S. Dakota St. rallies to beat ORU in Summit League tourney

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) Mike Daum grabbed an offensive rebound, was fouled and made two free throws with 42 seconds left to give South Dakota State just enough cushion to beat Oral Roberts 73-70 in the quarterfinals of the Summit League Tournament on Saturday night.

Oral Roberts, which led for most of the second half, was up 70-65 with 1:24 remaining when George Marshall nailed a 3 and made a free throw to close to 70-69 with 45 seconds left. Daum, who finished with 26 points, made two free throws for the lead, and Deondre Parks and Reed Tellinghuisen added one apiece to seal the victory.

The Jackrabbits (23-7) scored 10 points in the final 2:00 while holding the Golden Eagles scoreless.

South Dakota State, the No. 2 seed, will play the Nebraska-Omaha-Denver winner in the semifinals.

Obi Emegano had 15 points and Kris Martin added 13 for ORU (14-16).
