DENVER (AP) - Mike Daum scored 15 points off the bench and South Dakota State completed a regular-season sweep of Denver with a 67-56 victory Saturday.

The Jackrabbits opened the second half of the Summit League the same way they started the first. They beat Denver 68-59 on New Year’s Day. South Dakota State has now won four straight and three straight on the road.

Denver led by one at intermission, 35-24, and Nate Engesser converted a 3-point play with just under 10 minutes to play to give the Pioneers a 47-46 advantage. Ian Theisen hit two free throws to spark an 11-3 run by the Jackrabbits to wrest control and George Marshall hit back-to-back 3-pointers to put the game out of reach.

Marshall finished with 13 points for South Dakota State (18-5, 7-2).

C.J. Bobbitt and Joe Rosga each scored 12 points to lead Denver (11-11, 3-6). Marcus Byrd added 11 points.
