    BROOKINGS, S.D. -- Nate Wolters scored 28 points to help put South Dakota State in control of the Summit League regular-season title with a 64-55 win over Western Illinois on Saturday.

    Wolters, a senior playing in his final home game, was 10 of 16 from the floor for the Jackrabbits (21-7, 12-3), who moved into first place, a half-game ahead of the Leathernecks (19-6, 11-3). SDSU can clinch the No. 1 spot in the conference tournament with a victory at Nebraska-Omaha on Feb. 28.

    Jordan Dykstra added 12 points and 10 rebounds for the Jackrabbits, who won their school-record 30th consecutive home game.

    Ceola Clark had 20 points for the Leathernecks, who trailed by as many as 12 but rallied in the second half. Adam Link's layup with 4:15 to play pulled WIU within 49-47, but Wolters made back-to-back layups before Chad White iced the victory with a 3-pointer with 1:03 left.
