for San Diego on Dec. 2 because he was meeting with a professor.

NORTHERN ARIZONA (17-7, 11-3) at CAL STATE NORTHRIDGE (10-14, 6-8), 7: Northridge is coming off its most impressive performance, a 117-65 trouncing of Cal State Sacramento, but if form holds the Matadors are in trouble. They have not won two games in a row since early January. Center Jabari Simmons left the team Saturday for personal reasons and probably will not return this season. Defending Big Sky champion Northern Arizona leads the nation with a three-point shooting percentage of 44.3%.
