    BROOKINGS, S.D. -- Brayden Carlson scored 22 points and Jordan Dykstra added 19 as South Dakota State defeated Denver 78-69 on Thursday night.

    Dykstra, in grabbing eight rebounds, became the third Jackrabbit in SDSU history to surpass 1,500 points and 800 rebounds in his career.

    Cody Larson added 16 points for SDSU (17-11, 9-4 Summit League) while Chad White added 11 points and Jake Bittle a career-high 11 rebounds.

    The Pioneers (15-13, 8-5) got 18 points from Jalen Love and 10 from Marcus Byrd. Brett Olson, with nine points, went over 1,000 for his career.

    A 7-0 spurt put SDSU up nine, 57-48, with 8 minutes left. Denver would get within six, but no closer.

    The Jackrabbits made 24 of 32 free throws with Dykstra and Carson each making 9 of 10. Denver made 5 of 8.

    SDSU is tied with IPFW for second place with one regular-season game remaining.
