Fargo, ND (Sports Network) - Mike Felt scored a game-high 14 points off the
bench as the North Dakota State Bison crushed the Kangaroos of UMKC, 71-34,
in Summit League action at Bison Sports Arena.
Also scoring in double figures for the Bison (17-5, 8-2 Summit) were Marshall
Bjorklund and Kory Brown with 12 points apiece as the team snapped a two-game
The Kangaroos (6-17, 3-7), held to their fewest points ever in a Summit League
bout, failed to have a single player score in double figures as they bowed for
the third time in as many games. Trinity Hall accounted for nine points in 23
minutes of action.
UMKC actually led by three points early on in the meeting, but the squad ended
up converting just 5-of-21 (.238) from the floor in the first half, en route
to a 28-12 halftime deficit. The margin could have easily been greater if not
for the fact that the Bison shot just 1-of-10 behind the 3-point line through
the first 20 minutes of play.
In the second half NDSU continued to pile on with 50.0 percent accuracy from
the field and an improved 5-of-11 effort out on the perimeter.
The Kangaroos were charged with 18 turnovers, against just four assists, and
were dominated on the glass by a massive 43-24 margin.
The defensive effort by NDSU matched the modern era record (since 1950) for
points allowed to a four-year school, the team having given up just 34 points
to Jamestown College during the 2005-06 campaign.
