    VERMILLION, S.D. -- Louie Krogman scored 22 points and made five 3-pointers, and South Dakota survived a furious comeback by South Dakota State in a 72-68 victory on Thursday night.

    Charlie Westbrook had 18 points and Steve Tecker 11 for the Coyotes (9-14, 4-10 Summit League), who had a 19-point lead midway through the second half.

    Nate Wolters scored 27 points and Chad White 17 for the Jackrabbits (19-7, 11-3), who made 10 3-pointers in the second half after going 0 for 8 from behind the arc in the first 20 minutes.

    South Dakota hit eight 3-pointers in an 11:10 span to cut the deficit to 70-68 with 23 seconds remaining. But Wolters missed a potential game-tying 3-point attempt, and the Jackrabbits twice missed the front end of a one-and-one in the final seconds, helping South Dakota hold on.

    The Coyotes shot 55.8 percent (29 of 52) from the floor.
