It’s a big road test for South Dakota State Saturday afternoon in Indianapolis. The first place Jackrabbits and second place IUPUI with just one game separating them in the Summit League Standings.

SDSU comes in after getting career highs from Hannah Strop and Chynna Stevens (16 points each) in an 11-point win at Fort Wayne Thursday night.  The Jacks led by as many as 25 points in the first half, and limited the top shooting team in the conference to just 33 percent shooting, and eight points below their season scoring average.


Saturday’s game against IUPUI will feature two teams that match-up very well as evidenced by their first meeting last month in Brookings.  In that game, neither team reach 40 percent shooting on the night and the two combined for 37 turnovers.

But the Jacks displayed great balance, putting 10 players in the score column, outscoring the Jags 31-14 off the bench, offsetting 21 from Jags talented guard DeAirra Goss.
