Free throws key to DSU's win over Western


An opportunity presented itself Saturday afternoon and the Dickinson State took full advantage.

Two technical fouls on Montana Western in the final minutes opened the door for the Blue Hawks to end a three-game Frontier Conference skid.

DSU shot 15 of 18 from the free-throw line in the final 4 minutes, 4 seconds to pull away from the Bulldogs for an 83-71 victory on Saturday afternoon at Scott Gymnasium.
