SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Summit League player of the year Macy Miller had 16 points, 11 rebounds, four assists and three steals and South Dakota State snapped rival South Dakota's 20-game winning streak with a 65-50 victory on Tuesday for its eighth automatic NCAA Tournament bid in 10 seasons.
SDSU lost both regular-season matchups this season by six points or fewer but remained undefeated against South Dakota in the Summit championship game at 4-0.
Ellie Thompson added 14 points and Tagyn Larson chipped in with 13 for South Dakoka State (26-6).
South Dakota (26-6) was the second team in Summit League history to go undefeated in conference play - the first in 24 years.
