Utah Valley rallies past North Dakota in OT

GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) Akolda Manyang scored a career-high 24 points and grabbed eight rebounds to propel Utah Valley to an 83-75 victory over North Dakota on Saturday.

Brandon Randolph hit three 3-pointers and scored 19 for the Wolverines (4-2), while Conner Toolson had 12 points and hit a pair of free throws with 19 seconds left in regulation to send the game to overtime.

Utah Valley grabbed control from the outset of the extra five-minute period. Two Kenneth Ogbe free throws and two buckets by Manyang gave the Wolverines a 73-69 lead at the 3:34 mark. A Manyang 3-point play and layup and two free throws from Brandon Randolph pushed the lead to 81-73 with 44 seconds left.

Sophomore guard Marlon Stewart tossed in a career-high 24 points and grabbed seven rebounds for the Fighting Hawks (3-3). Geno Crandall had a double-double - 15 points, 10 rebounds - but he and Stewart were a combined 15-of-46 shooting (32.6 percent). North Dakota shot just 35.3 percent (30 of 85) from the floor and missed 24 of its 30 3-pointers.

Ogbe and Conner Toolson each scored 12 for Utah Valley, which shot 45.5 percent (30 of 66) from the floor. Isaac Neilson and Jake Toolson grabbed 11 and 10 rebounds, respectively.

Utah Valley's only two losses this season were on the road to No. 8 Kentucky and top-ranked Duke on back-to-back nights.
