Mar 11, 2010 - 5:17 AM OREM, Utah(AP) -- Chris Flores had 21 points to lead NJIT to a 70-57 victory against North Dakota in a Great West Conference tournament quarterfinal on Wednesday night.

Isaiah Wilkerson added 18 points for the sixth-seeded Highlanders (10-20), who face No. 2 seed Houston Baptist in a semifinal on Friday.

Travis Bledsoe had 19 points and Derek Benter 10 for No. 3-seeded North Dakota (8-23), which led 28-27 at halftime but shot just 8 for 29 (27.6 percent) from the floor in the second half.

Flores hit a 3-pointer to tie the score at 42-42 with 9:54 remaining, starting a 23-8 run over the next 6:47 that gave NJIT control. Sandwiching that spree was another Flores shot from beyond the arc that made the score 62-50.
