Jordan Dykstra added 20 points and Griffan Callahan had 19 for the Jackrabbits (16-5, 8-1 Summit), who got their first win in Fargo since the 2004-05 season.

Taylor Braun led the Bison (13-6, 6-4) with 28 points, including a game-tying layup with 8 seconds left in regulation. It was Braun's third basket in the final 52 seconds. Wolters missed a 3-pointer as time expired, forcing overtime.
