Nashville, TN (Sports Network) - Trevor Noack scored 24 points as the Belmont
Bruins cruised to a 76-49 win over the South Dakota State Jackrabbits in a
non-conference matchup at the Curb Event Center.

Belmont led 26-22 after a low scoring first half. The game was tied late in
the period but jump shots from Clark and Noack gave the Bruins a four-point
advantage heading into the intermission.
The contest remained close for the early stages of the second half. SDSU

for just the second time in their last 10 outings.
