VERMILLION, S.D. -- Karim Rowson scored 21 points and hauled in nine rebounds as South Dakota cruised past Indiana Purdue Fort Wayne in a 75-61 win on Saturday.
South Dakota (8-9, 3-0) overcame the Mastodons with two big drives, closing out the first half by scoring 17 of the last 25 points to carry a 33-23 advantage into the break, then broke open the game in the second half with a 17-4 run that made it 50-29 with 14 minutes to play.
IPFW (15-6, 3-1) led midway through the first half but couldn't stop South Dakota's offense.
The only thing that can sink John Calipari's star-studded ship is a leadership void, but Isaiah Briscoe seems to have that covered.
Indiana is already at the scholarship limit for the 2017-18 season, but the Hoosiers have three potential NBA Draft prospects and need reinforcements.
It's been 10 years since the NBA's one-and-done rule was implemented. Imagine if the draft rules were different. Here are the eight would-be best teams if these players stayed a little longer.
