CLEVELAND (AP) — Matt Holba scored a career-high 21 and made the game-winning 3-pointer with 0.7 seconds left to give Purdue Fort Wayne an 82-79 win over Cleveland State on Sunday.

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.

Seth Millner had his first career double-double, setting personal bests with 22 points and 10 rebounds. Tyree Appleby had 20 points and eight assists and Jaalam Hill added 10 points.
