SDSU Fans Celebrate At Watch Party



Bookmark and Share

Sunday night was the night that South Dakota State had been waiting for. It was the night the Jackrabbits learned who they would be playing in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament.

 

Not only were the players excited, but their fans were as well.

 

Green beer may have been the drink of choice, but at Cubby's Sports Bar and Grill in Brookings on Sunday night, it was all about the ‘Yellow and Blue.’

 

Hundreds of SDSU fans filled the downtown bar, their eyes glued to the dozens of TV screens that lined the walls. They were all waiting to hear who their team would face in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament.

 

“There's already been such a buzz on campus, so having the buzz on campus just expand to the community is absolutely incredible. It's so much fun!" said SDSU Junior, Katie Stemper.

 

On Tuesday night, the SDSU Men's Basketball team won their second straight Summit League title, meaning they would once again be making an appearance in the ‘Big Dance.’

 

When the announcement was made that SDSU would take on Michigan, the crowd went wild.

 

“We were excited to hear the announcer say that this team is one of the teams that could be one of the upsets in the tournament, starring Nate Wolters, one of the unique point guards in the country. That was exciting!" said SDSU Alum, Keith Jensen.

 

SDSU fans are confident, that this year will be different, in what will be their second NCAA Division 1 Tournament appearance.

 

“We got a really good team again and we're ready to give them a go again this year!" said another SDSU alum, Matt Einsbar.

 

The men's basketball team will head to Michigan on Tuesday, ready to play in the first game on Thursday.
