MBK: SDSU Looks To Defend Another Summit Title

MBK: SDSU Looks To Defend Another Summit Title
BROOKINGS, SD -

With their 75-61 win at home over USD Saturday the Jackrabbits secured the three seed in this weekends Summit League Tournament held here in Sioux Falls. The back-to-back defending champions are excited to defend their title.

The Jackrabbit men enter the Summit League Tournament with a record of 18-11 and 10-4 in League play. Although his team has to deal with more media and more pressure than the other teams making the trip to Sioux Falls, Scott Nagy knows nobody feels sorry for his squad.

"I've said it before that we have distractions that nobody else does down there, because lets face it most of the fans are our fans. I know too that there aren't any coaches crying for me about distractions. They think that we have the home court advantage, we probably do too," SDSU Head Coach Scott Nagy said.

The Jackrabbit faithful have supported their student athletes very well the past five years the tournament has been held in the Arena. Senior Brayden Carlson is hoping for a sea of blue and gold once again.

"It's a great atmosphere, a lot like Frost Arena. There is always five or six thousand people there and it feels like more. I hope everybody makes it down there and Jackrabbit fans fill the place up again. We are really looking forward to playing down there and having the home court advantage," SDSU Senior Guard Brayden Carlson said.

The Jacks may not be entering as the favorite without the likes of Nate Wolters and Tony Fiegen this year. But they do have the crowd and four seniors that know what it takes to go dancing.

"We certainly go into this tournament with confidence because we have kids that know what to expect and what it is going to look like. Those things help and I love the experience we have," Nagy said.

"I've always said and I think we all know to be a champion you have to beat a champion. We know we have that experience and we are ready to go in there with guns blazing giving it everything we have got," SDSU Senior Jordan Dykstra said.

The Jackrabbits will play Western Illinois Sunday in the Arena. Tip off is set for 8:30.
