South Dakota State takes an 11-game home winning streak into Saturday’s Summit League game with Fort Wayne Saturday in Brookings.

The Jacks survived the Summit League opener Thursday night, giving up a 12-point second half lead before rallying to beat IUPUI 63-57.

Game two of the Summit League schedule is Saturday afternoon against Fort Wayne.

The Jacks have enjoyed great success against the Mastodons over the years, winning 20 of the previous 21 meetings.

The key to stopping Fort Wayne is trying to contain pre-season Summit League Player of the Year Amanda Hyde.

This season, Hyde is averaging 23 points a game, and dropped in 35 in a win at North Dakota State Thursday night, including two free throws with 0.3 seconds left in regulation to tie it and a 3-pointer with 3.9 seconds left to force a second overtime.

Last season in Brookings, Hyde shot 50% and scored 29 against SDSU, but was just 4-of-17 (24%) with 19 points in the other two match-ups with the Jacks.

She also has a great supporting cast this season:
