WBK: Jackrabbits Fall In OT To Marquette

WBK: Jackrabbits Fall In OT To Marquette
BROOKINGS, SD -

Arlesia Morse scored nine of her game-high 23 points in overtime, leading Marquette (Wis.) to a 77-74 victory over South Dakota State in women’s basketball action Wednesday night at Frost Arena.

The Golden Eagles improved to 3-2, while SDSU dropped to 3-4 overall.

The Jackrabbits got out of the gates quickly, connecting on four of their first six shots from the field and a pair of free throws to take an early 10-2 lead.

However, Marquette countered with a 12-3 run to take a 14-13 lead on a jumper by Katie Young midway through the front half. SDSU regained the lead at 21-20 on a basket by Gabby Boever, but the Golden Eagles scored the next 12 points as Arlesia Morse closed the run with three-pointers on consecutive trips down the floor.

Marquette led 32-24 at the half.

Reserve guard Tara Heiser sparked a Jackrabbit comeback early in the second half. The Watertown native made her first four shots from the field, including a pair of three-pointers, and added a pair of free throws, the last of which brought SDSU to within 42-40 with 12:53 to play in regulation. A basket by Megan Waytashek knotted the game at 42-all and Leah Dietel gave SDSU the lead with a free throw.

SDSU held a five-point lead, 61-56, as late as five minutes to play on an Ashley Eide three-pointer, but the Golden Eagles battled back. Consecutive three-pointers by Brooklyn Pumroy gave Marquette a momentary 62-61 lead with 3:55 to play.

Megan Waytashek gave the Jackrabbits a 65-63 lead with a pair of free throws before Pumroy hit her third three-pointer in a little over three minutes to again give the Golden Eagles the lead. Leah Dietel knotted the game at 66-all by making 1-of-2 free throws. After a turnover, SDSU had a chance to win the game in the closing seconds, but Boever missed a three-pointer and Morse’s runner on the other end drew iron as time expired to send the game into overtime.

In the extra session, Morse scored eight straight points, including three-pointers on back-to-back trips down the floor to give Marquette a 76-70 lead. The Jackrabbits closed to within 76-74 on free throws by Dietel and Boever, but Morse put the finishing touches on her night by making 1-of-2 attempts at the charity stripe.

A Jackrabbit three-point attempt just before the buzzer came up empty.

Pumroy ended the night with 17 points on 4-of-6 shooting from beyond the arc, while Katherine Plouffe contributed eight points and a game-high 11 rebounds for Marquette. The Golden Eagles ended the night with a 38-33 rebounding advantage.

Eide led the Jackrabbits with 21 points, connecting on 4-of-7 from long range. Waytashek ended the night with 17 points, while Hesier’s dozen were a season high. Dietel finished with seven points and team-high six rebounds.

Shooting stats were nearly identical; Marquette was 25-of-56 from the field, 44.6 percent, while the Jackrabbits were 23-of-57, 40.4 percent. The Golden Eagles were 9-of-20 from three-point range compared to 7-of-21 by SDSU. At the line, the Jackrabbits converted 21-of-28 attempts, 75 percent, while Marquette went 18-of-27 for 66.7 percent.

SDSU continues its homestand Saturday afternoon, hosting Middle Tennessee State in the front end of a doubleheader at 4 p.m. The 2003 NCAA Division II national championship team will be honored at halftime.
