GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) Cortez Seales scored 14 points, Marlon Stewart and Conner Avants added 13 apiece, and North Dakota snapped an eight-game skid with an 81-58 win over Idaho State on Thursday night.

Dale Jones scored 11 points with three 3-pointers for the Fighting Hawks (5-11, 1-4 Big Sky) who made 10 3-pointers and shot 52.5 percent from the floor in beating the Bengals for the 11th straight time.

Seales' layup on the next possession put the Fighting Hawks up for good and they led 41-29 at halftime after the Bengals didn't make a field goal in the final 6:36.

Seales scored eight points in an 11-1 run for a 52-31 North Dakota lead. Billy Brown hit back-to-back 3s and the Fighting Hawks led by 20 points with 1:15 to play.

Novak Topalovic scored 12 points and Gary Chivichyan added 11 off the bench for the Bengals (8-7, 3-1), who saw their four-game win streak end.
