LOGAN, Utah (AP) — Deondre Parks knocked down a jumper and a 3-pointer back-to-back in overtime to lift South Dakota State to a 68-65 win at Utah State in the World Vision Classic Saturday night.

Zach Horstman knocked down a 3 with 5:45 left in the second half to give South Dakota State a 61-46 lead, but the Jackrabbits did not score again in the half and Utah State scrambled back to tie the game at 61-61 on Darius Perkins' jumper. South Dakota State was 0 for 6 in that final stretch in regulation, including a missed tip-in by Jake Bittle with a second left.

Parks finished with 17 points and Cody Larson added 16 to lead the Jackrabbits (9-3), who shot 37.3 percent from the field (25 of 67).

David Collette had 19 points to lead Utah State (6-5), with Jalen Moore adding 14. The Aggies shot 38.2 percent (21 of 55).

The loss marks the first time Utah State has lost in its own holiday tournament in Logan since 1971.
