VERMILLION, S.D.—Frank Gaines scored a game-high 22 points on 9 of 13 shooting to lead Fort Wayne to a 64-51 win against South Dakota on senior night at the DakotaDome.

Trevor Gruis scored 10 of his team-leading 12 points during the first nine minutes of the second half. His sixth field goal of the game made it 42-31 with 11 minutes to go. He was 6 of 8 from the field.


Fort Wayne point guard Pierre Bland made back-to-back layups to cap a 6-0 run and the Mastodons stayed in control the rest of the way. The Mastodons earned a 36-29 edge on the boards and turned 10 USD turnovers into 16 points.
