Jacks Begin League Play

Jacks Begin League Play

The Summit League season is here for South Dakota State.

South Dakota State’s season-long five game road trip got cut to four games after winter weather forced the Jackrabbits and Buffalo to indefinitely postponed the game scheduled for Jan. 3, in Buffalo.

The postponement ends the Jacks non-conference season a game early and cuts the road swing to four games, which means the road trip ends with the beginning of Summit League play this week, with games at IUPUI on Thursday and at Fort Wayne on Saturday. Both games begin at 7 p.m. ET.

The Jacks league play riding a season-long four game winning streak, which includes their first two road wins of the season after a 77-70 win at North Dakota on Dec. 21, and a 65-60 win at Kansas City on Dec. 28. The wins also put the Jacks over .500 for the season with an 8-7 overall record.
