SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - Alize Johnson scored 17 points and hauled in 10 rebounds to lead Missouri State to a 64-50 win over North Dakota State on Sunday.

Dequon Miller added 12 points and Ronnie Rousseau III had 10 for Missouri State (4-1). The Bears sealed it at the free throw line, getting 13 of 18 to North Dakota State’s season-low 1 of 4.

Missouri State took control with a 15-0 run that made it 17-4 with 12:25 still to go before intermission. Johnson got two layups and a 3-pointer to ignite the run.

In the second half, NDSU (5-2) pulled to within 10 when Paul Miller’s jumper made it 50-40 with 11:14 left. But the Bears got a 3-pointer from Jarred Dixon at the other end and continued to protect the double-digit advantage the rest of the way.

The Bison got 19 points from Khy Kabellis and Miller finished with nine.
