LOGAN, Utah (AP) — Paul Miller scored 17 points and North Dakota State knocked down six second-half 3-pointers to win the opening game of the Global Sports Tournament at Utah State Monday, knocking off Idaho State, 67-62.

Ethan Telfair's two free throws with no time left in the first half sent the Bengals into the locker room with a six-point lead, 33-27, and pushed it to eight on Ben Wilson's layup to start the second half. But Dylan Miller got to the basket for a layup and Paul Miller added a 3-pointer to get the Bison (8-3) untracked. Miller hit another 3 to give North Dakota State a 51-47 lead that was extended by 3-pointers from A.J. Jacobson and Khy Kabellis.

Ali Faruq-Bey scored 14 points and Geno Luzcando and Telfair each added 13 points for Idaho State (3-6).

Idaho State plays host Utah State Tuesday; North Dakota State plays Texas-Rio Grande Valley.
