NCAA Game Summary - Denver at South Dakota



(Saturday, January 11th)

Final Score: South Dakota 59, Denver 54

Vermillion, SD (SportsNetwork.com) - Trevor Gruis registered a double-double with 19 points and 10 rebounds as the South Dakota Coyotes posted a 59-54 win over the Denver Pioneers in Summit League play at the DakotaDome.

Also scoring in double figures for the Coyotes (6-9, 1-0 Summit) was Brandon Bos with 15 points as the team posted a third straight win.

Brett Olson tallied a game-high 22 points on 4-of-6 shooting behind the 3- point line for the Pioneers (7-9, 0-1), followed by Chris Udofia with 10 points and a team-best six rebounds as the squad bowed for the third time in four outings.

Shooting a sizzling 63.2 percent from the field in the first half, South Dakota should have produced a significant lead at the break, but the team was ahead by a score of just 34-31 after Denver made good on 50 percent from the field.

In the second half the advantage for the Coyotes was stretched to 11 with just under 12 minutes remaining, thanks in large part to a defense that limited the visitors to a woeful 6-of-23 from the floor and 1-of-10 shooting beyond the arc over the final 20 minutes of action.

In a game that featured seven ties and four lead changes, South Dakota survived 15 turnovers by building a 29-21 rebounding advantage.
