Fort Wayne Purdue downs N. Dakota in Summit opener

GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) Kason Harrell scored 22 points, John Konchar added 18 and grabbed 12 rebounds, and Purdue Fort Wayne never trailed in beating North Dakota 84-73 on Saturday in the Fighting Hawks' Summit League debut that was postponed from Friday due to hazardous winter weather.

Matt Holba scored 13 points with three 3-pointers, Dylan Carl added 12 points with eight rebounds and Dee Montgomery scored 10 for the Mastodons (9-7, 1-0), who held the Fighting Hawks to 39 percent shooting to win their third straight.

Leading 46-30 at halftime, Carl scored four straight for a 50-32 Mastodons' lead early in the second half, but North Dakota closed to within 69-63 with 4:05 to play on a 6-2 run capped by Marlon Stewart's layup. Konchar scored four in a 10-2 run for a 79-65 lead and Matt Weir iced it with five free throws in the final 49 seconds.

Aanen Moody hit six 3-pointers and scored a career-high 21 points, Stewart scored 18 and grabbed 10 rebounds, and Kienan Walter added 14 points with eight boards for North Dakota (6-8, 0-1), which has lost three straight.

The Fighting Hawks were previously members of the Big Sky and Great West conferences since moving to Division I.
