Jordan Miller led four Mustangs in double figures with a game-high 18 points before fouling out of the game late in the second half.Vinard Birth scored 15, Lavione West 13 and Matt Zager 10 points in the loss.

 

The Mustangs hung with the Jacks for much of the first half, forcing nine ties and eight lead changes, but the Jackrabbits held SMSU without a field goal from the 3:49 mark of the first half until the 16:33 mark of the second half. SMSU scored four points in that span, compared to 24 for the Jackrabbits.

 

The Jackrabbits return to action on Saturday against North Dakota at 7:30 p.m., following the SDSU women’s basketball game against Kansas State at 5 p.m.
