Second-year freshman Maddie Krull scored 15 points for the second-straight game. She was 5-of-9 from the floor with a pair of assists, a block and a steal.

The Coyote defense held St. Thomas (6-12, 3-5 Summit) to 12 points or fewer in all four quarters and to a season-low scoring output of 43 points. No Tommie player reached double-figures.

South Dakota shot 46 percent (29-of-63) from the floor. St. Thomas made 32.6 percent (15-of-46) from the field. South Dakota edged St. Thomas out on the glass, outrebounding the Tommies 37-29. Senior Hannah Sjerven and freshman Grace Larkins both grabbed seven apiece.
