Charlie Westbrook’s 3-pointer with 28 seconds remaining lifted

South Dakota over Morehead State 57-56 Saturday night after the

Louie Krogman, who assisted on Westbrook’s shot and led the

Coyotes (4-5) with 19 points, had tied the game at 54 on a

with 40 seconds left gave the Eagles (4-7) a 56-54 lead.

After the go-ahead shot by Westbrook, who finished with 10

points, Terrance Hill’s 3-point shot for Morehead State missed at

the buzzer.

South Dakota led 37-24 at halftime and 43-26 after Trevor Gruis’

layup with 17:31 remaining in the game. But the Coyotes didn’t get

another field goal for 10:16, managing only two free throws in that

span, and the Eagles went ahead 51-49 on Hill’s 3-pointer at the

5:01 mark.

Milton Chavis had 14 points and Hill 13 for Morehead State.
