Jacks Men On Road, Women Home

South Dakota State will have both basketball teams in action Thursday with one team home and the other on the road.

South Dakota State returns to the road for its first game in the Progressive Legends Classic for the men at Texas Tech in Lubbock, Texas. The Jackrabbits and Red Raiders tip at 7 p.m., from United Spirit Arena, with the game on 570 WNAX.

The Jackrabbits hit the road after splitting a short two game home stand, falling to Montana on Nov. 14, by a 77-69 score before bouncing back with an 83-62 win over Southwest Minnesota State on Monday night. They are 1-3 on the season.

Riding a modest two-game winning streak and sporting a five-game home winning streak, the South Dakota State women’s basketball team (2-2) hosts West Coast Conference opponent Pepperdine University (2-1) at 7 p.m. Thursday in the friendly confines of Frost Arena. The game will be heard on 104.1 The Wolf.

The Jackrabbits won their second consecutive game with an impressive 80-44 win over Northern Iowa Nov. 17. The Waves are coming off a 76-59 win over UC Irvine in their home opener Nov. 14.
