CHENEY, Wash. (AP) - Aaron Anderson scored 17 points and Troy Huff added 15 with nine rebounds as North Dakota defeated Eastern Washington 73-61 Thursday night.

North Dakota (9-10, 6-3 Big Sky) shot 46.7 percent from the field and outscored EWU 18-0 on fast breaks. Alonzo Taylor and Jaron Nash each chipped in 11 points for North Dakota.

Venky Jois scored 15 points for the Eagles (8-12, 3-6), Ognjen Miljkovic had 14 and Drew Brandon contributed 11 with 13 rebounds. Tyler Harvey, the Big Sky's leading scorer, was held to 7 points on 3-of-12 shooting.

North Dakota led by eight early in the second half, but EWU used a 9-0 surge capped by a Harvey 3-pointer to grab a 45-44 lead. Huff responded, hitting two layups and converting a three-point play to spark a 19-4 run and make it 63-49 with 4:14 remaining.

EWU couldn't pull closer than 12 the rest of the way.
