WATCH: Bison women's hoops fall at home, while NDSU men earn first win of 2022

Heaven Hamling scores a season high five three-pointers, but it wouldn't be enough as NDSU falls to Omaha.

FARGO— Heartbreak didn't hold down North Dakota State men's basketball down for long.

The Bison outlasted Omaha on the road, 71-67. NDSU used a 16-6 run late in the second half to take the lead for good. Rocky Kreuser led all scorers with a season high 25 points, while Tyree Eady followed with 14 points.

NDSU goes back on the road on Monday night against Denver in a game rescheduled from last Thursday.

The Bison women couldn't follow up on a sweep of the Mavericks, falling at home 68-54. Omaha shot 51% from the field, led by Grace Cave with 25 points. Heaven Hamling scored 19 to lead NDSU, which shot just 34.7% and were down as many as 21 points in the first half. The Bison cut it down to 9 in the fourth quarter, but could get no closer.

It's back to the road for Jory Collins' group, who take on St. Thomas for the first time as a Summit League opponent next Thursday.
