USD Men Fall Flat From Long Range
The Kansas City 'Roos took a page out of the University of South Dakota's playbook, beating the Coyotes at their own three-point game to complete a season sweep, 80-65 in Kansas City Saturday.
UMKC hit half (12) of their 24 attempts from behind the three-point arc to outscore USD by 24 from long range to extend the Coyotes losing streak to four games. South Dakota was the most accurate three-point shooting in the Summit League coming in, hitting 43 percent from the three-point arc, but Saturday the Coyotes were just four-of-16 from long range in the game.
Nate Rogers hit five three's for UMKC as part of his 17 points. Fred Chatmon led the 'Roos with 20 points on seven-of-eight shooting. Trevor Gruis had 17 points and five rebounds to lead USD.
South Dakota (8-16/4-8) is back home next week hosting Oakland Thursday and Fort Wayne Saturday.
