It looked like North Dakota State men's basketball had lost another close game in Summit League play.

A replay showed otherwise. The Bison capitalized on an extra five minutes, outscoring South Dakota 14-2 in overtime for a 74-62 win.

Tied at 60 in the final seconds, Tasos Kamateros hit a three as the horn sounded to put USD up by three. Officials immediately went to review, where it was clear the ball was still in Kamateros' hands when the clock hit zero. NDSU held the Coyotes to just two points the rest of the way.


Sam Griesel put up 20 points in the win while Tyree Eady chipped in 17, including the three in overtime that put NDSU up for good.

Former Bison offensive lineman Cordell Volson has 'huge' opportunity at East-West Shrine Bowl

North Dakota State offensive lineman Cordell Volson has been in the Twin Cities area training the past few weeks, including combine-like preparation to improve things like his agility and 40-yard time.

“It is way different,” said Volson, from Balfour, N.D. “Some of the offensive linemen that I’m training with right now, we talk about we can’t wait to be done with the whole running around thing. We’re good at hitting people and that’s what we enjoy doing and this running around stuff isn’t for us, but we only got to do it once so just be prepared for that.”
