PIERRE -- The Pierre Governors got their first win of the season in comeback fashion Friday night, downing the Brookings Bobcats, 63-53. Pierre rallied from a 7-point deficit in the fourth quarter to win going away. Curry Kuehl led the way for the Govs, scoring 22 points.
Brookings was led by senior Brayden Carlson, who scored a game-high 27 points, but also had a technical foul that gave Pierre three shots and the ball in the midst of their fourth-quarter rally. The Govs stay home through the weekend, playing host to Huron on Saturday night. Tipoff is set for 7:30 p.m.
