Vermillion, SD (SportsNetwork.com) - Karim Rowson scored just 11 points, yet he was the leading scorer for South Dakota as the Coyotes claimed a 64-54 win over the Western Illinois Leathernecks in Summit League action at the DakotaDome.

Also scoring in double figures for the Coyotes (12-15, 6-6 Summit) was Tyler Larson with 10 points, to go along with his six rebounds for a team that has won three straight.

The Leathernecks (9-18, 3-9) were paced by Garret Covington with 19 points and eight rebounds, followed by Jabari Sandifer and Michael Ochereobia with 12 and 10 points, respectively, as the team suffered a sixth straight setback.
