FORT WAYNE, Ind. -- Marcus DeBerry had a career-high 23 points and Purdue Fort Wayne beat North Dakota 72-68 on Thursday night.
DeBerry made 7 of 8 3-pointers. He's the first Mastodon to make seven in a game since Mo Evans did it against Division III-member Olivet on Jan. 9, 2017. The Mastodons were 15 of 29 from distance.
Carl's jumper with 11:50 before halftime broke a 9-9 tie, started a 13-3 run and the Mastodons never trailed again.
The two teams split their season series.
