Vermillion, SD (SportsNetwork.com) - Trey Norris scored a game-high 20 points and drained the game-winning free throws in the final minute to lift the South Dakota Coyotes to a thrilling 76-75 win over the Cal State Northridge Matadors in non-conference action at the DakotaDome.

The Matadors caught fire at the beginning of the second half, ripping off a 20-4 run to take a four-point lead with 14:15 to play. CSUN continued to lead with under two minutes remaining when Norris hit a 3-pointer for USD to make it just a one-point game, 75-74.
