Albuquerque, NM (Sports Network) - Nate Wolters posted game highs of 28 points and seven assists as South Dakota State stunned 16th-ranked and previously unbeaten New Mexico, 70-65, at The Pit.

Wolters made good on 9-of-15 field goal attempts to pace the Jackrabbits' offense, while South Dakota State (10-4) also delivered on the defensive end to pull off the upset. The defending Summit League champions held the Lobos to a 37 percent success rate from the floor and led nearly wire-to-wire.

The shocking victory came just three days after SDSU was routed at Belmont by 27 points (76-49) on Wednesday.

Jordan Dykstra added 10 points and 10 rebounds for the Jackrabbits, with Chad White contributing 13 points to the triumph.

Kendall Marshall finished with 21 points for New Mexico (12-1), which saw a 14-game win streak against non-conference opponents come to an end. Tony Snell had 13 points in defeat.
