DAVIS, Calif. (AP) Dexter Werner scored the first two baskets of overtime as North Dakota State scored the last 11 points in regulation - and 21 unanswered points all told - rallying to a 79-71 victory at UC Davis on Friday night.
Kory Brown drove into a crowd of defenders to score a layup with three seconds left in regulation, knotting the score at 69-69, capping a 9-2 run and forcing OT. Werner scored on a layup to open the extra period and added a jumper as the Bison (1-0) surged ahead 73-69.
Paul Miller scored 20 points for the Bison.
The Aggies, who won their first Big West championship last season, raised the championship banner during pregame ceremonies.
