MBK: Fiegen And Dykstra Earn Weekly Honors

MBK: Fiegen And Dykstra Earn Weekly Honors
BROOKINGS, SD -

Two South Dakota State men’s basketball players posted double-doubles in the Jackrabbits thrilling 68-67 win over Montana on Saturday in Missoula, Mont., earning them both weekly accolades. The Summit League named Tony Fiegen its player of the week, while College Sports Madness tabbed Jordan Dykstra for its weekly league honor.


A senior forward from Madison, Fiegen earned his first career award after a double-double performance that led the Jackrabbits past Montana and snapped the Grizzlies’ 15-game home court win streak, the eighth-longest in NCAA Division I. His two decisive free throws with 8.9 seconds remaining in the second overtime propelled SDSU to the 68-67 victory. Fiegen scored 13 points and pulled down a career-high 13 rebounds, including six on the offensive end, while playing a career-high 43 minutes. He converted five-of-nine field goal attempts and all three free throws while adding one steal.


“Tony has worked so hard this season, so this is a well-deserved honor,” head coach Scott Nagy said. “Our whole team couldn’t be more happy for him.”


A junior forward from Rock Valley, Iowa, Dykstra got the nod from College Sports Madness as its Summit League Men’s Basketball Player of the Week after he led the Jacks with 16 points in the win at Montana, adding 10 rebounds for his fourth career double-double. Dykstra also tied a career-high with three steals and tied a season-high with three assists in the win.


“Jordan is probably the most consistent player on our basketball team right now, and that’s exactly what we need at this point in the season,” Nagy said. “He stepped up his game when the injury bug bit us, and now we need him to keep that going as we get healthy.”


The Jackrabbits return to action on Wednesday, when they play at Belmont in Nashville, Tenn., at 7 p.m.
