FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) - Lawrence Alexander scored 20 points, including two key baskets down the stretch, as North Dakota State defeated IPFW 58-54 on Saturday.

After IPFW pulled within two points with 3:17 remaining, Alexander buried back-to-back buckets to put the Bison (19-6, 10-3 Summit) ahead 55-49 with 1:48 left. Five straight points by Luis Jacobo got the Mastadons (10-16, 3-9 Summit) within one with 32 seconds to go, but Mike Felt hit 3 of 4 free throws the rest of the way for North Dakota State to clinch it.
