VERMILLION, S.D.--Trey Norris scored 20 points and the South Dakota Coyotes withstood a furious second-half rally to beat Cal State Northridge, 76-75 on Thursday night.
The win stopped a six-game losing streak for the Yotes.
USD led by 12 at halftime, but the Matadors went on a 15-2 run early in the second to take the lead.
The visitors led by as many 8 before USD took the lead with just 12 seconds remaining on a Norris free throw.
The Coyotes improve to 4-9 on the year. They host Iowa Wesleyan on Saturday.
