VERMILLION, S.D. -- Jesse Berry scored 22 points and freshman Marcus Posley added a season-high 20 off the bench, helping Ball State sweep its home-and-home series with South Dakota with an 80-73 victory Saturday night.
Majok Majok continued to dominate the glass, pulling down 13 rebounds to go along with 11 points for the Cardinals (5-4), who got their first road win of the season. Ball State also beat South Dakota 62-51 at home on Dec. 8 in a series sandwiched around finals week.
South Dakota stayed close throughout the second half and pulled within 63-62 on Karim Rowson's layup with 2:44 left, but Ball State scored the next six, capped by Posley's two free throws with 1:02 left, to put the game away.
The first two picks are clear, but after that it's wide open. Which NBA teams does Dickie V have last season's college basketball stars going to on the eve of the draft?
Xavier could have a big 2017 class, and the Musketeers have plenty of options at each position of need -- including several ESPN 100 prospects.
Who should each team draft? The answers may surprise you. Kevin Pelton provides his projections for both rounds of the draft.
