The more things change, the more they stay the same. The South Dakota State University women’s basketball will attempt to prove that old adage correct as it prepares for the 2012-13 season. Despite losing two 1,000-point scorers, undergoing a bit of a shakeup in the coaching staff and facing a challenging schedule, veteran head coach Aaron Johnston believes the Jackrabbits still have the talent and ability to make another run at the NCAA Tournament. “I think this will be a unique year in that we’ve always had multiple proven scorers,” Johnston said. “We have always been a great jump-shooting team, but I think we’ve adjusted our offense that our strengths this season are going to be penetration, transition and getting to the basket.” While an emphasis on tough half-court defense remains, Johnston said the Jackrabbits have made some adjustments offensively and will force the issue more than in recent years. “A big part of our focus so far has been on building our offensive concepts and getting players ready,” Johnston said. “This team will be at its best when it is playing up-tempo and in a fullcourt setting.” Exactly who will step forward to take on the roles of departed 1,000-point scorers Jill Young and Jennie Sunnarborg remains to be seen, but this year’s roster figures to be among deepest in Johnston’s 13-year tenure as head coach. The duo of Sunnarborg and Young were cornerstone players on Jackrabbit teams that made an unprecedented four consecutive NCAA Tourney appearances in the first four years the program was fully eligible for Division I postseason consideration. Four seniors return to lead the Jackrabbits this season, including second-team all-Summit League selection from a year ago, Ashley Eide. The team’s top returning scorer at 10.9 points per game, Eide did a little bit of everything for the Jackrabbits last season as she led the team in

field goal percentage (.502), while ranking second in five other categories, including assists (75) and steals (37). Two other seniors with extensive starting experience are forward Leah Dietel and center Katie Lingle. Dietel started the final 20 games of the 201112 season and averaged 3.5 points and 3.6 rebounds per game. Lingle started the first 13 games of the year before providing a boost off the bench with averages of 6.4 points and 4.8 rebounds per game while adding a team-best 24 blocked shots. Rounding out the senior class is guard Steph Paluch, who has progressed well through her rehabilitation from a knee injury she suffered in the semifinals of the Summit League Championships in March. The Pierre native began the 2011-12 season as the Jackrabbits’ starting point guard, but saw her production increase when she moved to the off-guard spot. Paluch led the Jackrabbits in both steals (44) and assists (78) last season and would have the option to redshirt this season. “We’ve worked really hard with our seniors on developing leadership,” Johnston said. “All those players have had big-game experience. They know how to win, they know how to practice every day and they know how to prepare themselves.” The junior class consists of guard Tara Heiser and forward Hannah Strop. Heiser stepped into a starting role after Paluch’s injury and ended the year averaging 4.0 points and 2.5 rebounds. Heiser scored a season-high 12 points in her first start of the 2011-12 campaign, when the Jacks defeated UMKC in overtime to win their fourth consecutive Summit League tournament title. Strop hit some big shots from the perimeter during the 2011-12 campaign, finishing the year with averages of 2.5 points and 2.3 rebounds per game. The key to the Jackrabbits’ success could lie in a talented sophomore class.

2012-13 JACKRABBIT WOMEN’S BASKETBALL MEDIA GUIDE


2011-12 PREVIEW Gabby Boever turned in a strong second half during the 2011-12 season and will be in the mix for the starting point guard position this year, Johnston said. Boever was especially strong in the postseason as she posted averages of 8.3 points, 4.0 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game in three Summit League tournament contests. Johnston also expects forwards Mariah Clarin and Megan Stuart to make significant contributions this season. Clarin played in 24 games last season, averaging 2.8 points and 2.4 rebounds per game. Stuart, meanwhile, played in 22 games and averaged 1.9 points per contest. “This is one of the best and deepest groups of posts we’ve had,” Johnston said. “They all have different strengths and give us a great deal of flexibility to change our style depending on the opponent.” Another sophomore, Rachel Walters, provided the Jackrabbits with effective long-range shooting down the stretch last season. The Sioux Falls native went 8-for-16 from three-point range over the final five games of the season and finished fourth on the team with 24 three-pointers despite averaging only eight minutes per game. Completing the sophomore class is wing Megan Waytashek, who has played in only six games since January 2011 due to injury. Waytashek received an injury hardship and is working back to full strength. When healthy, Waytashek has been a versatile performer who can play either on the perimeter or on the block. The 2012-13 roster also includes three newcomers. Sophomore Anne Aamlid will add depth

at forward, while freshmen Chloe Cornemann and Jessica Hart will vie for playing time at the guard positions. “We’ve got a great mix of seniors, juniors, sophomores and freshmen,” Johnston said. Other new faces can be found on the coaching staff following the departures of assistants Chad Oletzke and Emilee Thiesse for head coaching positions in the Division II ranks. Stepping in to fill their roles are Mike Jewett and Carissa Nord. Jewett previously was head coach at Southwest Minnesota State and has extensive regional ties after previously serving as an assistant coach at both St. Cloud State and Augustana. Nord served as a graduate assistant during the 2011-12 season before being elevated to a fulltime position just before the start of the school year. “It has been fun to see the new energy we have as a staff this year,” Johnston said. As has been the case throughout their time in Division I, the Jackrabbits will play a challenging non-conference schedule – one that includes six games against fellow NCAA Tournament qualifiers. “We need to do better in November and December, and that’s going to be difficult with the schedule we play,” Johnston said. “But this schedule is exactly what I want it to be — every game we have a chance to win and every game we have a chance to lose.” Four of those games will be at Frost Arena, including a Nov. 18 matchup against nationally ranked Nebraska. The Jackrabbits also will host

Creighton, Middle Tennessee and Eastern Michigan, while traveling to Penn State and Georgetown. “Anytime we have had balance in our nonconference schedule we’ve been better,” Johnston said. Other non-conference matchups include road games at postseason qualifiers Central Michigan (WNIT) and Northern Iowa (WBI), along with a neutral-site game against WNIT qualifier Villanova in the season opener Nov. 10 at a tournament hosted by the University of Minnesota. The Summit League also has undergone changes with the departures of Oral Roberts and Southern Utah and the addition of NebraskaOmaha. In addition, the league has adopted mirror scheduling for the 2012-13 season, meaning most conference games will be played on Thursdays and Saturdays as opposed to the Saturday-Monday format of recent years. “I think the conference schedule works out well,” Johnston said, noting the travel within the league has been reduced and the team will have a regularly designated off day most weeks on Sunday. “The conference will be really balanced, very competitive,” said Johnston, who has guided the Jackrabbits to a 75-15 record and three league titles in regular season play since joining The Summit League at the start of the 2007-08 season. “Everybody in the league has a chance to be better this year. There will be no margin for error.”

FACILITIES

As the South Dakota State University women’s basketball team has grown into a championship-caliber team at the Division I level, so have the team’s facilities. Recent improvements included moving the team into a new locker room during the 2007-08 season as part of a Stanley J. Marshall HPER Center expansion project that included the addition of locker rooms for volleyball and women’s swimming. In the fall of 2008, a new team room and lounge opened on the lower level of the HPER Center, adjacent to Frost Arena. Team rooms play a vital role in allowing space to prepare for upcoming games, study between classes and to also gather as a team to form the bond that allows them to be champions on and off the court. Student-athlete facilities have been further enhanced with the completion of the Dykhouse Student-Athlete Center. Located in the north end zone of Coughlin-Alumni Stadium, the Dykhouse Student-Athlete Center houses an academic center for use by all Jackrabbit student-athletes, as well as a strength and conditioning center. Construction on the Dykhouse Student-Athlete Center marks the first stage of a master plan to dramatically modernize athletic facilities at SDSU. The $6 million donated by Sioux Falls bankers Dana Dykhouse and T. Denny Sanford in the fall of 2007 set in motion the construction of the first major athletic building on campus since Frost Arena in 1973. Future projects outlined in the master plan include a new practice arena for the Jackrabbit basketball teams, a new football stadium and fieldhouse. Top: A new women’s basketball team room and team lounge were completed in time for the 2008-09 season on the lower level of the Stanley J. Marshall HPER Center. Bottom: An academic center for all Jackrabbit student-athletes is housed in the Dykhouse Student-Athlete Center, which opened in the spring of 2010.

2012-13 JACKRABBIT BASKETBALL

The Jackrabbit women’s basketball team holds a decisive home-court advantage in Frost Arena, named after former Jackrabbit coach and athletic director R.B. “Jack” Frost.

FROST ARENA

Frost served as athletic director and professor and head of the physical education department from 1947 until 1960. He also was an international leader in recreation, health and physical education Frost Arena, which is part of the Stanley J. Marshall HPER Center, now seats approximately 6,100 fans for basketball. The addition of chair-back lower-level seating prior to the 1992-93 season, as well as the addition of chair-back seating in the lower level end zones and new student bleachers have reduced seating from the original all-bleacher capacity of 9,500. In the fall of 2005, Frost Arena was included with Coughlin-Alumni Stadium in a $3 million Daktronics scoreboard project. The Frost Arena portion includes a four-sided scoreboard with four ProStar® video screens measuring 12 feet by seven feet, two ProAd® displays measuring 60 feet long by four feet high and a new full-color digital ProTable® scorers table. Widely regarded as the finest arena with the best athletics atmosphere in the state, Frost Arena also is home to the Jackrabbit men’s basketball, volleyball and wrestling teams. It was the site of the 2003 NCAA Division II North Central Regional women’s basketball tournament. Postseason basketball returned to Frost Arena in 2007 as two rounds of the Women’s NIT were played in front of capacity crowds. Frost Arena also has been the site of six North Central Regional men’s basketball tournaments, four NCAA Division II Wrestling National Championships, as well as the South Dakota Class AA Girls’ Basketball State Tournament in 2006, 2009, 2011 and 2012. In addition, Frost Arena has been the site of graduation ceremonies, the annual Wacipi pow-wow, concerts and numerous other campus events.

Ground was broken Sept. 22, 1970, with the cornerstone placed by Gov. Richard Kneip on Oct. 2, 1971. Final cost of the building was $3,685,000, with the difference made up by gifts and donated items.

2012-13 JACKRABBIT BASKETBALL

ATTENDANCE South Dakota State University boasts one of the most loyal women’s basketball fan bases in the Upper Midwest. The Jackrabbits regularly play before large crowds at Frost Arena, drawing an average of more than 2,000 fans per game in five of the last six seasons. Twice in that span SDSU has averaged more than 2,500 fans — an average of 2,753 fans during the 2006-07 season and a program-record 2,803 fans during the 2008-09 campaign. During the 2011-12 season, average attendance jumped by more than 500 than the previous year, finishing at 2,403 fans per game as the Jackrabbits again claimed the Summit League regular season title. SDSU fans also have been the driving force behind record attendance at the Summit League Championships during their four-year run in Sioux Falls. The four-day tournament has set attendance records three times and will remain 50 miles down the road from the SDSU campus through the 2017 tournament.

The South Dakota State University women’s basketball program has gone through a seamless transition from competing at the NCAA Division II level to Division I. Since moving to the Division I level at the start of the 2004-05 season, the Jackrabbits have compiled a 166-66 record (.716 winning percentage) against D-I opponents. SDSU has not shied away from top-level competition, entering the 2012-13 season winning records against a number of conferences, including the Southeastern Conference, Missouri Valley, Sun Belt, Pac-12 and Horizon League. SDSU has made six consecutive appearances in a Division I postseason tournament.

The Innovation Campus at South Dakota State University is the state’s first and only university-affiliated research park. Located on 125 acres just east of campus, it provides an environment that will foster partnerships among the University, business, government and the community to grow the sciences and technology-based economy. SDSU is building a future for South Dakota, the nation, and the globe. The primary charge of the land-grant mission is to create opportunities for thestate through research and education. Research has been a vital part of SDSU since 1887 with the creation of the South Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station. Since that time, SDSU has been the reliable resource for research-based information and community leadership. Today, research provides a solid knowledge base for economic development, SDSU’s academic programs, and experiential opportunities for students. Funding from grants and contracts in FY 2010 has increased nearly fourfold since 2002. The University’s primary strengths include agriculture, engineering, human health and nutrition, renewable energy, pharmaceutical sciences, geospatial information sciences, environmental sciences and many other fields.

JACKRABBITS

EVOLUTION OF A NICKNAME

There are two theories as to how and why the Jackrabbit nickname evolved. The most common belief is that the name “Jackrabbits” came from a story and cartoon sketch that appeared in a Minneapolis newspaper following a 1905 football game between the University of Minnesota and South Dakota State College, as the university was then known. A reporter for the newspaper, knowing of the preponderance of jackrabbits in the Brookings area, was believed to have written that the SDSC team was as quick as jackrabbits. Many people believe that the school adopted the Jackrabbits as its official nickname from that beginning. The other theory about the origin of the nickname is given in The Jackrabbit, SDSU’s yearbook. There is a poem in the 1907 yearbook that puts forth the idea that the yearbook is called The Jackrabbit because a group of juniors wished to immortalize themselves by changing the name of the yearbook. Athletic teams followed suit, adopting the nickname. Prior to the adoption of the Jackrabbit nickname, school athletic teams were known as the Barn Yard Cadets as SDSU was known as South Dakota State College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts in 1907. 2012-13 JACKRABBIT WOMEN’S BASKETBALL MEDIA GUIDE

The South Dakota State University women’s basketball team has set a standard of excellence both on the court and in the classroom. The Jackrabbits began a string of three consecutive team grade-point average titles — not only in Division I but across all levels of women’s college basketball — in 2005-06 with a 3.730 team GPA. SDSU repeated with a mark of 3.693 in 2006-07 and claimed its third title with a 3.669 team GPA during the 2007-08 academic year. SDSU reclaimed the top spot in Division I for the fourth time, completing the 2010-11 academic year with a 3.666 team GPA. Overall, SDSU ranked second across all divisions of women’s college basketball. The Jackrabbits were one of five Division I teams to be recognized in the WBCA Academic Top 25 Team Honor Roll and to make an appearance in the 2012 NCAA Tournament. SDSU finished second in the D-I rankings with a 3.610 team GPA and 10th across across all divisions of women’s college basketball. “It was another successful year in the classroom for our program,” head coach Aaron Johnston said. “Year after year we have been at or near the top of the WBCA Academic Top 25 Honor Roll. SDSU is a great institution and clearly our university has an excellent plan in place for helping students excel academically.” In eight seasons competing for the Division I award, the Jackrabbits have finished no lower than third place in the D-I team GPA rankings and are the only program to post a top-10 finish in each season. The Jackrabbits finished second among Division I programs during the 2004-05 season with a 3.567 team GPA and again during the 2009-10 season with a 3.622 team GPA. The Jackrabbits also received recognition on the WBCA Academic Top 25 Team Honor Roll during the 1999-2000 and 2003-04 seasons while competing at the NCAA Division II level.

The Summit League Coach of the Year in each of the Jackrabbits’ first two seasons in the league and again during the 2011-12 season, Johnston was named a finalist for the 2009 Naismith Award as the nation’s top coach. SDSU tied a school record for victories in a season with 32 during the 2008-09 campaign and gained national attention by vaulting into the top 25 in December after non-conference victories over the likes of Wisconsin, Utah, Minnesota and Gonzaga (Wash.). The Jackrabbits were ranked in the final 13 USA Today/ESPN regular season coaches’ polls, climbing as high as 14th in the coaches' poll and 16th in the Associated Press poll. SDSU finished the 2008-09 season ranked 19th in the coaches’ poll. Along the way to a 32-3 overall record, the Jackrabbits received national media coverage from CBS Sports, USA Today, ESPN.com and The New York Times. Although the Jackrabbits came up short in their bid win a third consecutive Summit League regular season title during the 2009-10 season, third-seeded SDSU repeated as conference tournament champions by defeating topseeded Oral Roberts, 79-75, in overtime. SDSU’s second consecutive NCAA Tournament bid marked its fourth consecutive postseason appearance at the Division I level. Despite an up-and-down regular season during the 2010-11 campaign, SDSU became the first Summit League team to win three consecutive postseason tournament titles, claiming the 2011 championship with a 61-54 victory over Oakland (Mich.). The Jackrabbits rebounded from a 4-9 start to win eight in a row and 11 of 12 games, entering an NCAA Tournament matchup at Xavier (Ohio) with a 19-13 overall record. The Jackrabbits returned to the top of the Summit League during the 2011-12 campaign, winning the regular season title with a 16-2 mark in league play. SDSU continued its mastery in the Summit League postseason tournament, recording a 78-77 overtime victory over UMKC for its fourth consecutive tourney title. The Jackrabbits trailed by as many as 17 points before rallying. Johnston laid the foundation to a successful transition to Division I by leading SDSU to three consecutive NCAA Division II Elite Eight appearances, including the first national championship in the program’s history during the 2002-03 season. During their championship run, which culminated with a 65-50 victory over Northern Kentucky in the NCAA Division II championship game in St. Joseph, Mo., the Jackrabbits compiled a school-record 32 wins against just three losses. SDSU also earned a share of its first-ever North Central Conference title with a 14-2 record in league play. After leading SDSU to unprecedented success, Johnston was named the 2003 Molten/Women’s Division II Bulletin Coach of the Year. The Jackrabbits attained much of the same success in the 2003-04 season, earning a share of their second consecutive North Central Conference title and winning the North Central Regional for the third consecutive year. SDSU finished the 2003-04 season with a 26-7 mark, falling to eventual national champion California (Pa.) in the first round of the NCAA Division II Elite Eight. With South Dakota State moving up to NCAA Division I during the 2004-05 season, the Johnston-led Jackrabbits posted their fourth consecutive 20-win season, finishing with a 21-7 record. That mark included an 8-7 record against Division I opponents, highlighted by victories over NCAA Tournament qualifier Middle Tennessee State and Southeastern Conference opponents Alabama and Kentucky. The Jackrabbits continued their rise in the Division I ranks with a 19-9 record in 2005-06, then put together a breakthrough campaign during the 2006-07 season by posting a 25-6 overall record and becoming the first team in transition to reach the postseason, reaching the quarterfinals of the Women’s NIT. SDSU won WNIT home games against Illinois State and Indiana before falling at Wyoming. Johnston led the Jackrabbits into another new era as South Dakota State began play in The Summit League during the 2007-08 season. SDSU continued its run of success by winning the Summit League regular season title — the program's first outright conference championship. The Jackrabbits completed a 16-2 mark in league play and

COACH JOHNSTON 23-7 overall record for their sixth 20-win season in Johnston’s eight years as head coach. The Jackrabbits posted a 12-game winning streak to conclude conference play and earn their second consecutive berth in the WNIT. However, SDSU's home-court advantage was not enough as the Jackrabbits fell to a hot-shooting Creighton (Neb.) squad, 76-69, in the tournament’s first round. SDSU repeated as Summit League regular season champions during the 2008-09 season, improving by one game to a 17-1 record in league play. The Jackrabbits went into the Summit League Championships as the No. 1 seed and lived up to their billing by winning the conference tournament in Sioux Falls, S.D., with three double-digit victories. SDSU overcame a 14-point halftime deficit in the championship game, rallying for a 79-69 victory over Oakland (Mich.). With their conference tournament victory, the Jackrabbits became only the second team to earn a berth in the NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament in its first year of eligibility. Seventh-seeded SDSU opened NCAA Tournament play in Lubbock, Texas, with a 90-55 victory over Texas Christian, tying a school and tournament record with 16 three-pointers. The Jackrabbits were on the verge on reaching the Sweet 16 before falling in the final seconds to second-seeded Baylor (Texas), 60-58. During their first three seasons at the Division I level, the Jackrabbits dominated the independent ranks by posting a 19-2 overall record against fellow D-I independents, including an 18-0 record the last two seasons. In both the 2005-06 and 2006-07 seasons Johnston was honored as the Division I Independent Women’s Basketball Coach of the Year. Johnston first became associated with the Jackrabbit women’s basketball team when he spent the 1999-2000 season as assistant coach under Nancy Neiber. After Neiber took a leave of absence late in the season, Johnston coached the Jackrabbits to a 4-2 record in the final six games of the season as as SDSU finished the season with a 19-8 overall record, 11-7 in NCC play. One of the Jackrabbits’ victories was over second-ranked and eventual national runner-up North Dakota State. When the interim label was removed from his title on June 30, 2000, Johnston became the seventh head coach in the modern era of South Dakota State University women’s basketball, which began in 1967. In the 2000-01 season, his first full season as Jackrabbit head coach, Johnston led SDSU to a 15-12 overall record. That mark included a North Central Conference record of 9-9, which earned the Jackrabbits a berth in the seven-team Wells Fargo Finals conference postseason tournament. During the 2001-02 season, Johnston led a Jackrabbit squad which included just two seniors and nine freshmen to SDSU’s first-ever appearance in the NCAA Division II Elite Eight. The Jackrabbits compiled a 28-9 record, setting a then-school record for wins in a season. Not only have Johnston's teams performed well on the court, they have excelled in the classroom. The Jackrabbits have finished no worse than third among Division I programs in the Women's Basketball Coaches Association's Academic Top 25 Team Honor Roll the past seven seasons, and led all divisions of women's basketball in team grade-point average four times — three consecutive seasons (2005-06, 2006-07 and 2007-08) and again during the 2010-11 season. A native of Pine Island, Minn., “A.J.” earned a bachelor’s degree in health and physical education from Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minn. After serving one year as an assistant coach at North Dakota State College of Science in Wahpeton, he moved on to SDSU as a graduate assistant for the Jackrabbit men’s basketball team for two seasons before becoming assistant women’s coach. He also coached the SDSU golf teams one year. He and his wife, Laurie, are the parents of a son, Dylan, who was born in May 2011, and an infant daughter, Laney.

STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING OVERVIEW South Dakota State University Strength and Conditioning strives to enhance the athletic development of more than 400 student-athletes, working to accomplish this goal through the integration of performance variables that meet the demands of each individual sport. Performance variables include mobility, strength, flexibility, power, linear and lateral speed; as well as developing the necessary energy systems to compete at the highest level. Through the enhancement of these performance variables the goal is to decrease the incident of injury and ensure the durability of Jackrabbit student-athletes.

The SDSU Strength and Conditioning staff accomplishes these goals through the use of the Dykhouse Student-Athlete Weight Room and the Stanley J. Marshall HPER Center Student-Athlete Weight Room. Both of these facilities include a variety of training equipment ranging from Olympic lifting platforms and power racks to stability balls and cable machines. The convenience that the two student-athlete weight rooms provide ensures all 21 varsity sports can be accommodated. In addition, the two student-athlete weight rooms, allow the staff to provide the best training environment for each individual sport and athlete.

ADMINISTRATION

DR. DAVID L. CHICOINE • President avid L. Chicoine, Ph.D., has served as the 19th president of South Dakota State University on January 1, 2007, becoming the third alumnus to lead the state’s largest institution of higher education. President Chicoine, who graduated in 1969 with a bachelor of science in agribusiness, also holds an appointment as professor in the Department of Economics.

D

President Chicoine has a long association with intercollegiate athletics, and is currently serving a four-year term on the NCAA Presidential Advisory Group. Chicoine also serves as chair of the President’s Council for The Summit League — SDSU’s conference home for 18 of its 21 varsity sports — during the 2011-12 academic year, after filling the role of vice chair for two years. Previously, Chicoine served as the faculty representative to the Big Ten Conference and the National Collegiate Athletics Association (NCAA) for the University of Illinois at UrbanaChampaign. He served as chair of the Budget and Finance Committee for the Big Ten Conference for nine years of his 11-year term. Alma Mater: • South Dakota State, 1969

Upon his arrival at SDSU, President Chicoine implemented an aggressive strategic plan — “Achieving National Distinction, Strengthening Local Relevance.” The plan has four goals: enhancing academic excellence, fostering economic growth, expanding the reach of the university, and creating a sustainable financial resource. During his tenure, enrollment has reached record levels of undergraduate students and Ph.D. candidates. Correspondingly, the amount of research grants and contract awards has jumped nearly 90 percent during that time, and research expenditures will exceed $60 million in the 2010-2011 academic year. To support the strategic plan, the SDSU Foundation in 2008 launched an aggressive comprehensive fund-raising effort — “It Starts with State: A Campaign for South Dakota State University” — with a goal of $200 million. The most visible support for the campaign can be seen in several construction and renovation projects funded primarily by generous donors, all part of the largest campus building boom since the 1960s. The majority of the facilities enhance the university’s research capabilities and allow for new discoveries that drive technology-based economic development in South Dakota. Building a better academic model has also been part of President Chicoine’s agenda. In the fall of 2010, SDSU launched the state’s first architecture program through its College of Arts and Sciences. The program, created without any new state funding, will place a special emphasis on sustainable and renewable design practices. The Chicoine administration also developed the new College of Education and Human Sciences in 2009, a merger of the former College of Education and Counseling, College of Family and Consumer Sciences and the Department of Health and Physical Education. It represented the first significant academic restructuring in more than 40 years. Dr. Chicoine brought more than 30 years of experience in higher education with the University of Illinois to his role as president of SDSU. He is a nationally recognized economist, specializing in public finance, taxation, and rural economics. His higher education administrative experience includes service as Head of the Department of Agricultural Economics and Dean of the College of Agriculture, Consumer and Environmental Sciences, at the University of Illinois. He has co-authored four books, 12 book chapters and more than 100 invited and/or peer reviewed academic journal articles. Dr. Chicoine served as an advisor to the Illinois General Assembly on tax issues, farmland property tax assessments, public finance and rural economic issues. He served as a member of the Illinois Governor’s Council of Economic Advisors, and was a member of the board of the Illinois State Treasurer’s Technology Development Fund. Chicoine received an M.S. in agricultural econcomics from the University of Delaware in 1971, and completed an M.A. in economics at Western Illinois University. In 1979, he completed his Ph.D. in agricultural economics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The president and his wife, Marcia, live in Woodbine Cottage on the SDSU campus. Their family includes son, Joshua, a Chicago-based musician; daughter-in-law Laura Ellsworth; granddaughter Sylvie; grandson Watson, and their late son, Jason. 2012-13 JACKRABBIT WOMEN’S BASKETBALL MEDIA GUIDE

JUSTIN SELL • Athletic Director Justin Sell has moved Jackrabbit Athletics forward in a number of areas of its Division I pursuits since being introduced as the 12th director of athletics at South Dakota State University on May 7, 2009. At South Dakota State, Sell oversees the Jackrabbits’ 21-sport Division I varsity athletics program. Eighteen SDSU teams compete in The Summit League, while football competes in the Missouri Valley Football Conference of the Football Championship Subdivision, and wrestling is a member of the Western Wrestling Conference. Women’s equestrian competes under the National Collegiate Equestrian Association banner.

Fourth Year Alma Mater: • Bowling Green (Ohio), 1991

During his first three years, the Jackrabbits displayed success across the board, winning both the Summit League Commissioner’s Cup — the league’s all-sports championship — and the Summit League Sportsmanship Award during the 2010-11 school year. Individually, SDSU has claimed two Summit League regular season titles in men’s cross country (2009, 2010) and women’s soccer (2009, 2011), as well as regular season league titles in baseball (2010) and women’s basketball (2012). In addition, the women’s basketball team won three Summit League postseason tournament titles from 2010-12, the men’s basketball team claimed a tournament title in 2012, and the Jackrabbit football team reached the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs for the first time in 2009. Sell also has implemented aggressive marketing and fundraising initiatives which resulted in record average attendance for football during the 2009 season, as well as the highest number of donors and dollars donated to the Jackrabbit Club. Ticket sales totaled more than $1 million for the first time during the 2011-12 academic year. In the classroom, Jackrabbit student-athletes have excelled, posting a cumulative 3.195 grade-point average during the 2011-12 academic year. Fifteen of the Jackrabbits' 17 varsity teams included in the report — cross country and track and field are combined into one team each for men and women — compiled team GPAs of 3.00 or higher. Women's basketball posted the highest cumulative team GPA at 3.685, followed by women's tennis at 3.523, as all nine varsity women's teams eclipsed the 3.0 mark. Individually, 269 of 455 Jackrabbit student-athletes — 59 percent — posted a GPA of 3.0 or higher during the spring semester. Of that group, 146 recorded a GPA of 3.5 or higher and 57 had a perfect 4.0 GPA during the spring term. Born in Salem, Ore., and raised in Columbus, Ohio, Sell most recently served as senior associate athletic director at the University of Northern Iowa. His primary duties at the Cedar Falls-based university included sport management, oversight of the athletic business office, facilities, game management, summer camps and human resources, while also assisting in fundraising and corporate sponsorships. In his previous roles as an assistant and associate athletic director at UNI, Sell managed facility operations and the planning of capital projects, including the $26 million McLeod Center and the $7 million Human Performance Center. He also oversaw the UNI-Dome budget and was responsible for developing a revenue generation team to enhance marketing, development and ticket income during his 10 years with the Panthers. Aside from his duties at UNI, Sell was active in the community as president of the Cedar Valley Sports and Entertainment Commission. The commission has been the driving force behind bringing several major concerts and sporting events to the Waterloo-Cedar Falls area, including the National Wrestling Coaches Association National Duals and several youth tournaments. Prior to joining the staff at UNI, Sell worked four years at Villanova University (Pa.), where he was an assistant director of athletic facilities and intramural director before being named director of ticket operations. Sell earned his bachelor’s degree in sport management from Bowling Green State University (Ohio) in 1991 and completed a master’s degree in physical education/sport administration at The Ohio State University in 1992. He and his wife, Jennie, are the parents of four children: Abbie (16), Zach (15), Josh (12) and Eric (11).

SUMMIT LEAGUE PRESEASON POLL After capturing its record fourth-straight tournament title and third regular season title in five years, South Dakota State was tabbed as the 2012-13 women’s basketball preseason favorite. The Jackrabbits collected 22 first-place votes and 330 points in voting conducted by the league’s head coaches, sports information directors and media. Oakland’s Bethany Watterworth was selected as the preseason Player of the Year. Last season’s Summit League Tournament finalist, Kansas City, placed second in the poll with 260 points and one first-place vote. Oakland, North Dakota State and IUPUI were separated by just 21 points for the third through fifth slots with the Jaguars claiming one firstplace tally. South Dakota edged out Western Illinois for sixth place while Fort Wayne and league newcomer Omaha rounded out the poll. The Mastodons collected the final first-place vote. Watterworth, an all-league first team selection each of the last two years and second team honoree as a freshman in 2010, was the preseason selection for Player of the Year after scoring a team-high 18.7 points and grabbing 5.4 rebounds per game. The forward/center heads into the season ranked 14th in league history in career scoring (1,502 points) and leads an Oakland squad that returns three starters for head coach Beckie Francis. Joining Watterworth on the first team are Kansas City teammates Kim Nezianya, an alltournament team honoree, and Eilise O’Connor. The duo helped lead the Kangaroos to just their second appearance all-time in the championship game last year. An all-league first teamer last season, IUPUI’s Kerah Nelson captured a spot on the preseason first team, while North Dakota State’s Katie Birkel and South Dakota State’s Ashley Eide also earned the distinction. The second team is highlighted by returning Newcomer of the Year Saule Kontautaite of Western Illinois. She is accompanied by North Dakota State’s Janae Burich, a second team all-

league selection, IUPUI’s Katie Comello, Oakland’s Zakiya Minifee and Omaha’s Paige Frauendorfer. The Summit League concluded a record-setting season a year ago finishing the year ranked No. 19 in the College Basketball News RPI, peaking as high as No. 11 midseason. The league sent a record four teams to postseason tournaments and set a new women’s league tournament attendance record. The regular season begins Nov. 9, with the 16game, double round-robin league schedule starting Dec. 28. The 2013 Summit League Women’s Basketball Championship will be March 9-12 at the Sioux Falls Arena in Sioux Falls, S.D.

THE SUMMIT LEAGUE#thesummitleague

IUPUI’s Chen Ni became the first female in Summit League history to win two NCAA Championships, after winning the platform dive in 2010 and 2012. As The Summit League enters its fourth decade of Division I athletics, the performance level continues to rise to higher standards. A memorable 2011-12 campaign celebrated numerous record-setting and remarkable achievements for The Summit League, its member schools and student-athletes during the league’s 30th anniversary season. “Ascending” and “improving” are common adjectives used in media coverage of The Summit League as it continues its renaissance. Consisting of nine member institutions with over 3,000 studentathletes competing in 19 championship sports, The Summit League has enjoyed unprecedented success and development in recent history. Since rebranding as The Summit League in 2007, the league has produced 54 All-Americans, 37 Academic All-America selections and seven NCAA Championships. In the past seven seasons, Summit League teams have achieved final national rankings in six different sports, won NCAA regional championships in two sports and advanced in three additional NCAA team championship tournaments. That level of success carries into both the classroom and athletic competition.

Record-Setting 2011-12 Season In 2011-12 alone, The Summit League nearly doubled its all-time NCAA Champions total by claiming four national titles. IUPUI’s Chen Ni became the first female to win multiple NCAA crowns when she claimed her second platform diving championship in three seasons. The Summit League produced its most successful NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships to date when its student-athletes won three titles. Southern Utah’s Cameron Levins, one of three finalists for the prestigious Bowerman Award, won the 10,000-meter and 5,000-meter races and became The Summit League’s first studentathlete to finish first in multiple events at a single championship. Oral Roberts’ Jack Whitt gave the league its third title when he won the pole vault competition. Two additional student-athletes collected NCAA statistical championships as Oakland’s Reggie Hamilton became The Summit League’s first men’s basketball national scoring leader and Western Illinois’ Sammy Marshall was softball’s national leader in stolen bases per game. The Summit League’s growth and success is most evident at the annual Basketball Championships. Its 2012 event set a record for total attendance, including the all-time highest women’s tournament figure and the third-best overall men’s draw. The last four tournaments occupy each of the top four all-time tournament attendance totals in league history. Popularity of The Summit League’s marquee event reaches beyond the arena. The 2012 Basketball Championships marked the first time in league history that all 14 men’s and women’s tournament games

66

appeared on national cable television. Since 2009, every tournament game has been televised, including the men’s championship on ESPN2 and the women’s title game on ESPNU. Men’s Basketball enjoyed a stellar season on and off the court. The Summit League finished 2011-12 with its highest RPI ranking in history, placing 16th among Division I conferences after peaking as high as No. 11 earlier in the season. A record five teams played in national postseason tournaments with one, Oakland, making the deepest run in league history with three wins and a semifinal appearance in the CollegeInsider.com Tournament. The league-wide success translated to unprecedented fan support and an all-time best home attendance figure. Throughout the 2011-12 season, The Summit League measured up well against men’s basketball leagues across the country and finished with a .500 or better record against 15 of the 17 midmajor conferences. Against both Division I and overall non-league competition, The Summit League amassed its highest victory total and posted its best winning percentage on record. Under the national spotlight, The Summit League was one of only two conferences with multiple participating teams to post perfect records in nationallytelevised BracketBuster games. In women’s athletics, The Summit League sent a record four teams to compete in national women’s basketball postseason tournaments, including an all-time high three in the WNIT. The volleyball season saw The Summit League ranked as high as No. 13 among the 33 Division I leagues in the Pablo Ranking system. With three national champions and the two-highest placing teams in league history at the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships, The Summit League solidified itself as one of the national leaders in the sport. During the Indoor season, The Summit League finished ninth among men’s Division I leagues in the final USTFCCCA conference index. A combined 12 men’s and women’s Indoor and Outdoor AllAmerica honors went to Summit League student-athletes. The Summit League emphasizes a balance of outstanding athletics and academics. The NCAA honored a record 15 Summit League teams for APR success that included finishing among the top 10 percent for their sport. Individually, North Dakota State’s Amy Anderson continued to garner recognition as one of the NCAA’s top student-athletes by earning the National Golf Coaches Association’s Dinah Shore Trophy recognizing achievement in athletic performance, grade point average and community service. Similar honors went to IUPUI’s men’s soccer standout Perez Agaba, who earned selection to the Lowe’s Senior CLASS All-America team. A total of seven Summit League student-athletes were named to their sport’s Capital One Academic All-America teams, includes three first team honorees.

Origins and Evolution In 1982, the present-day Summit League was formed by commissioner F.L. “Frosty” Ferzacca as the Association of MidContinent Universities with eight schools competing in five championship sports at the Division I level. Later known as the

THE SUMMIT LEAGUE

SUMMIT LEAGUE MEMBERSHIP

One of the Summit League’s most iconic moments came when Valparaiso’s Bryce Drew hit “the shot”, a game-winning three-pointer at the buzzer, to top Mississippi in the first round of the 1998 NCAA Tournament. Valpo’s story captivated the nation as they became the league’s second team to reach the “Sweet 16.” Mid-Continent Conference, The Summit League has grown to a combined enrollment of over 144,000 students at nine universities, four of which are based in top-58 U.S. metro populations (Detroit, Indianapolis, Kansas City and Omaha). The Summit League’s two newest members, South Dakota and Nebraska Omaha, compete together for the first time in 2012-13. Admitted to the league in 2009, USD completed its initial year of league competition in 2011-12 and is eligible for all championships this season. UNO joined the league in 2011 and is in its first year of Summit League competition before becoming fully eligible for all sport championships in 2015-16. Current Summit League member institutions include: IPFW (Indiana-Purdue-Fort Wayne), IUPUI (Indiana University-Purdue University-Indianapolis), UMKC (University of MissouriKansas City), the University of Nebraska Omaha, North Dakota State University, Oakland University, the University of South Dakota, South Dakota State University, and Western Illinois University. Eastern Illinois University competes as an associate member in swimming and diving and men’s soccer and Oral Roberts University is an associate member for men’s soccer. These member institutions pride themselves on providing quality athletic, academic and social experiences for their student-athletes. The Summit League sponsors 19 championship sports: baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s golf, men’s and women’s soccer, softball, men’s and women’s swimming and diving, men’s and women’s indoor track and field, men’s and women’s outdoor track and field, men’s and women’s tennis, and volleyball. The league champion receives an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament in all applicable sports. Since its inception in 1982, The Summit League has had several transcendent moments on the national stage. In 1986, Cleveland State upset third-seeded Indiana in the first round of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament on its way to a berth in the Sweet 16. A decade later, Valparaiso captured the nation’s attention when Bryce Drew hit “the shot” to topple No. 4 seed Mississippi in an NCAA first-round game that sparked its 1998 Sweet 16 run. More recently, Oral Roberts’ baseball program finished the 2004 campaign with a nationalranking and became the first Summit League school to reach an NCAA Super Regional in 2006. Three years later in 2009, North Dakota State became the league’s first softball team to win an NCAA regional and advance to the Super Regional round. During the 2008-09 basketball season, South Dakota State’s women’s team was nationally-ranked throughout the year and capped its season with an NCAA Tournament first round victory. The League has produced nine NCAA champions, four Olympic medalists and numerous All-Americans in the sports of track and field, swimming and diving and cross country. Several professional athletes and draft choices have come directly from The Summit League, including three Major League Baseball first round picks, a pair of NBA first round choices, and one WNBA selection. Former Summit Leaguer Kevin Duckworth (NBA) was a two-time all-star during his professional career. To coincide with The Summit League’s 30th Anniversary Season, the league released a list of its Top 30 Distinguished Contributors from the Division I era as selected by a panel of voters from member schools and media. Four individual NCAA champions and three Olympic medalists along with four NBA players and two World Series Champions headlined The Summit League’s list of top student-athletes, coaches and administrators that was the jewel of the anniversary celebration.

2012-13 JACKRABBIT WOMEN’S BASKETBALL MEDIA GUIDE


SEASON REVIEW


2011-12 SEASON RECAP Another year, another trip to the NCAA Tournament for the South Dakota State University women’s basketball team. The Jackrabbits reclaimed the top spot in The Summit League regular season standings for the third time in five years and claimed their fourth consecutive postseason tournament crown during the 2011-12 campaign. SDSU received contributions up and down its lineup as it notched its 26th consecutive winning season.Seniors Jennie Sunnarborg and Jill Young led the way, with both players reaching the 1,000-point milestone during the season. Young reached the 1,000-point plateau first, reaching the milestone in a Nov. 20 win over Washington State. Sunnarborg eclipsed the mark as she scored a career-high 31 points in a Jan. 14 home victory over Kansas City. The Jackrabbits opened the season with three home wins to start the campaign with a 3-1 record. SDSU then hit a couple bumps in the road during the Cancun Challenge in Mexico as they struggled offensively in losses to Cincinnati (Ohio) and Marist (N.Y.). The 55-22 defeat at the hands of Cincinnati marked the lowest scoring output by a Jackrabbit team since the shot clock and three-point line were implemented. The start of conference play proved to be the remedy as the Jackrabbits opened the Summit League season with a pair of road wins to close out November and open December. SDSU began the slate with a convincing 82-56 win at Western Illinois, followed by a hard-fought 7463 victory in Indianapolis against IUPUI. The Jackrabbits returned to non-conference action in which four of five games were against eventual NCAA Tournament qualifiers. SDSU swept a home-and-home series from ArkansasLittle Rock in the span of 10 days. The rest of the three games all resulted in losses — to NCAA qualifiers Kansas State and Nebraska and at Marquette (Wis.). The 63-46 loss to Kansas State proved to be the lone home loss of the season for the Jackrabbits. SDSU closed out the calendar year with its first two home conference games of the season. The Jackrabbits pushed their league record to 4-0 with a 62-52 win over Oakland on Dec. 29 before scoring an 81-58 vicotry over Fort Wayne on New Year’s Eve. The Jackrabbits would suffer their first league loss Jan. 7 at two-time defending regular season champion Oral Roberts. SDSU let a lead slip away down the stretch, falling 71-65 in their final trip to Tulsa, Okla. From there, South Dakota State seized control of the Summit League race, reeling off nine consecutive victories. The streak begain Jan. 9 at Southern Utah and lasted more than a month. Five of the victories came on the road, culminating with a thriilling 79-73 come-from-behind

SOUTH DAKOTA STATE made its fourth consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance during the 2011-12 season. victory at Kansas City on Feb. 11. SDSU trailed by as many as 15 points in the first half and a dozen at halftime before rallying behind double-doubles from Sunnarborg (16 points, 13 rebounds) and Ashley Eide (10-10). Playing a large role in the Jackrabbit victory was their free throw shooting; SDSU made 23-of-24 attempts at the line in the second half. The streak came to an end Feb. 13, when the Jackrabbits made their first appearance at the University of South Dakota since the 2003-04 season. SDSU led most of the night before the Coyotes rallied late to force overtime. The extra session belonged to USD, which won 59-53. The Jackrabbits were dominant the remainder of the regular season, winning their final three games — all at Frost Arena — by an average of 33 points. SDSU throttled North Dakota State, 88-43, on the back end of a doubleheader with the men’s team on Feb. 18 before scoring a 6652 victory over IUPUI a week later to earn the outright league championship. SDSU reached the century mark in its regular season finale, putting up 101 in a 40-point win over Western Illinois. The scene shifted south 50 miles for the Summit League Championship in Sioux Falls March 3-6. Top-seeded SDSU opened the fourday event with a meeting against Fort Wayne. The Jackrabbits closed the first half on a 12-2 run and cruised to an 80-59 victory over the Mastodons. Two days later, the Jackrabbits faced a scrappy IUPUI squad for the third time. SDSU overcame a slow start and the loss of starting guard Steph Paluch to a knee injury to advance to the title game with a 79-54 win. Young made all four of her three-point attempts in the second half en route to a game-high 14 points. The championship game pitted SDSU against

Kansas City on March 6. Just as they had in their last regular season meeting, the Jackrabbits found themselves in a huge deficit early on. UMKC led by as many as 17 points in the final minutes of the first half only to see the Jacks close the first stanza with an 11-3 run to draw to within 36-27 at the half. The Kangaroo lead quickly evaporated completely as SDSU scored the first nine points of the second half to draw even. The game would be tied six more times, including 67-all at the end of regulation. In overtime, Kansas City led 77-76 after a basket by Eilise O’Connor with 33 seconds remaining. With seven seconds left, Young was fouled and calmly sank both free throws to give the Jackrabbits a 78-77 lead. A contested shot at the buzzer by the Kangaroos came up empty, sending SDSU to its fourth consecutive NCAA Tournament and keeping the Jackrabbits undefeated in Summit League postseason play at 12-0. The Jackrabbits’ postseason aspirations came to an end at the hands of Purdue’s Courtney Moses on March 17 in West Lafayette, Ind. Moses drained a tournament-record nine threepointers en route to 29 points as the fourthseeded Boilermakers knocked off SDSU, 83-68. Young led the Jackrabbits with 19 points, while Sunnarborg tallied 17 in their final games as a Jackrabbit. With four three-pointers, Young finished with a school- and Summit Leaugerecord 305 career three-pointers. The Mitchell native also finished fourth in three-point percentage (41.7 percent) and tied for second in free throw shooting (90.5 percent) among Division I players during the 2011-12 season. She also finished 15th in career scoring at SDSU with 1,356 points. Sunnarborg finished 23rd with 1,232 points.

SIOUX FALLS — South Dakota State’s quest for a fourth consecutive Summit League tournament title got off to a rousing start as the Jackrabbit women’s basketball team posted an 80-59 victory over IPFW at the Sioux Falls Arena. The Jackrabbits, who won for the 13th time in 14 games, improved to 22-8 overall. IPFW ended its season at 9-21 overall. The Mastodons’ Stephanie Rosado scored the first two baskets of the game before SDSU gained control behind the bench tandem of Tara Heiser and Katie Lingle. The duo combined for eight points as the Jackrabbits gained an 11-7 lead just before the under-12-minute media timeout. A putback basket and three-pointer by reserve Gabrielle Boever built the Jackrabbit lead to nine and a Heiser triple pushed the margin to 33-16 late in the first half. SDSU's bench players accounted for 18 first-half points as the Jackrabbits led 35-18 at halftime. Steph Paluch connected on a three-pointer on SDSU’s opening possession of the second half to increase the lead to 20 at 38-18. IPFW reeled off the next seven points, but could get no closer than 13 the rest of the way as the Jackrabbits responded with an 8-0 run. Four Jackrabbits scored in double figures, with Jennie Sunnarborg leading the way with 14 points. Paluch tallied 13 points, while Lingle added 12 and Heiser chipped in with a season-high 10. The Jackrabbits finished the game 30-of-56 from the field, 53.6 percent, including 11-of-18 on three-point attempts. SDSU did struggle at the line, however, going 9-of-17 for 52.9 percent. SDSU dominated the rebounding category, 41-23. Leah Dietel, Sunnarborg and Lingle all shared team-high honors with six rebounds. Dietel also contributed a career-high six assists. IPFW was led by Amanda Hyde with 19 points and six rebounds. Rosado finished with 17 points, while Sarah Haluska added 10. The Mastodons ended the game 19-of-53 from the field, 35.8 percent, including 5-of-19 on three-point attempts. IPFW was a perfect 16-of-16 at the line.

SIOUX FALLS — Four South Dakota State players scored in double figures as the Jackrabbit women’s basketball team shook off a sluggish start to defeat IUPUI, 79-54, and advance to the Summit League championship game for the fourth consecutive year. The top-seeded Jackrabbits won for the 14th time in 15 games to improve to 23-8 overall. Fifth-seeded IUPUI ended its season 13-19. SDSU turned the ball over on three of its first four possessions and trailed 16-15 with 8 minutes and 17 seconds remaining in the first half after a Kerah Nelson free throw. The Jackrabbits regained the lead on a three-pointer by reserve guard Gabrielle Boever and led 20-16 after a steal and layup by Steph Paluch, who was injured on the play. The momentum further shifted in SDSU’s favor with an 8-0 spurt late in the half keyed by a traditional three-point play by Paluch’s replacement, Tara Heiser, and Boever’s second three-pointer of the half. For the second tournament game in a row, Boever established a new career high in scoring with 10 of her 12 points coming in the first half to help the Jackrabbits to a 34-24 halftime advantage. Behind the three-point shooting of senior Jill Young, the Jackrabbits quickly put the game out of reach after intermission. Young nailed three consecutive three-point attempts in the first 2:02 of the second half to put SDSU up 45-27. Young made it 4-for-4 in the half with a triple from the left corner to put SDSU up 54-34. Young scored all of her game-high 14 points in the second half and added a team-high eight rebounds as the Jackrabbits held a 51-34 advantage on the boards. Jennie Sunnarborg tallied 13 points, with Ashley Eide rounding out the double-figure scorers for SDSU with a dozen points, six rebounds, five assists and three steals. SDSU finished 29-of-66 from the field, 43.9 percent, including 9-of-25 from three-point range. At the line, the Jackrabbits made 12-of-16 attempts, 75 percent. Nelson, an all-Summit League performer, led the Jaguars with 13 points and nine rebounds, followed by 12 points by Emily Phillips and 10 from Dawn Luster.

SUMMIT LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP Game 32 • Sioux Falls Arena (5,460)

UMKC SOUTH DAKOTA STATE

77 78

March 6, 2012 • Summit League Championship

SIOUX FALLS — A pair of free throws by Jill Young with seven seconds to play in overtime gave South Dakota State University its fourth straight championship at the Summit League women's basketball tournament Tuesday afternoon. The Jackrabbits, 24-8 for the season and league regular season champions, defeated No. 3 seed Missouri-Kansas City 78-77 to earn the league's automatic bid to the NCAA tournament. UMKC rallied from a 62-56 deficit to force an overtime when Brianna Eldridge tied the game with a layup with one minute to play. SDSU missed two three-point attempts and UMKC missed a shot before regulation ended. In the extra session, UMKC went ahead 73-71 on two free throws by Eilise O’Connor. The Jacks regained the lead on a layup by Leah Dietel, who was fouled on the play and hit the free throw for a 74-73 advantage. The Jackrabbits stretched the margin to three on a driving basket by Tara Heiser. But back-to-back baskets by O’Connor put UMKC back on top 77-76 before Young made the deciding free throws. UMKC opened the game with a 9-0 run on three layups by Kim Nezianya and a three-point basket by Dayon Hall-Jones, and pushed the margin to 19-6 on a layup by Jade Tinner at the 12:15 mark. SDSU, which made only two of its first 14 field goal attempts, closed within seven, at 23-16, following a layup by Heiser, but the Kangaroos scored the next 10 points to open a 33-16 lead when Emile Blakesly nailed a three-pointer with 3:07 to play. SDSU cut the margin to nine when Gabby Boever hit a three-pointer with three seconds left, making it 36-27 at the half. The Jackrabbits carried the momentum into the first two minutes of the second half, tying the game at 36-all on a three-pointer by Ashley Eide. The Jacks got their first lead on another three-pointer by Eide with 12:30 to go, making it 45-44. Young, a senior guard, went 4-for-4 at the line in the overtime period and finished with 13 points, sharing the team lead with Eide. Jennie Sunnarborg had 12 points and nine rebounds and Heiser, starting in place of injured Steph Paluch, added 12. UMKC senior Dayon Hall-Jones took game scoring honors with 27 points, hitting 11-of-26 field goal attempts with four three-pointers. Nezianya added a 17-point, 12-rebound double-double while O'Connor finished with 11 points. UMKC had five more field goals than SDSU, 32-27, but the Jacks hit 12 three-point shots — three by Young — and were 12-of-16 at the foul line while UMKC was just 4-for-8. SDSU shot 42.2 percent (27-of-64) for the game, while UMKC checked in at 44.4 percent (32-of-72). UMKC had a 46-37 rebound advantage, but the Jacks won the battle of the boards 22-21 after intermission. The game was tied 11 times and there were five lead changes. While SDSU has won every Summit League tournament it has played in since becoming NCAA Division I and is now 12-0 in tourney play, it was only the second championship game appearance for the Kangaroos, who were also runner-up in 2005. UMKC dropped to 22-11 overall, losing to SDSU three times. Sunnarborg was named tournament most valuable player and was joined on the five-player squad by Young. UMKC was represented by Hall-Jones and Nezianya, while Western Illinois’ Valencia Kelly rounded out the team.

ACADEMIC AWARDS The South Dakota State women’s basketball team continued to make the grade during the 2011-12 season. Besides ranking second for team grade-point average among Division I programs, the Jackrabbits received additional recognition from the NCAA and Summit League. The women’s basketball squad was one of four Jackrabbit teams honored by the NCAA in June with an NCAA Public Recognition Award. The honor is given to teams whose most recent multiyear Academic Progress Rates (APR) are among the top 10 percent nationally in their respective sport. Individually, 11 Jackrabbit women’s basketball players were honored on the all-Summit League Academic Team. To be honored on the Academic All-Summit League Team, student-athletes must have a 3.0 or better grade-point average in the semester of their championship event and must use a year of eligibility. Overall, Jackrabbit student-athletes combined to rank second in The Summit League with 152 honorees on Academic All-Summit League teams. Oakland led the way with 154 selections. In addition, eight SDSU women’s basketball players were honored on the Commissioner’s List of Academic Excellence by The Summit League, with six earning additional record as Summit League Distinguished Scholars. The Jackrabbits’ eight Commissioner’s List honorees represented 100 percent of eligible student-athletes qualifying for the award, earning SDSU a Summit League Team Academic Achievement Award. A total of 71 percent of Jackrabbit list-eligible student-athletes qualified for the Commissioner’s List of Academic Excellence. In order for a student-athlete to be selected to the Commissioner’s List of Academic Excellence, he or she must carry at least a 3.0 cumulative grade-point average, achieve sophomore academic standing at the institution, have used a year of eligibility and be on the squad list in the sport in which he or she is nominated. Transfers, graduate students and junior college graduates must have completed one academic year at the nominating institution. True freshmen, redshirt freshmen and first-year transfers are not eligible for the award.

ACADEMIC ALL-AMERICA South Dakota State University guard Ashley Eide was named to the Capital One Academic All-America Second Team in February 2012. A sophomore guard from Sioux Falls, Eide earned a spot on the squad with a perfect 4.0 grade-point average while majoring in health, physical education and recreation. A total of 15 players were honored on the University Division first, second and third teams. Eide is the sixth Jackrabbit women's basketball player to receive Academic All-America recognition during the program's history, joining: Tara Tessier (first team, 1988); Laurie (Bruns) Kruse (second team, 1991); Jodi Bergemann (third team, 1994); Megan Vogel (second team, 2007), and Jennifer Warkenthien (second team, 2009). Eide earned a spot on the national ballot by repeating on the Academic All-District Team. Her selection to that honor squad marked the sixth straight season the Jackrabbits had a player named to the Academic AllDistrict team, joining Megan Vogel (2007), Courtney Grimsrud (2008), Jennifer Warkenthien (2009), Ashlea Muckenhirn (2009) and Ketty Cornemann (2010). Vogel and Warkenthien were first-team selections who were later honored as Academic All-Americans. Selections to the Capital One (formerly ESPN) Academic All-District VII Team are based on votes by members of the College Sports Information Directors of America from South Dakota, North Dakota, Iowa, Nebraska, Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, Wyoming and Montana. Studentathletes must be at least a sophomore in athletic standing, maintain a minimum grade-point average of 3.3 and be a starter or key reserve to be nominated.

LUBBOCK, Texas — Talk about an auspicious debut. South Dakota State tied an NCAA Tournament record with 16 threepointers, matching its own school record in the process, as the Jackrabbits rolled in their inaugural Division I tournament game with a 90-55 victory over Texas Christian on March 22, 2009. The Jackrabbits, who tied a school record for wins in a season, upped their record to 32-2, while TCU ended its season at 20-11. SDSU used the three-ball early and often, racing out to a 28-4 lead in the first nine and a half minutes behind seven three-pointers. Redshirt freshman Jill Young came off the bench to drain her first four three-point attempts of the night. The Jackrabbits continued to shred TCU’s 1-3-1 defense, racking up 11 three-pointers in the first half en route to a 52-22 halftime advantage. While SDSU was shooting the lights out at United Spirit Arena, TCU was firing blanks. The Horned Frogs opened the first half 1-of-15 from the field and the second half with a 1-of-14 stretch. The second-half drought allowed the Jackrabbits to open the final frame with a 15-1 run as they built their largest lead of the night — 44 points — at 67-23 on a Kristin Rotert three-point play. Rotert and Young shared game-high honors with 17 points. Young canned five three-pointers, while Rotert nailed four from long distance. Jennifer Warkenthien posted her 13th double-double of the season with 15 points and 10 rebounds. Maria Boever added 13 points and seven boards. Stacie Oistad was the fifth player in double figures for SDSU with 10 points. The Jackrabbits were efficient offensively, finishing the game 34-of-63 overall from the field, 54 percent, including 16-of-31 from three-point range. SDSU recorded assists on 28 of its 34 baskets and committed only 10 turnovers. Seven different Jackrabbits hit at least one three-pointer. TCU, meanwhile, ended the night 20-of-63 from the field, 31.7 percent, and 3-for-16 on three-point attempts. The Horned Frogs also converted 12-of-17 attempts at the free throw line, 70.6 percent. The Horned Frogs’ leading scorer, Helena Sverrisdottir, was held scoreless in the first half, but led TCU with 12 points and eight rebounds. Emily Carter tallied 11 points and TK LaFleur contributed 10 points.

LUBBOCK, Texas — Kelli Griffin banked in a runner from the right side of the lane with .5 seconds remaining, lifting fifth-ranked and secondseeded Baylor (Texas) to a 60-58 win over 15th-ranked South Dakota State in the NCAA Tournament Second Round on March 24, 2009. The Jackrabbits ended their season with a 32-3 record, matching the best mark in school history. Baylor upped its record to 29-5. SDSU led for nearly the entire game, jumping out to a 15-2 lead in the opening seven minutes. The Jackrabbits opened the game 6-of-9 from the field, while Baylor opened the game 0-for-10. Baylor pulled to within four, 22-18, with 7:53 remaining on a Griffin three-pointer, but the Jackrabbits reeled off the next six points to build the lead back to 10. However, the Lady Bears closed the first half on a 10-1 run to make the score 29-28 heading into halftime. The Lady Bears stayed in the game by getting to the foul line, scoring their first six points of the game and 14 of their first-half points at the charity stripe. Baylor took its first lead of the night, 55-53 with 2:57 to play, on a three-pointer by Jessica Morrow, but SDSU came back 23 seconds later to tie the game on a Stacie Oistad layup. Trailing 58-56 with 21 seconds remaining, the Jackrabbits tied the game for the fifth time with 7.6 seconds remaining as Jill Young scored on a layup after a backcut pass from Warkenthien. After a timeout, Griffin drove the length of the floor for the winning basket. Griffin ended the night with a game-high 21 points on 7-for-14 shooting from the field. Melissa Jones added 12 points and a team-high seven rebounds off the bench for Baylor, which held a 30-29 advantage on the boards. Warkenthien led the Jackrabbits with her 14th double-double of the season, scoring 18 points and grabbing 10 rebounds in her final collegiate game. The Jackrabbits ended the night 20-of-46 from the field, 43.5 percent, but were only 3-of-15 from three-point range. At the line, the Jackrabbits made 15-of-20 attempts, 75 percent. Baylor finished the game 20-of-49 from the floor, 40.8 percent, including 3-of-11 from behind the arc. The Bears put together one of their best efforts at the free throw line this season with a 17-of-19 showing, 89.5 percent.

NORMAN, Okla. — The South Dakota State University women’s basketball team’s season ended March 21 with a hard-fought 68-57 defeat at the hands of third-seeded Oklahoma in the first round of the NCAA Tournament on March 21, 2010. The Jackrabbits, who were making their second consecutive NCAA appearance, finished the season with a 22-11 overall record. Oklahoma improved to 24-10 en route to an eventual berth in the Final Four. As they did throughout the month of March, the Jackrabbits found success from behind the arc early, connecting on three of their first four three-point attempts. Back-to-back three-pointers by Maria Boever gave SDSU an 8-4 lead and the Jackrabbits regained an 11-10 lead at the 16:16 mark on a triple by Macie Michelson. The lead was shortlived, however, as Oklahoma went on a 14-2 run over the next five and a half minutes. The Sooners, who shot 53 percent from the field in the first half, eventually built a 15-point lead before taking a 13-point advantage, 44-31, into halftime. In the second half, the Jackrabbits employed a 2-3 zone that allowed them to chip away at the deficit. SDSU trimmed the margin to single digits at the 9:52 mark of the second half on a three-pointer by Jennie Sunnarborg. The two squads traded baskets until Leah Dietel hit a free-throw line jumper with 3:52 remaining to pull the Jackrabbits within seven at 62-55. However, the Jackrabbits would score only one basket the rest of the way. SDSU ended the night 21-of-57 from the field, 36.8 percent. The Jackrabbits fared better from three-point range, going 8-for-18, 44.4 percent, while also finishing 7-of-8 at the free throw line. Rotert led the Jackrabbits with 13 points, while Boever closed out her standout career with 12 points and a team-high nine rebounds. The Sooners placed four players in double figures, led by Nyeshia Stevenson with 17 points. Abi Olajuwon tallied 15, with point guard Danielle Robinson contributing 13 points, eight assists, six rebounds and four steals. Amanda Thompson rounded out the double-figure scorers with a double-double performance of 11 points and 15 rebounds. Overall, OU held a 36-35 edge on the boards and a 42-20 advantage on points in the paint. The Sooners ended the game 27-of-61 from the floor, 44.3 percent, including 4-of-16 from three-point range. At the line, OU converted 10-of-11 attempts, 90.9 percent.

CINCINNATI, Ohio — Fifth-ranked Xavier’s frontcourt tandem of Ta’Shia Phillips and Amber Harris combined for 43 points and 27 rebounds to lead the Musketeers to a 72-56 victory over South Dakota State in the opening round of the NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament on March 20, 2011, at the Cintas Center. Xavier, seeded second in the Spokane Region, improved to 29-2 overall. The Jackrabbits, making their third consecutive tournament appearance, ended their season with a 19-14 overall record. Xavier led nearly the entire way, although SDSU hung tough with the much-taller Musketeers throughout the opening half. A three-pointer by Jill Young gave the Jackrabbits their only lead of the game, 6-5, three and a half minutes into the game. Phillips, a 6-foot-6 center, scored the first eight points and Harris scored the final four points of a 12-0 Xavier run. SDSU came back with an 8-0 run of their own to pull to within 17-14 on a deep three-pointer by Young. SDSU trimmed the margin to one, 22-21, on a basket by Ashley Eide with 8 minutes and 34 seconds remaining in the half. A late 7-0 spurt by Xavier gave the Musketeers a 39-30 lead at the break. Tyesha Moss scored the first five points of the second half as Xavier took a double-digit lead for the first time, and added a three-pointer from the left wing to push the Musketeer advantage to 20 points, 57-37 with 13:01 to play in the game. SDSU could get no closer than the final margin of 16 points the rest of the way. Phillips posted game-highs of 27 points and 15 rebounds, while Harris added 16 points and 12 boards for the Musketeers, who held a 4526 advantage on the boards, including a 16-4 edge on the offensive end. XU made 25-of-59 attempts, 42.4 percent, including 3-of-12 from behind the arc. Moss scored 13 points, with Special Jennings adding 10. One positive for the Jackrabbits was the production they received from their bench. SDSU reserves outscored their counterparts, 22-3, led by a team-high 10 points from Eide. Young scored nine points on 3-of-7 shooting from three-point range. As a team, the Jackrabbits finished the game 18-of-51 from the field, 35.3 percent, including 5-of-18 from three-point range. At the line, SDSU converted 15-of-18 attempts, 83.3 percent.

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Courtney Moses drained an NCAA Tournament record nine three-pointers en route to a game-high 29 points, leading 12th-ranked Purdue to a 83-68 victory over South Dakota State in the opening round of postseason play. The fourth-seeded Boilermakers improved to 25-8 overall. SDSU, which was making its fourth consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance, ended its season 24-9 overall. Purdue led wire to wire, putting together a 12-4 run in the opening five minutes to build a 16-7 lead after the first of Moses' three-pointers. The Boilermakers extended their lead to 12 points at 23-11 on the third-pointer of the game by Moses at the 13:09 mark. The Jackrabbits cut the margin to five points, 25-20, two minutes later after a pair of three-pointers by reserve wing Rachel Walters and a triple by Jennie Sunnarborg. Purdue led 38-33 at the half. SDSU trimmed the deficit to two points, 38-36, on a traditional threepoint play by Sunnarborg 38 seconds into the second half. However, Purdue countered with a 14-4 run over the next three minutes. The Jackrabbits got back to within eight at 62-54 on a pair of Leah Dietel free throws with 8:55 remaining, but Purdue slammed the door shut with a decisive 13-3 run that included another Moses three-pointer and a three-point play by Brittany Rayburn, who tallied 12 points in the game. K.K. Houser also scored a dozen for Purdue, adding six assists and five steals.
