The Coyotes have lost 2 of their last 3 games and one of those losses was to this same Bison squad back on January 7 in overtime, 74 – 62. NDSU has taken wins from 10 of their 12 home outings this season and the line setters seem to favor the odds of another win here at the Scheels Center.
South Dakota just suffered a defeat by in-state rival South Dakota State on Friday night, 89 – 79, but the Jackrabbits have been doing that too mostly all of their opponents this year.
The Bison are sitting by themselves in the third spot of the Summit standings behind ORU and those Jackrabbits who are a perfect 12 – 0 in conference play. North Dakota State will only have 5 games remaining in the regular season after this affair and then the Summit Conference Tournament gets underway.
South Dakota Coyotes
In the 74 – 62 overtime loss to North Dakota State the first time these two programs met, the Coyotes bench only provided 2 points and the team only converted 4 of the15 shots behind the arc. Head Coach Todd Lee has a chance to match his win total from last season should the Yotes provide an upset on the road tonight.
South Dakota has yet to appear in the NCAA Tournament and it will take a run through the title game for it to happen this season. Let’s just say that this team will have to play above and beyond the rest of the way to make any miracle happen during March Madness. However, a strong finish to the regular season combined with a moderate run in the Summit tourney might be enough to land this program in one of the post-season tournaments, albeit the CBI or NIT.
Coach Lee won 20 games with this team in his second year here and that wasn’t good enough to get this team to any invitations so the odds for them to pull it off this year are against them. Even with a 7 – 0 finish to the regular season, that would get the Coyotes to 20-wins heading into the Summit Tourney.
Coach Lee expects his starters to stay in the game and produce the points, as you’ll really only see Erik Oliver and Xavier Fuller getting minutes off the bench. It was the case again last time out in the loss to the Jackrabbits as all 5 starters found their way to double-digits while Fuller added 12 from the pine.
Kruz Perrott-Hunt will likely be the Yotes leading scorer tonight and he had better catch fire down the stretch if this team has any chance of post-season aspirations at all. Perrott-Hunt leads this club with 15 PPG and he splashes 39.2% of his attempts from 3-point distance while adding a handful of rebounds a night.
The Coyotes are averaging 74.2 PPG which ranks them 104th in the nation in scoring and they sit in the 118th spot making 35% of their shot behind the arc. Guarding the arc is a different story, however, because this program is among the worst in all of NCAA hoops ranking 351st in the land against 3-point shooters.
North Dakota State Bison
Does anyone realize that the Bison win football games and hoops games at home better than anyone? The football team has been constantly winning their home games and go look up the 39 straight wins they pulled off recently which includes home win after home win… etc.
So, the hoops program has only lost twice at home this year and that is aided by the play of Rocky Kreuser and Sam Griesel. As you stroll over the North Dakota State home page on ESPN you see two names just constantly being highlighted night in and night out. ‘Kreuser with a 20-point game leads the Bison’, and ‘Griesel with a 20-point night carries the Bison’.
Kreuser has put up nine 20-point games this season and he leads this program averaging 16.1 PPG. The 6-10 senior also pulls in 8 boards a night and he can knock down his free throws as good as anyone in the nation.
Griesel has found his way to 20 points four different times this year and the 6 – 6 junior also works the glass with over 6 rebounds a contest to go with his 12 PPG. In the win over Denver last time out, however, Griesel did his famous disappearing act that he tends to do here and there. As you see, he came away with only 4 points in the Denver outing and that is the 6th time he has been held to 5 points or less this season.
The Bison rank 43rd in the land converting 75.5% of team free throws and this program sits in the 113th spot of the rankings nailing 35.1% of their 3-point attempts.
Tyree Eady contributes plenty to those 3-point numbers as he is burying 37.5% of his shots behind the arc. He looked great last time out against Denver hitting 7 of 9 from the floor making 3 of 4 shots from distance while finding his way to 17 points in the win over the Pioneers.
