Miller helps IUPUI edge North Dakota State 73-72

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Jordan Pickett nailed a 3-pointer with two seconds left to lift IUPUI over North Dakota State 73-72 on Sunday.

After NDSU's Dexter Warner made 1 of 2 from the line, the Jaguars ran a play for Marcellus Barksdale to drive the lane. He was cut off and dished to Pickett on the left wing, who stepped back into 3-point range and made the jumper. Paul Miller's last-ditch heave was off the mark.

North Dakota State led by 10 after Miller's 3 with 8:38 to go, but IUPUI used a 12-point run to get back in it.

Pickett led IUPUI (11-13, 7-2 Summit) with 20 points. Darell Combs scored 17 points, Matt O'Leary had 12 points with seven rebounds and Barksdale ended with 10.

North Dakota State (14-8, 4-4 Summit) was led by Miller with 21 points. Khy Kabellis scored 12 points and A.J. Jacobson added 11.
