(AP) — Carrick Felix hit a 23-footer at the buzzer to give Arizona State a 60-57 win over North Dakota State on Saturday.

The Bison (7-2) had tied it on Mike Felt's 3-pointer with 1.8 seconds left after the Sun Devils (4-5) missed two free throws in the final 25 seconds.

Felix scored 15 points and Kyle Cain added 14 points and 13 rebounds for Arizona State.

Trailing 55-54, TrayVonn Wright missed a layup with 31 seconds left for North Dakota State and Trent Lockett made one of two foul shots for the Sun Devils. Cain missed one of two free throws with 14 seconds remaining.

North Dakota State rallied from a six-point deficit in the second half to take a 54-53 lead with 2:27 left on Taylor Braun's layup after two misses under the basket.

Braun led the Bison with 16 points.

The Sun Devils overcame a nearly 4½-minute scoreless drought in the second half against the Bison, who lost for the second time in three games, all on the road. North Dakota State had started the season 6-0.

Arizona State's drought extended to more than six minutes without a field goal, but North Dakota State missed 12 of its first 13 shots after the intermission and couldn't take advantage. Arizona State led 38-36 before Trent Lockett's layup ended the Sun Devils' basket-less stretch.

And when Keala King converted a 3-point play with 7:59 remaining, Arizona State led 46-40.

North Dakota State has not beaten a Pac-12 team in three tries since it began playing Division I in 2004.
