GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - Troy Huff scored 14 points including a game-winning jumper at the buzzer as North Dakota beat Eastern Washington 69-67 Saturday.

Jaron Nash led the team in scoring with 21 points and Jamal Webb added 13 for North Dakota (14-14, 11-7 Big Sky).

EWU had a 28-27 advantage at the break but a one-man 6-0 run by Huff to start the second period gave North Dakota a 33-28 lead with 18:58 to play. Two minutes later, Huff struck again from the paint and from distance and Webb and Nash combined for a pair of layups to extend North Dakota’s lead to 41-32. The Eagles came back to tie it, 67-67, on a Tyler Harvey 3-pointer with 16 seconds left but Huff grabbed a rebound after Webb missed a 3 and hit a jumper at the buzzer for the win.

Venky Jois led the Eagles (14-15, 9-9) with 22 points.
