The Mad Ants used a 17-2 run over the last 4:15 of the second quarter to take a 53-46 halftime lead over Dakota on Tuesday at Memorial Coliseum.
Trailing 44-36, the Ants scored 15 unanswered points, then traded baskets with Dakota inside the final minute.
Ants forward Ramon Harris, whose six three-point shots led to 20 points in the team's overtime win over Dakota on Sunday, was helped off the floor with 6:27 left in the half when he went in for a layup, was fouled, and fell to the floor directly beneath the basket.
He was on the floor for several minutes, but rose to his knees and helped from the floor.
Walker Russell Jr. leads the Ants with 14 points and eight assists. Darnell Lazare and Cam Jones have 10 points each for the Ants.
