South Dakota State 71, North Dakota 70
BROOKINGS, S.D. (AP) - For the second time in 12 days, Chad White hit a 3-pointer with two seconds remaining to give South Dakota State a victory as the Jackrabbits defeated North Dakota 71-70 on Wednesday night.
South Dakota State (5-2) trailed by four points with just over a minute remaining, but Tony Fiegen's layup got it with a basket, and White's shot from behind the arc was the difference -- repeating his feat from Nov. 17 in a 78-77 win against Marshall in the 2K Sports Classic in Hempstead, N.Y.
White finished with nine points on three 3-pointers, and Jordan Dykstra and Nate Wolters had 21 points each for the Jackrabbits. Wolters had five rebounds, six assists and five steals.
Josh Schuler scored 13 points and Jamal Webb and Mitch Wilmer had 11 each for North Dakota(1-4).
In a game featuring eight ties and 14 lead changes, Webb missed the front end of a one-and-one for North Dakota with 12 seconds left, and South Dakota State moved the ball to its end, where Brayden Carlson's pass set up White's shot.

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Freshman Kendall Knorr scored 15 points as Navy pulled away from Fort Wayne 54-49 Wednesday night.
