North Dakota State 83, Youngstown State 80 (OT)
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Mike Felt scored 10 of his 24 points in overtime as North Dakota State defeated Youngstown State 83-80 Monday.

Felt, who entered the game averaging 16.3 points per game, was 6 of 14 from the field -- all his makes came from 3-point range -- and knocked down all six of his free throw attempts for the Bison in the sub-regional round of the 2012 Progressive Legends Classic.

After tying the game with a 3-pointer at the buzzer, Youngstown State's Kendrick Perry opened overtime with a jumper as the Penguins pulled ahead 68-64.

The Bison (3-1) rallied -- hitting back-to-back 3-pointers -- to take a 70-68 overtime lead.

Youngstown State (3-1) tied the game at 72-all, but Felt converted two free throws and made a 3-pointer on consecutive possessions to seal the win.

Lawrence Alexander added 17 points for the Bison while Perry led Youngstown State with a career-high 34.
