FORT WAYNE, Ind. — Trey Burch-Manning, Tyler Hagedorn and Tyler Peterson each scored 12 points, as South Dakota won its first Summit League road game of the season, downing Fort Wayne, 68-58 on Thursday night.

Hagedorn grabbed 11 rebounds to lead South Dakota (15-5, 3-1) while Burch-Manning and Peterson combined to grab another 15. Matt Mooney, who came into the contest averaging 19 points per game through three conference games, finished with 10. Bryson Scott scored 26 points to lead Fort Wayne (12-8, 1-2) and is 12 shy of 1,000 career points.
