Fort Wayne rallies to beat North Dakota State 92-88
FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — Bryson Scott scored 31 points, including the go-ahead 3-point play late, and Fort Wayne rallied from a 15-point first-half deficit to beat North Dakota State 92-88 on Saturday.
Scott scored his 500th point of the season to become the 17th Mastodon to do so, and notched his 27th career 20-point game.
Kason Harrell scored 26 points with six 3-pointers and John Konchar added 13 points for the Mastodons (14-9, 3-3 Summit League), who trailed 51-40 at halftime and by as many as 15 in the first half.
Harrell scored eight straight and the Mastodons closed to 71-70. Scott’s 3-point play amid a 10-0 run put Fort Wayne up 85-83 with 2:39 left. Scott made five more free throws from there, but the Bison closed to 90-88 on A.J. Jacobson’s free throws with 23 seconds left before Konchar iced it with two from the line.
Jacobson and Paul Miller scored 21 apiece and Tyson Ward added 12 for the Bison (10-10, 2-3).
