Jordan Dykstra added 20 points and Griffan Callahan had 19 for the Jackrabbits (16-5, 8-1 Summit), who snapped a 10-game losing streak to NDSU and got their first win in Fargo since the 2004-05 season.

Taylor Braun led the Bison (13-6, 6-3) 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.

Before Braun's basket, SDSU had led the entire second half. The Jacks' biggest lead was 64-53 with 5:55 left in regulation.

In overtime, North Dakota State scored the first four points before the Jackrabbits took control. Wolters hit a 3-pointer and Callahan went 6 of 6 from the free-throw line before Chad White, Dykstra and Wolters each hit two foul shots to secure the win.

Braun completed his fourth double-double of the season with a game-high 12 rebounds and NDSU had a 38-28 advantage on the glass.

TrayVonn Wright had 16 points and six rebounds, Lawrence Alexander had 14 points and four assists, and Dylan Hale added 11 points and four assists for the Bison.

SDSU, the top 3-point shooting team in The Summit League, went 11-for-24 from the arc for 45.8 percent. NDSU shot 50 percent overall compared to 46.6 percent for the Jacks.

The crowd of 5,011 was the largest at the Bison Sports Arena since Feb. 17, 2009, when NDSU beat SDSU 96-74 before a crowd of 5,790.

Most of the game was played with two officials. Greg Langsdorf missed 4 minutes, 2 seconds midway through the first half due to illness and did not return after the halftime intermission.
