Sioux Falls, S.D. (Feb. 7, 2012) – The Dakota Wizards defeated the Sioux Falls Skyforce 112-103 Tuesday night at the Sioux Falls Arena. Dakota did most of their damage in transition as they outscored Sioux Falls 84-36 in the paint.

Tied at 70 with less than four minutes left in the third, Dakota went on a 12-0 run to take an 82-70 lead and never looked back after that. They pushed the lead to as many as 21 points in the final quarter and handed Sioux Falls their sixth straight loss.
