South Dakota beats IUPUI 92-85, wins Summit League title
The Associated Press - February 27, 2017

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Matt Mooney scored 27 points and South Dakota held off IUPUI's late rally for a 92-85 victory and the Summit League regular season title on Saturday night.

South Dakota (21-10, 12-4) has won six straight, and grabbed the title outright and the No. 1 seed into the league tournament when North Dakota State lost to Omaha 96-92.

The Coyotes had a 10-point lead with about three minutes left before IUPUI used an 8-1 spurt to pull to 80-77. Mooney missed a deep 3-pointer, but the Coyotes kept possession when Carlton Hurst grabbed the rebound with 1:08 to play. Triston Simpson, who finished with 14 points, all from the free-throw line, scored eight points and Mooney added four more free throws in the final minute to seal it.

IUPUI (13-17, 7-9) will be the sixth or seventh seed into the league tournament.

Darell Combs scored 19 points and Matt O'Leary had 18 for IUPUI, and both topped 1,000 points for their careers.
