Freshman guard Anders Nelson finished with 17 points, nine assists, five steals and four rebounds as the Tommies (7-1 overall, 4-0 MIAC) held off a late Concordia bid to win 79-70 in Moorhead.
Coach John Tauer's team closed the first half on an 11-0 run for a 43-30 halftime cushion. Concordia (1-7, 0-4) trimmed a 17-point lead to just six at 69-63 with under 6:00 to go, but the Tommies used Hannah's 3-point basket and Bair's dunk, both assisted by Nelson, to slow the Cobber momentum.
St. Thomas is home Saturday night to face No. 7-ranked UW-Stevens Point.
