ROCHESTER, Mich. -- Oakland coach Greg Kampe earned his 500th official victory Thursday night when the Golden Grizzlies outlasted North Dakota State 66-63.
Oakland (12-13, 7-4 Summit League) trailed 63-62 when Duke Mondy stole the ball from TrayVonn Wright and drove for the go-ahead basket with 20.2 seconds left. Mike Felt then missed an open 3-pointer for the Bison (18-6, 9-3), and although Wright rebounded, he fell down and was called for traveling.
Mondy made two free throws with 6.4 seconds remaining, and the Golden Grizzlies fouled intentionally to prevent a chance for a tying 3-pointer.
Kampe now has 500 victories according to NCAA records, although Oakland credits him with two more because of forfeits.
