Jackrabbits Already Have Crown, Looking For Bragging Rights Against Coyotes Sunday

You might think South Dakota State would be approaching Sunday’s regular season finale with a slightly ho-hum attitude.  After all, the Jackrabbits have already secured their third straight Summit League regular season championship, and the number one seed that comes with it at next week’s Summit League Tournament in Sioux Falls.

But one look at the schedule tells you the Jackrabbits will be doing everything they can to win this game.  It’s a match-up with in-state rival South Dakota, a team that nearly knocked them off in the tournament championship game last year.

SDSU nailed down the regular season championship outright with a 14-point win at Denver Thursday night.  It wasn’t easy for the Jacks early, as they dug themselves an early 13-point deficit.

But midway through the first half, the 3-pointers began to fall and SDSU was back in it after a 22-3 run.  In all, the Jackrabbits knocked down a season-high 12 triples in the game, putting four players in double figures, while limiting the Pioneers to under 30 percent shooting in the second half.

SUMMIT LEAGUE RECAP: SDSU 69 DENVER 55

The Jackrabbits will be looking for a season sweep of the Coyotes Sunday, after winning by 19 at home last month.  That game started with a 53-point first half for SDSU, their highest total in the first 20 minutes of a game in more than a year.

Head coach Aaron Johnston told me he expects his bench to play a key role in the rematch.
