    Wilmer had 11 points, grabbed 14 rebounds and Aaron Anderson scored 14 for North Dakota(16-15), which shot 65.2 percent from the floor in the second half including a 7 for 11 mark from beyond the arc to put the Thunderbirds away for good.

    Lenny Antwi and Josh Schuler added 10 points apiece for North Dakota.

    Sixth-seeded Southern Utah (11-20) shot a dismal 28.8 percent from the field and was 5 of 19 from 3-point range. Jackson Stevenett scored 15 points to lead the Thunderbirds.
