BROOKINGS, S.D. (AP) - Nate Wolters had game highs of 22 points and eight assists as South Dakota State won its 15th straight home game, beating Buffalo 86-65 on Saturday.

Griffan Callahan hit three 3-pointers and scored 21 points for the Jackrabbits (22-7), a Summit League team for whom the BracketBusters victory was its third in a row. Tony Fiegen added 11 points.

Mitchell Watt led the Bulls (16-8) with 15 points and eight rebounds. Zach Filzen scored 13 and Tony Watson 11, and each player made three 3-pointers.
