FARGO, N.D. -- Marshall Bjorklund scored 14 points and grabbed eight rebounds, and North Dakota State rode a late-game run to a 63-56 victory over Utah Valley in a nonconference matchup Tuesday night.

Nate Zastrow, TrayVonn Wright and Kory Brown added 10 points apiece for the Bison (21-8), and leading scorer Taylor Braun played 18 scoreless minutes in his first game since breaking a bone in his foot against Oakland in mid-January.

Ben Aird had 25 points and Holton Hunsaker 15 for the Wolverines (13-16), who tied the game at 48 on Aird's free throws with 8:37 to play. Zastrow, a senior playing in his final home game, then made a 3-pointer and two free throws to power a 7-0 run that put the Bison ahead for good.

NDSU is one game behind South Dakota State in the Summit League standings. Both teams close their regular seasons at Nebraska-Omaha this week.
