Half-time Thoughts

Half-Time Thoughts
First of all, congratulations to the Women’s squad for their 65-50 point victory over the USD Coyotes. Now, lets discuss the first half developments of the second of two South Dakota rivalry games today.
No Daum, No Problem
Jackrabbit standout Mike Daum found himself in foul trouble early. It is obvious that USD is going after Daum early on offense to get him on the bench. When Mike Daum was placed on the bench he had two personal fouls and six points. However, the Jackrabbits have responded as a team as everyone has been pitching in. Severyn, Tellinhusen, Key, Flatten and especially Jenkins Jr. have all been making plays tonight. With Daum on the bench they ended the first half with a 12-point lead.

After a tight game against Western Illinois the Jackrabbits took on the North Dakota State University Bison in the semi-finals. In the end, SDSU prevailed over the Bison 78 to 58. Except for close stretch in the second half SDSU enjoyed a comfortable lead for most of the game. They came bursting out of the gate on offense and played tough half court defense that allowed the Jacks to get out ahead early. Here are some take-aways and thoughts on tomorrow’s game.
Effective Half-Court Defense
While the Jackrabbits have shown that they know how to score They are not especially known for defense. Something that is especially important during the tournament. From tournaments in the past I have noticed that officiating tends to help defensive teams. Essentially, officials will let players play on and be more physical, which is fine, it is the post season after all. With that b…
