North Dakota St battles back in second half, beats UC Davis (Dec 14, 2016)
FARGO, N.D. (AP) Paul Miller scored 17 points and North Dakota State came back from 10 down midway through the second half to beat UC Davis 74-70 on Wednesday night.
UC Davis led 58-48 after a Brynton Lemar steal and layup with 7:57 to go. However the Bison (7-4) quickly responded by scoring the next six and it was back-and-forth the rest of the way.
Miller drilled a 3 with 3:54 left which broke a 62-62 tie and gave North Dakota State the lead for good. UC Davis managed to get to back to within two-points on two separate occasions, but did not get over the hump. Two Khy Kabellis free throws iced it with 13 seconds left.
Kabellis and Carlin Dupree each had 15 points for North Dakota State, with Kabellis adding seven rebounds and five assists.
Brynton Lemar scored 22 points to lead the Aggies (5-6), who have lost four straight.
