BROOKINGS, S.D. (AP) Nate Wolters scored 26 points and grabbed seven rebounds, helping South Dakota State rally past North Dakota State in the second half Saturday for a 69-53 victory.

The St. Cloud Tech graduate, who became the first SDSU player to score 2,000 career points in a 59-53 win at Western Illinois on Thursday, was 7 of 16 from the floor, including three 3-pointers. Tony Fiegen and Jordan Dykstra added 14 points apiece for the Jackrabbits (16-6, 7-2 Summit League), and Dykstra now is six points shy of 1,000 for his career.

TrayVonn Wright had 16 points and Marshall Bjorklund pulled down 13 rebounds for the Bison (16-5, 7-2), who lost their second in a row following an eight-game winning streak.

NDSU led 37-31 at halftime but went cold in the second half, shooting 25 percent from the floor as SDSU outscored the Bison 38-16. The Jackrabbits shot 57 percent in the second half in Brookings.
