Dakota State wins first-ever State Farm A.I.I. Men’s Basketball Championships

Dakota State led the majority of the game in the 2012 State Farm Association of Independent Institutions (A.I.I.) men's basketball championship game Sunday evening at DSU Fieldhouse.  The Trojans defeated their former Dakota Athletic Conference rival Jamestown (N.D.) 80-71.  It was the first-ever A.I.I. conference tournament title in their first-year membership of the conference.

Dakota State, which recorded their second-straight upset victory over nationally-ranked teams in two days (defeated No. 25 Valley City State 82-73 on Saturday night), raised their overall record to 18-12.  Jamestown, No. 8 in the latest NAIA Division II Men's Basketball national tournament, dropped their record to 25-6.
