Four North Dakota State players scored in double figures Wednesday and the Bison rebounded from a Tuesday loss to UAA with a 61-56 women's basketball win over Prairie View A&M at Sullivan Arena.

That earned the Bison third place in the Carrs/Safeway Great Alaska Shootout.

With the score tied 50-50 with 4 minutes, 48 seconds remaining, North Dakota State (3-3) took the lead for good on a 3-pointer from Hannah Linz.

Holly Johnson led the Bison with 14 points, Katie Birkel scored 13, Dani DeGagne hit for 12 and Linz finished with 10.

Prairie View A&M (0-4) got a game-high 20 points from Latia Williams and 11 points from Kiara Etienne, who buried three treys.

After Birkel put the Bison up five with a jump shot at the 1:33 mark, Williams made two consecutive trips to the free-throw line, but missed two of her four attempts and only managed to cut the lead to three.

Still down three, Prairie View regained possession and called a timeout with 35.9 seconds left, setting up a 3-point attempt for Etienne. When her shot missed, North Dakota grabbed the rebound and Birkel was sent to foul line where she sealed the win with a pair of free throws.

North Dakota state won the rebound battle 26-25 and the turnover battle 18-19. The Bison shot 44.7 percent from the field, compared to Prairie View A&M's 43.5 percent. North Dakota only missed one free throw, burying 13 of 14.

Prairie View was coming off a one-point loss to Utah State on Tuesday.
