VERMILLION, S.D. (AP) - Mike Daum scored a career high-tying 23 points, Jake Bittle added 21, and Scott Nagy earned his 400th career victory as South Dakota State outlasted South Dakota 79-75 on Saturday.

Daum added 11 rebounds to notch his second career double-double for South Dakota State (16-5, 5-2 Summit League). He went 4 of 4 on 3-point attempts - all in the second half - as the Jackrabbits scored 51 points in the second compared to a 28-point first-half output.

His last make put South Dakota State up by five with 2:11 left.

Bittle’s eight free-throw makes and 11 attempts were both career highs.

South Dakota (10-11, 2-5) got within three with 25 seconds left, but Trey Norris missed two field goals in the final 15 seconds and the Coyotes couldn’t take advantage when SDSU’s George Marshall stepped on the sideline with the ball with 10 seconds left.

Norris scored 12 points and had five assists.
