South Dakota State 94, Manitoba 60

The Jackrabbits took the game over with a 16-3 run midway through the second quarter and then turned the game into a rout with a 22-9 flurry to lead by 26 in the third in capturing their second straight victory over a Winnipeg-based CIS team, defeating Manitoba Bisons.  Eric Garcia led Manitoba with 12 points, going 4-9 from three point land, part of an 8 for 28 effort by the Bisons from outside the arc.  Manitoba turned the ball over 26 times on the evening and did not take a single free throw all evening.  Sean Maxwell added 11 points for the Bisons, who trailed 50-37 early in the third quarter but gave up a big run to end the quarter and SDSU never looked back.  Touted 6'4" freshman Keith Omoerah had 2 points for Manitoba.  SDSU is off on Wednesday before resuming their series in Canada against Winnipeg Wesmen at the Duckworth Center.
