Along with White and his 11 points, the Jacks got14 from Brayden Carlson and 12 from Cody Larson, while Jordan Dykstra led all players with 10 rebounds to go with his seven points.

 

The Jacks look to get back on the winning track on Monday, when they host Howard in the Progressive Legends Classic at Frost Arena at 8 p.m., a game preceded by a contest pitting Lehigh and Texas Southern against at 5:30 p.m.

Megan Waytashek scored a season- and game-high 26 points to help the South Dakota State women’s basketball (3-2) extend its winning streak to three games with an 88-55 win over Pepperdine University (2-2) Thursday in front of 1,409 fans at Frost Arena.

 

The junior from Lino Lakes, Minn., was 7 of 10 from the field and 11 of 12 from the foul line. Freshman Kerri Young (Mitchell) tallied a career-high 13 points off the bench and senior Tara Heiser (Watertown) added 10 points.
