Jacks Historic Streak Now 2nd Best In Nation



Bookmark and Share

BROOKINGS, S.D. --  There's little doubt that Frost Arena is the best venue in the Summit League.  It's also become one of the toughest places to visit in all of college basketball.

SDSU's 88-57 win over UMKC on Saturday extended their homecourt win streak to 28 consecutive victories.  That's a new SDSU and Summit League record.  The Jacks previous home record of 27 straight was set in 2004.

Cleveland State held the old Summit League (then Mid-Continent Conference) record of 27 straight from 1984-87.

In addition, with the University of Kansas 85-80 home loss to Oklahoma State, the Jacks now hold the nation's second longest active homecourt winning streak.  Only Syracuse (35 straight home wins) has a longer streak.

"We've been blessed with great fans and great coaches.  Those are the two main things, and we've had pretty good basketball team as well.  It helps, but our fans and coaches really set us up for this 28 game win streak."  SDSU Junior Jordan Dykstra said.

Coach Scott Nagy also credited the fan support in the streak, but was more impressed with the effort of his team.  SDSU was coming off emotional rivalry wins over North Dakota State and South Dakota but showed no letup against lowly UMKC.

"How proud I was of them because I think it would've been, coming off the NDSU and USD games, and knowing UMKC is struggling, it would've been very easy to have a letdown and we didn't."  Nagy said.
