Bookmark and Share

VERMILLION, S.D.—Juevol Myles scored a career-high 32 points and South Dakota made a program-record 43 free throws in an 85-75 win against Morehead State Wednesday night at the DakotaDome. The Coyotes snapped a three-game skid and improved to 5-7. The Eagles fell to 5-6.

 

Morehead State had committed more fouls than any other program through 10 games. The Eagles added 32 infractions Wednesday which resulted in 50 free-throw attempts for South Dakota. Myles, the leading free-throw shooter in the Summit League, was 15 of 16 from the line for the second consecutive game. Teammate Karim Rowson was 11 of 14 and totaled 17 points.

 

Maurice Lewis-Briggs scored 24 points and had 13 rebounds to lead Morehead State. The Eagles made nine of their 11 three-pointers in the second half to stay close, but couldn’t overcome a 40-31 halftime deficit. Chad Posthumus scored 13 points and Angelo Warner added 11 for the Eagles.

 

Steve Tecker scored seven points during a 17-3 South Dakota run midway through the first half that turned a 16-8 deficit into a 25-19 lead. The Coyotes led the rest of the way. Tecker scored 11 points off the USD bench.

 

Morehead State’s first six field goals in the second half were three-pointers. Lewis-Briggs made three of them during the stretch to bring the Eagles within three at 52-49 with 12 minutes to go.  Morehead State was 11 of 26 from behind the arc (42 percent) and 17 of 48 from inside it (35 percent).

 

USD guard Brandon Bos converted a three-point play and shortly thereafter hit a 3-pointer to push the lead back to eight points at 61-53. Bos had 12 points and six rebounds in making his second consecutive start.

 

Myles, who was a game-time decision Wednesday after sustaining a lower back injury Saturday, hit three second-half treys and scored 19 second-half points. He played from start to finish for the first time this season.

 

South Dakota played its final home game of the 2012 calendar year. The team will travel to Green Bay Saturday before taking a week off from competition for the holidays.
