SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Dexter Werner scored 18, on 6-of-8 shooting, with 11 rebounds to help No. 5 seed North Dakota State beat fourth-seeded IUPUI 60-45 Sunday in the quarterfinals of the Summit League tournament.

A.J. Jacobson scored 14, Paul Miller added 12 points and Kory Brown grabbed 11 rebounds for North Dakota State, which outrebounded IUPUI 43-36.

The Bison (19-12) will play top-seeded IPFW (24-8) in the semifinals Monday.

T.J. Henderson’s jumper with 16:05 to play gave IUPUI (13-19) a 30-26 lead, but the Jaguars made just three more field goals as NDSU closed the game on a 34-15 run.

IUPUI shot just 29 percent from the field, including 1 of 12 from 3-point range, and its 15 made field goals was a season low.

Henderson led the Jaguars with 11 points on 5-of-9 shooting, while Matt O’Leary had a career-high 12 rebounds.
