SAN JOSE, Calif.—Points were hard to come by in San Jose State’s 61-52 win against South Dakota Tuesday night inside Event Center Arena.
The Spartans, who improved to 3-3 overall, went more than 10 minutes without a point in the second half, but still led 46-43 with under seven minutes to go and pulled away again late. The home team made 10 3-pointers and got 18 points from Omari Moore to win the first meeting between the two teams since 2017.
Mason Archambault scored a career-high 21 points to pace South Dakota, which fell to 4-3 overall and is still seeking its first road win. Archambault was 8-of-15 from the field including 5-of-9 from downtown. But his teammates combined to make 12-of-40 shots (30 percent) and South Dakota shot just five free throws.
South Dakota returns home to host Waldorf Friday at 7 p.m. inside the Sanford Coyote Sports Center.
