Deondre Parks and Mike Daum added 10 points apiece for the Jackrabbits (12-3), who pulled away with a 10-0 run to lead 58-46 with 4:06 to play. They led by at least eight the rest of the way.

Marcus Byrd led the Pioneers (8-6) with 16 points. Joe Rosga scored 12 and Nate Engesser added 11. Denver went on a 15-2 run early in the second half to get within 39-38 and stayed as close as 48-46 before the Jacks pulled away.

It was South Dakota State’s 22nd consecutive home win at Frost Arena.
