SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Taylor Braun made a key layup while being fouled with 12 seconds left and added the free throw to lead North Dakota State to a 60-57 win over Indiana-Purdue-Fort Wayne for the Summit League title on Tuesday and the Bison's second trip to the NCAA tournament.
North Dakota State (25-6) last earned a berth to the NCAA tournament in 2009 during its first year of Division I postseason eligibility, but lost in the opening round to Kansas 84-74.
TrayVonn Wright led the Bison with 19 points on a mixture of dunks, layups and jumpers, and Braun added 15 points.
Pierre Bland, Luis Jacobo and Michael Kibiloski each scored nine points for IPFW (24-10) in its first Summit League title game.
