FARGO — The North Dakota State men looked destined for another Summit League win on Tuesday.

The Bison led Kansas City 57-43 with 13:08 to play and showed no signs of slowing down. That's when things fell apart for NDSU, giving up a 21-0 run over the next nine minutes to ultimately fall to the Roos 80-77. Rocky Kreuser led the way for all scorers with 27 points, while Sam Griesel put up 23.

Arkel Lamar led the way for KC at 24 points. It's the first time in conference play the Bison have dropped back-to-back games this season.

The NDSU women suffered nearly the same fate. Leading by 10 entering the fourth quarter, the Bison were outscored 25-10 over the final 10 minutes, falling to Kansas City 67-62. Ryan Cobbins and Emily Dietz each put up 17 points. It's NDSU's fifth loss in its last seven games.
