Eide canned a career-high seven three-pointers en route to her 27 points. Megan Waytashek added nine points and Leah Dietel chipped in with eight points and three steals.

The Jackrabbits finished the game 19-of-47 from the field, 40.4 percent, including 9-of-31 from three-point range against the Georgetown zone defense. SDSU made 17-of-24 free throw attempts, 70.8 percent.
