SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Tyler Hagedorn scored 19 of his career-high 27 points in the second half and Matt Mooney finished with 18 points to help South Dakota pull away in the second half for a 76-62 win over San Jose State on Sunday.

Hagedorn hit six 3-pointers on eight attempts, both career highs and made 5 of 6 from the free-throw line and Mooney hit four 3s. Trey Burch-Manning and Carlton Hurst added 11 points apiece for South Dakota (11-3).

The Coyotes have won four in a row since a 96-80 loss at Duke on Dec. 2.

Hurst hit two free throws to give South Dakota the lead for good before he and Hagedorn made back-to-back layups to make 46-41 early in the second half. Hagedorn hit 3s about 30 seconds apart to push the lead to nine a couple minutes later and Mooney scored seven consecutive points in an 11-0 run that made it 68-54 with just fewer than five minutes to play.

Brandon Mitchell scored 17 on 6-of-6 shooting for San Jose State (2-8). Ryan Welage added 13 points and Keith Fisher 10 for the Spartans, who have lost five in a row.

South Dakota trailed 26-14 midway through the first half but cut its deficit to 37-33 at the break.
