WBK: SDSU Remains Perfect In League Play

Freshman Kerri Young (Mitchell, S.D.) had a career-high 23 points as South Dakota State defeated North Dakota State, 73-53, in Summit League women’s basketball action Saturday in front of 1,763 fans in Bison Sports Arena.
SDSU improves to 14-7 overall and 5-0 in conference play while NDSU falls to 5-15 overall and 1-4. The Jacks extend their win streak to five games overall and has won nine-straight games in Fargo.
Young, who was named SDSU’s MVP of the 2014 Katherine Burgum Classic, shot 8 for 16 from the field, including 7 of 8 from the foul line, and added a personal-best six rebounds. Junior Megan Waytashek (Lino Lakes, Minn.) had 12 points, 7 rebounds and a game-high 6 assists. Freshman Chynna Stevens (Clark) added 10 points off the bench. Junior Gabby Boever (Worthington, Minn.) grabbed a career-high nine rebounds.
The Jackrabbits, who led by one after the first half, opened the second half with a 7-3 run. Stevens scored five points and Young two during the stretch.
South Dakota State pushed the lead to 14 points, 55-41, after sinking four free throws and getting a three-pointer from Stevens and a traditional three-point play from Young with 6:45 left. Young registered her career high with a pair of free throws at the 4:16 mark to give the Jackrabbits a 61-47 lead.
The Jacks took a 12-point lead, 18-6, midway through the first half. Young scored six of her 14 first-half points during the run. After back-to-back three-pointers by NDSU’s Brooke LeMar and SDSU’s Steph Paluch (Pierre, S.D), the Bison pulled within six points, 22-16, with eight minutes left.
SDSU made just three field goals the final 10:57 of the half, including a four-minute stretch with the Jacks scoring only four points from the foul line. The Jacks still had a nine-point lead, 27-18, with 5:50 left, but North Dakota State used a 12-4 run to close the half trailing, 31-30.
LeMar led NDSU with 20 points and Holly Johnson had 13 points.
South Dakota State returns to the friendly confines of Frost Arena Jan. 30 when it hosts Denver at 7 p.m.
