SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – South Dakota senior forward Tyler Hagedorn earned his second Summit League Player of the Week award Monday after averaging 23.5 points and going an efficient 6-of-8 from deep in leading the Coyotes to two big road wins over Denver and Omaha last week.

The Norfolk, Nebraska, native led the team in scoring in both games over the road trip. He had 20 points in a win over Denver and 27 points on 8-of-13 shooting against Omaha while grabbing seven rebounds against the Mavericks.

Hagedorn recorded his 12th 20-point game of the season and fourth consecutive game of 20 or more points. He is the nation's leader in 3-point percentage through 24 games. He has made 61-of-107 from deep for 57 percent. South Dakota ranks fourth in the nation in team 3-point percentage at 40.4 percent.

Additionally, Hagedorn leads the conference with 19.4 points per game and ranks fifth with seven rebounds per contest.

Hagedorn and the Yotes are back home on Tuesday to host their last non-conference game of the season in Peru State at 7 p.m. inside the Sanford Coyote Sports Center. South Dakota will then travel to Grand Forks, North Dakota, to take on North Dakota on Saturday at 2 p.m.
