Coyotes Split In Rapid City

Coyotes Split In Rapid City

A pair of University of South Dakota basketball games played in Rapid City Saturday produced a split decision. The Coyote men lost an overtime game after the USD women scored an easy win.

 

.Larry Nance Jr. converted a three-point play with 2.6 seconds left in overtime to lift Wyoming to a 67-66 win against South Dakota in front of more than 3,300 fans inside the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center Saturday. Nance Jr. scored a game-high 25 points for the Cowboys (7-2), who have won six of their last seven.

It was the second meeting between the two programs in the last two weeks, but this one was a better show than the 70-53 Wyoming win in Laramie. This one featured 13 ties and 13 lead changes. The largest lead was 44-37 South Dakota with 12 minutes left in regulation.

Five Coyotes scored in double-figures with Raeshel Contreras’ career-high of 19 points leading the way as the South Dakota women’s basketball team topped the S.D. School of Mines Hardrockers 81-49 in the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center on Saturday night. The win evens USD’s record at 5-5.

Contreras was 4-for-8 eight from beyond the 3-point arc and played in just 16 minutes of the game. Polly Harrington was USD’s second leading scorer and leading rebounder, coming up a rebound shy of her sixth career double-double with 14 points and nine rebounds.
