LOGAN, UT —  A three-pointer by Devyn Christensen with 10 seconds left lifted Utah State past South Dakota 70-69 on Thursday at the Dee Glen Smith Spectrum.

Christensen’s trey capped off a 19-4 Aggie (3-8) run over the last 5:27.  She scored 11 of her 25 points during that span.  Jenna Johnson added 16 points to USU’s total, while Jennifer Schlott tallied 12 points.

South Dakota (5-7) lost despite a record setting 32 offensive rebounds and holding a 63-26 advantage in total rebounds.  USD did not grab the rebound off a missed three-pointer by Christensen with 23 seconds left, which set up the game winning basket moments later.

Tempestt Wilson scored a season-high 18 points for the Coyotes, while Nicole Seekamp added 14 points.  Margaret McCloud recorded her second-straight double-double with 16 points and 10 rebounds, while Lisa Loeffler grabbed a career-high 10 rebounds and added six points.  Alexis Yackley had a season-high 11 assists.

The Coyotes led by 14 points with 6:47 left in the game, but Utah State shot 8-for-11 the rest of the way and held USD to one basket over the last five minutes.  The lone basket was a Wilson three-pointer with 2:27 remaining to make it 69-65.

South Dakota will next play at Boise State (5-5) on Saturday at 1 p.m.
