FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Khy Kabellis scored 21 points, A.J. Jacobson had 20, including the clinching free throw with 5.6 seconds left, and North Dakota State edged IUPUI 93-89 on Thursday night.

Paul Miller added 18 for the Bison (11-5, 3-0 Summit) and Dexter Werner had 15.

IUPUI took its last lead, 76-75 on a 3-point play by Kellon Thomas with 6:51. Kabellis, who matched his career high, quickly answered for the Bison, who never trailed after that but were never up by more than five.

The Jaguars made it 90-87 on two free throws by Darell Combs with 36 seconds to play but Kabellis and Jacobson each made 1 of 2 free throws around an IUPUI miss. T.J. Henderson’s layup made it 92-89 before Jacobson made the second of two free throws.

Thomas scored 21 points for the Jags (7-9, 1-1), who shot 30 percent in the second half to 56 percent for the Bison.
