SDSU Fans Excited With Final Four Appearance

SDSU Fans Excited With Final Four Appearance

It was another big game in Brookings as the SDSU Women's Basketball Team tangled with Indiana to advance Final Four in the Women's NIT.

The sea of blue is electric inside Frost Arena.

"It's going to be loud. I think if your ears are sensitive you better have ear plugs today," Don Larson said.

Just under 3,800 people came to cheer on the Jacks, a season-high for a women's game. That number has grown as SDSU gets deeper into the tournament.

"It's been great. It started out at the Butler game, there's only 10 students here but it's been great seeing everybody come around and rally around the team and really cheered them on," Jacob Johnson said.

This was the fourth straight home game in the tournament for the Jacks. Life-long SDSU fan Don Larson says he is enjoying watching his team succeed in the postseason.

"All of our players on these teams are from this region and this immediate area. So it's great to see our kids competing on a national stage," Larson said.

As the home games might be good for SDSU and Brookings, some of the fans cheering for the Jacks come from thousands of miles away from KELOLAND.

Danica Peterson and Paige Kramer traveled cross country to cheer on their cousin Clarissa Ober. Peterson flew in from Chicago, while Kramer came from Philadelphia.

"Brookings is a lot different from Chicago. A lot more rural," Peterson said.

"There's a lot more cows here than in Philadelphia," Kramer said.

Even with the different culture, the two are amazed with the fans of SDSU.

"It's nice to be here. It's nice to see a lot of people here in blue and yellow. We both went to schools that are not as athletically inclined so it's sort of an enjoyable experience to be in a school that is a D-1 school that has a fan base," Kramer said.

A fan base that has had a lot to cheer for this postseason.
