Recap: South Dakota vs. Nebraska Omaha

Vermillion, SD (Sports Network) - Led by 26 points from Justin Simmons, the Nebraska Omaha Mavericks took down the South Dakota Coyotes, 95-90, in a Summit League showdown at the DakotaDome.

Alex Welhouse and C.J. Carter each added 17 points for the Mavericks (6-16, 3-6 Summit), while John Karhoff and Caleb Steffensmeier each finished with 14 points. Welhouse also pulled down a team-best nine rebounds.

For the Coyotes (8-13, 4-5), Juevol Myles led the way with 26 points, while Brandon Bos tallied 16 points, eight rebounds, and five assists in 40 minutes of action. Steve Tecker scored 14 points, Trevor Gruis chipped in with 13 points, and they both grabbed nine boards.

Omaha shot the ball well in the first half, connecting on 54.8 percent of their field goal tries, including 7-of-16 from beyond the 3-point arc, as they took a slim, 43-41, lead at halftime. South Dakota kept it close by draining 6-of-12 from 3-point range, part of a 44.1 percent shooting performance in the first half.

After the break, the Mavericks continued to have the hot hand, making 57.6 percent of their field goal tries, including 6-of-10 from 3-point distance. Staying on their heels, the Coyotes hit on 47.4 percent of their field goal attempts and 5-of-12 from 3-point range.
