John Konchar drove left off Holba’s screen and dished it back to Holba who was open at the top of the key after the pick-and-pop. The Mastodons’ go-ahead basket came after the Vikings erased a 12-point deficit over the final six minutes.
Purdue Fort Wayne (4-4) never trailed in the second half and led 77-68 on Dylan Carl’s layup with 2:40 left. Cleveland State (2-5) went on an 11-2 run with a pair of 3-pointers in the final minute, tying it at 79 on Stefan Kenic’s 3-pointer with 16 seconds left.
Kason Harrell added 18 points on 9-of-14 shooting and Konchar had 11 points, six rebounds and six assists.
