BROOKINGS, S.D. (AP) - Clint Sargent scored 22 points and made five 3-pointers, and Nate Wolters added 21 points as South Dakota State defeated Southern Utah 96-79 on Saturday night.
Jordan Dykstra had 20 points and Dale Moss 13 points and nine rebounds for the Jackrabbits (14-8, 6-5 Summit League).
Ryan Brimley scored 23 points and made five 3-point shots for the Thunderbirds (6-15, 3-8). Damon Heuir added 18 points, Matt Massey 14 and Jackson Stevenett 12.
The game was part of South Dakota State's 39th annual Pork Classic. Festivities included a pregame barbeque and halftime auctions of a live hog and pork bundles.
The bidding might have provided the most suspense of the night, as Wolters scored nine points in helping the Jackrabbits build a 23-13 lead 8:21 into the game. South Dakota State never led by less than double digits afterward.
