GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) Geno Crandall scored North Dakota's only two baskets in the final eight minutes, but his second one with 17 seconds left was enough to give the Fighting Hawks a 61-57 victory over Southern Utah in a Big Sky Conference clash Thursday night.

North Dakota (9-17, 4-10) struggled in the first half, shooting just 8-for-28 from the field, and trailed the Thunderbirds at the break, 33-27. The Hawks warmed up in the second half, hitting 12 of 22 from the floor (54.5 percent) and finished hitting 20 of 50.
