Jacks Frustrated With Loss To Michigan

Bookmark and Share

The Jackrabbits came into Thursday night's game at The Palace of Auburn Hills with lots of confidence after having come close against Baylor last year down in Albuquerque, and got off to a quick start against the hometown Wolverines.

The Jackrabbits came out strong in this one, leading 13-7 with everyone contributing, and when Brayden Carlson hit a "3", they were up 16-10. However, they went six minutes without scoring.

"We didn't shoot the ball. We were frustrated at half time, just with our offensive play. It just felt like we were timid, soft. I mean, we're down four to Michigan at half and we're playing well, said SDSU head coach Scott Nagy."

Tim Hardaway then took over. He scored 12 in the first half and Michigan regained the lead. If it wasn't for Carlson's 16 points in the first half, the Jacks wouldn't have been as close as four at half time.

"Without Brayden in the first half we wouldn't have stood a chance, we would have been blown out of there, and he played huge. I just thought we'd make a run, maybe in the second half. We started to play a little better offensively, but then in the second half we just couldn't get stops," said SDSU senior Tony Fiegen.

Then in the second half, it was Glenn Robinson who came out hot, 11 straight points to lead the way, and it felt like the Wolverines had pretty much taken control of the game. They built that lead up to double digits.

Tony Fiegen had 10 points after intermission. That helped get the Jacks as close as seven points, but no closer.

"We just couldn't score. We had open shots, some bad turnovers. I mean, it happens. I don't think it was the big stage. I think it was just one of those off nights that we just couldn't get a shot to fall," said SDSU senior Nate Wolters.

"It was a good season, obviously we fell short tonight, but we're just really thankful to represent the state of South Dakota and for every opportunity we had this year," said SDSU junior Jordan Dykstra.
