Stanford Crushes SDSU

South Dakota State ended its second two-game California road trip of the season on Sunday with a 92-60 loss at Stanford.

 

“What I told the players is that this is a great opportunity; it’s an opportunity to grow, because you usually don’t grow when things are going well, you grow when things are tough, and there’s a lot of growing that needs to happen on our basketball team,” head coach Scott Nagy said. “I still think that if we can get it together that this can be the best team that I’ve ever coached, and I do believe that, but clearly we’re not there yet.”

 

The Cardinal, who improve to 6-2 on the season, made seven of their first eight shots of the game in opening a 21-3 lead less than five minutes into the game. They shot 66.7 percent overall in the first half, 24-36, and went 5 for 10 from 3-point range. For the game, Stanford shot 59.6 percent, 34 of 57 and went 7 for 14 from long range.

 

The Jackrabbits, who fall to 3-6, put together an 8-0 run midway through the first half that cut the Stanford lead to 30-16, but the Cardinal outscored the Jacks 28-8 in the rest of the half, and took an insurmountable 58-24 lead into the locker room at halftime.

 

SDSU shot 33.8 percent for the game overall, 22 of 65, and went 6 for 25 from distance, 24 percent.

 

Jordan Dykstra led the Jackrabbits with 20 points in the loss, with Brayden Carlson pitching in 16 and Connor Devine a career-high seven points to go along with his career-high seven rebounds.

 

Chasson Randle led four Cardinal players in double figures with 21 points. Anthony Brown added 19 points, Josh Huestis 13 and Stefan Nastic 10 points. Both Brown and Huestis tied for game-high honors with eight rebounds.

 

The Jackrabbits return home to host Dakota State on Wednesday at 7 p.m., and then return to the road on Tuesday, Dec. 10 at Minnesota.
