SDSU Women Fall To Creighton

Marissa Janning gave Creighton a 61-59 lead with 47 seconds remaining as the Bluejays closed Tuesday’s nonconference game with a 10-4 run to hand South Dakota State a 68-63 loss.

 

The Jacks, now 0-2, were led by senior Steph Paluch (Pierre) as she scored 17 points.  Junior Mariah Clarin (Princeton, Minn.) added 12 points while junior Megan Waytashek (Lino Lakes, Minn.) recorded 11 points.

 

SDSU used a 7-0 run to take a 59-58 lead when Clarin scored with 2:40 remaining. Unfortunately, the Jackrabbits turned the ball over on back-to-back possessions.

Janning had a game-high 20 points, including eight of Creighton’s last 10 points.

 

The Jackrabbits outrebounded Creighton, 39-26. Senior Hannah Strop (New Prague, Minn.) recorded a game-high eight rebounds while Clarin snared seven.  Junior Gabby Boever (Worthington, Minn.) led SDSU with seven assists and two steals.

 

SDSU plays its home opener Friday when the Jacks meet Georgetown at 7 p.m. in Frost Arena.
