WBK: Jacks Open Summit League Play With Win
BROOKINGS, SD -

Ashley Eide hit the 20-point mark for the third consecutive game, leading South Dakota State over North Dakota State, 76-57, in the Summit League women’s basketball opener for both teams Sunday afternoon at Frost Arena.

In recording win No. 299 of head coach Aaron Johnston’s career, the Jackrabbits improved to 9-5 overall. NDSU dropped to 4-9 on theseason.

SDSU got off to a fast start, making eight of its first 10 shots from the field to build an early 18-5 lead. Back-to-back three-pointers by Ashley Eide and Megan Waytashek fueled the outburst, which included a pair of baskets by Leah Dietel.

The Jackrabbits continued to extend their lead throughout the first half, taking their largest lead of the opening stanza, 45-17, on consecutive three-pointers from opposite sides of the floor by Hannah Strop in the closing minutes. SDSU, which shot 54.8 percent (25-of-47) in the first half, led 45-19 at halftime.

The SDSU lead quickly grew to 30 points early in the second half. NDSU put together a run to get back to within 22 points at 58-36, but the Jackrabbits scored the next nine on treys by Eide and Waytashek, followed by a traditional three-point play by Dietel.

Eide finished with a game-high 20 points on 9-of-13 shooting from the field. Waytashek scored 17 points, while Dietel ended the afternoon with 14 points and a game-high eight rebounds.

The Jackrabbits shot an even 50 percent for the game, 28-of-56, including an 8-of-13 effort from behind the arc. Waytashek was 3-for-3 on three-pointers, while Hannah Strop went 3-for-4 en route to ninepoints. At the line, SDSU was 12-of-15, 80 percent.

Holly Johnson, Dani DeGagne and Katie Birkel each scored 11 points to lead NDSU. The Bison ended the day 23-of-56 from the field, 41.1 percent, with a 4-for-13 effort on three-point attempts. NDSU made 7-of-10 free throw tries for 70 percent.

NDSU held a slim 33-32 rebounding advantage as DeGagne and Jamie Van Kirk each recorded six rebounds.

The Jackrabbits return to action Thursday (Jan. 3) by hosting Kansas City in a 7 p.m. contest at Frost Arena.
