VERMILLION, S.D - Senior Charlie Westbrook had 21 points to lead five South Dakota players in double figures as the Coyote men’s basketball team rolled to a 103-63 win over Peru State in nonconference action Wednesday night in Vermillion, S.D. With the win, South Dakota improved to 5-6 on the year.


Westbrook (Milwaukee, Wis.) hit 7-of-12 field goal attempts and was a perfect 6-of-6 from the free-throw line in tying a season-high with 21 points. Junior Jordan Boots (Vermillion, S.D.) added a season-high 19 points on 7-of-10 shooting, while freshman Brandon Bos (Markham, Ontario) had a career-high 15 points. Senior Ricardo Andreotti (Sao Paulo, Brazil) added a double-double with 14 points and 12 rebounds, while senior Louie Krogman (White River, S.D.) had 13 points.


Sophomore Steve Tecker (Brule, Wis.) had six assists, while Bos and Krogman had five each. Westbrook had three steals while Andreotti added five blocks.


The Coyotes trailed 10-9 early but grabbed the momentum four minutes into the contest.  They went on a 10-0 run – keyed by five points from junior Allen Saint-Gelais (Guadeloupe, France), a three by Boots and a dunk by sophomore Steve Tecker (Brule, Wis.) – to take a 19-10 lead with 13:44 left in the game.


Peru State closed the margin briefly to 21-14, but the Coyotes scored 17 of the next 21 points to push the lead to 38-18 with 6:27 left in the half. Tecker had five points during that stretch while Westbrook had four. Bos and Krogman each added threes.


South Dakota enjoyed a red-hot shooting first half from the field, as the Coyotes hit 20-of-29 field goal attempts (69 percent) in the opening half on their way to a 60-32 halftime advantage. South Dakota hit 9-of-13 (69.2 percent) from three-point range in the opening half.  It was a season-high for points and shooting in a half for the Coyotes.


Westbrook led the Coyotes with 13 first-half points, while Krogman had 10 and Jordan Boots nine.  Eight different Coyotes scored in the opening half.


South Dakota was never seriously threatened in the second half. Peru State cut the lead to 64-43 at one point, but the Coyotes went on a 19-4 run from there and cruised to the 40-point win.


Tecker and Saint-Gelais each finished with seven points. Krogman had five rebounds.
