Shahid leads NDSU past Omaha 73-63 in Summit League final

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) Vinnie Shahid heeded his teammates' advice after a rough first half, and helped lead North Dakota State back to the NCAA Tournament.

Shahid scored 20 of his 22 points after halftime, and the Bison beat Omaha 73-63 on Tuesday night in the Summit League Tournament title game to earn their first NCAA Tournament bid since 2015.

"My teammates did a good job of giving me confidence," said Shahid, who was 1-of-4 shooting before the half. "They told me, `Keep being aggressive, keep being aggressive. It's going to fall when we need it to.'"
