ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. (AP) - Charlon Kloof led four teammates in double figures with 16 points, and St. Bonaventure defeated South Dakota 68-46 on Saturday night.
The Coyotes, trailing 31-21, opened the second half with a 9-4 run to cut the lead to 35-30. But the Bonnies responded with a 22-9 run to lead 57-39.
