(Thursday, February 13th)

Final Score: North Dakota State 56, Western Illinois 52

Macomb, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - Taylor Braun notched a game-high 19 points for the North Dakota State Bison, who bested the Western Illinois Leathernecks, 56-52, in Summit League play at Western Hall.

Lawrence Alexander tallied 14 points for the Bison (19-6, 8-2 Summit), who have won three in a row. Marshall Bjorklund followed with 12 points as he shot a perfect 4-of-4 from the floor and the same at the free-throw line.

Jabari Sandifer had 13 points and six assists for the Leathernecks (9-15, 3-6), who dropped their third straight. Adam Link also netted 13 points in the loss.

The teams were evenly matched in the first half, with the Leathernecks shooting 41.7 percent from the floor to the Bison's 37.9 percent. The Bison were able to hit one more field goal, though, and claimed a 28-26 halftime lead.

In the second half, the Bison converted 43.8 percent from the floor as their opponent was almost dead even at 43.5 percent. NDSU's 14-of-16 at the free- throw line was the real difference-maker, as the hosts got to the line just nine times and converted four attempts.
