South Dakota State Jackrabbits

South Dakota State is a balanced team that ranks tied for 98th in the nation in scoring and tied for 76th in opponents’ points per game.
The Jackrabbits are led by freshman FW Mike Daum and they also two solid guards in George Marshall and Deondre Parks, who are each averaging over 14 ppg. One of the key match ups in this game will be Perks going against Maryland’s Melo Trimble, who is one of the better guards in the nation.
The Jackrabbits are balanced and they are a gritty and tough team, but can they keep up with the much more talented Terps? That is the big question in this game.
The Jackrabbits are 5-0 this season at neutral site games.
The Terps did not end the season well, but they do have a solid defense and in their last game they only lost by 3 points to 2nd ranked Michigan State.
Maryland ranks 103rd in the nation in scoring and 49th in opponents’ points allowed.
Maryland has a solid G/FW duo in Trimble and Diamond Stone (12.9 ppg, 5.5 rpg). They use a balanced attack and the Jackrabbits will have to play a solid all-around game on defense to pull off the big upset. The Terrapins have 5 players that are averaging in double figures.
Maryland is 5-1 this season at games held at a neutral site.
It is interesting that the losses that Maryland suffered at the end of the season came against solid teams with the one exception being their loss to Minnesota, who South Dakota beat this season.
