Summit League college basketball action continues with the North Dakota State Bison facing the Purdue Fort Wayne Mastodons.

The Purdue Fort Wayne Mastodons have won three straight games after downing North Dakota 84-73 on Saturday.

Purdue Fort Wayne jumped to a 16 point lead at the intermission and went in to cruise control over the final 20 minutes. 

John Konchar led a balanced Mastodons offense with 18 points, 13 rebounds and five assists with Kason Harrell tossing in a game high 22 points.

Matt Holba gave PFW 13 points while Dylan Carl and Dee Montgomery netted 12 and ten points respectively.

The North Dakota State Bison are heating up with wins in four of five after upending South Dakota 71-65 as a three point home favorite. 

North Dakota State trailed by nine heading to the locker room before rallying behind a 43-28 second half burst.

Deng Geu carried the Bison attack with a contest high 20 points and four pulls on 9-13 marksmanship while Tyson Ward added 17 points, seven boards and five helpers on 4-11 from the floor and 8-10 at the stripe.

Jordan Horn gave NDSU ten points followed by Rocky Krueser and Vinnie Shahid with eight points apiece.

Over is 17-4 in PFW last 21 road games and PFW are 10-27 ATS in their last 37 road games and over is 36-17 in PFW last 53 vs. Summit. Over is 20-7 in NDSU last 27 home games and NDSU are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 vs. Summit and over is 24-10 in NDSU last 34 vs. Summit. PFW are 16-5 ATS in the last 21 meetings and underdog is 11-5 ATS in the last 16 meetings.

Both teams played on Saturday so North Dakota State should be in better shape since the Mastodons are on the road but I'm going agaist this logic...

Pick:
Purdue Fort Wayne +5

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
