S. Dakota St. 71, North Dakota 70
For the second time in 12 days, Chad White hit a 3-pointer with
two seconds remaining to give South Dakota State a victory as the
Jackrabbits defeated North Dakota 71-70 on Wednesday night.
South Dakota State (5-2) trailed by four points with just over a
minute remaining, but Tony Fiegen’s layup got it with a basket, and
White’s shot from behind the arc was the difference – repeating his
feat from Nov. 17 in a 78-77 win against Marshall in the 2K Sports
Classic in Hempstead, N.Y.
White finished with nine points on three 3-pointers, and Jordan
Dykstra and Nate Wolters had 21 points each for the Jackrabbits.
Wolters had five rebounds, six assists and five steals.
Josh Schuler scored 13 points and Jamal Webb and Mitch Wilmer
had 11 each for North Dakota (1-4).
In a game featuring eight ties and 14 lead changes, Webb missed
the front end of a one-and-one for North Dakota with 12 seconds
left, and South Dakota State moved the ball to its end, where
Brayden Carlson’s pass set up White’s shot.
