Landis, IPFW upset North Dakota State 77-71

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) Max Landis scored 7 of his 16 in the final 2:46 and led six IPFW players in double figures to help the Mastodons beat Summit League-leading North Dakota State 77-71 on Saturday.

Isaiah McCray scored 14 and Mo Evans had 13 for IPFW (9-11, 2-5), which only had six players score.

A 3-pointer by A.J. Jacobsen pulled North Dakota State (13-7, 5-2), which trailed by as many as 16 in the second half, within three with four minutes left.

Landis made 4 of 4 free throws during a 10-4 spurt which pushed IPFW’s lead to 73-64 with 58 seconds to go, but Paul Miller hit a 3 and Kory Brown made a layup and a jumper, while IPFW went 2 of 4 from the line, to make it 75-71 with 22 seconds remaining, but the Bison would get no closer.

Jacobsen hit 4 of 6 3-pointers and led North Dakota State with 17 points.
