OMAHA, Neb. (AP)—Taylor Braun scored 22 points and North Dakota State clinched the No. 3 seed in the Summit League tournament with an 84-57 win over Nebraska-Omaha on Saturday.

Marshall Bjorklund added 18 points and TrayVonn Wright had 15 for North Dakota State, which shot 57 percent and outrebounded the Mavericks 45-25.

Marcus Tyus led Nebraska-Omaha (11-20, 6-10) with 10 points.
