MURFREESBORO, Tenn. – Middle Tennessee State (9-3) used a 16-4 run midway through the second half to snap South Dakota State women’s basketball’s (9-5) five-game winning streak with a 59-44 win Saturday in front of 3,035 fans at the Murphy Center.

The Jackrabbits were led by senior Steph Paluch’s (Pierre) 10 points. Junior Mariah Clarin (Princeton, Minn.) had a team-high seven rebounds.

Middle Tennessee State was led by Ebony Rose with game-high of 29 points and added 13 rebounds. Olivia Jones also collected 14 rebounds.
