The No. 14 seed South Dakota State Jackrabbits let an early lead slip away but continued to battle until the final buzzer, eventually falling the the No. 3 seed Baylor Bears, 68-60.
The Jackrabbits jumped out to a 19-7 lead to start the game before Baylor came charging back to take control of the game and a 36-30 lead to the half. The Bears kept the Jackrabbits at arm's length for much of the second half until a last-ditch run by South Dakota State made things interesting.
Brayden Carlson had a three-point shot to draw the Jackrabbits within one point with 30 seconds to play, but the shot bounced off the front iron and Baylor was able to put away the win at the free throw line.
While the season ends for South Dakota State, Baylor advances to play the winner of No. 6 seed UNLV vs. No. 11 seed Colorado.
