For South Dakota State University women’s basketball coach Aaron Johnston, the pieces are in place for the Jackrabbits to make another run at a Summit League championship and berth in the NCAA Tournament. It may just come down to finding the right combination. “I would say one of the strengths of the team is balance,” Johnston said. “There is very little difference between and top returning players and our new players. It will be our job as coaches to develop go-to players to help us finish games.” The Jackrabbits are coming off a 2010-11 season in which they made their third consecutive appearance in the NCAA Tournament, finishing an up-and-down campaign with a 19-14 overall record. In Summit League play, SDSU used a strong second half to tie for third place in the league standings with a 12-6 mark before winning the league tournament title in Sioux Falls for the third time in as many years of postseason eligibility. Leading the Jackrabbits into the 2011-12 season are seniors Jennie Sunnarborg and Jill Young. Sunnarborg is a preseason first-team allSummit League pick after earning secondteam honors last season. A versatile forward, the Osseo, Minn., product is the team’s top returning scorer, after averaging 13.0 points per game. She also averaged 4.3 rebounds per contest and led the squad with 43 blocked shots. A guard, Young has been an honorable mention all-Summit League selection each of the past two years after earning Sixth Woman of the Year recognition her freshman season. Last season, she posted career-best averages of 10.4 points and 4.0 rebounds per game, while shooting 41.4 percent from three-point range and 83.8 percent at the free throw line. Both seniors are on pace to attain the 1,000-point milestone this season. Young

enters the campaign with 953 career points, while Sunnarborg has tallied 758 over her first three seasons. With 222 career threepointers, Young should shatter the Jackrabbit all-time mark of 250 currently held by Brenda Davis (2001-04) and Kristin Rotert (2008-11). Four juniors, all of whom have played complementary roles their first two seasons, complete the list of upperclassmen. In the post, the Jackrabbits regain the services of Leah Dietel and Katie Lingle. Dietel has missed parts of her first two seasons with nagging injuries, but has proven to be one of the team’s top rebounders when healthy. In 22 games last season, including 11 starts, Dietel averaged 3.6 points and 4.1 rebounds per game. Lingle was a pleasant surprise last season for the Jackrabbits as she moved into the starting lineup near the end of the calendar year and provided a presence both offensively and defensively in the paint. The Pierre native displayed double-double ability while earning all-tournament honors at the Summit League Championships. For the season, Lingle put together averages of 6.4 points and 4.8 rebounds, while shooting 50.7 percent from the field. Fellow Pierre native Steph Paluch was part of a rotation at guard, compiling averages of 3.3 points and 1.3 assists per game. Rounding out the junior class is wing Ashley Eide. A Sioux Falls native, Eide began the season in the starting lineup but proved to be a valuable reserve by averaging 5.0 points and 2.8 rebounds per game. She was the team’s leading scorer with 10 points in last season’s NCAA Tournament game against Xavier (Ohio). “They all have the ability to step up and play key roles,” Johnston said. “Our group of juniors is very tough-minded, very competitive and has a strong desire to win.”

2011-12 PREVIEW Three sophomores who played key roles last season also will be in contention for expanded roles in the Jackrabbit rotation this season. At guard, Tara Heiser is expected to battle for the starting point guard position after a strong run in postseason play. The Watertown native averaged 2.8 points and 1.3 assists in limited action last year. Also returning from the sophomore class are wing Megan Waytashek and forward Hannah Strop. Waytashek was making a bid for cracking the starting lineup on a regular basis before suffering a knee injury in early January. Once again healthy, Waytashek will look to improve on her averages of 4.3 points and 2.6 rebounds from last season. Strop has the ability to play with her back to the basket, as well as step out behind the three-point arc. She played in 32 of the team’s 33 games, contributing 3.2 points and 2.5 boards per contest. Johnston also expects members of the freshman class to make an impact this season. Forwards Mariah Clarin and Megan Stuart are expected to provide explosiveness and versatility, while wing Rachel Walters has the ability to stretch defenses with her shooting from the perimeter. Filling out the freshman class and roster is Gabby Boever, who sat out the entire 2010-11 season while recovering from an injury she

suffered during her senior season of high school. “All three true freshmen seem very capable of helping us right away and Gabby, as a redshirt freshman, gives us a true point guard,” Johnston said. “We feel very comfortable with whoever is at point guard; they all bring something different to the position.” Not only will the Jackrabbits be deep and versatile, they will also be physically imposing. “This is the biggest and strongest team we’ve had,” Johnston said, noting that the roster features eight players 6-foot or taller. As has been the case throughout its Division I pursuits, SDSU will again play a challenging schedule. Five Jackrabbit opponents played in the NCAA Tournament last season, and SDSU will play four consecutive games against NCAA qualifiers in December, including a home-and-home series against Arkansas-Little Rock. “It’s the right balance for where we want to be as a program and with the team we expect to have,” Johnston said. Included in the non-conference schedule is the program’s second trip in four years to Cancun, Mexico. SDSU is scheduled to face Cincinnati (Ohio) and Marist (N.Y.) over the Thanksgiving holiday. The Jacks will return stateside to open Summit League play Nov. 30 at Western Illinois, followed by a Dec. 2 matchup at IUPUI.

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.

2011-12 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 6,500 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 in the summer of 2004, 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 and 2009 and 2011. In addition, Frost Arena is the site of SDSU 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.

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. 2011-12 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 seven Division I teams to be recognized in the WBCA Academic Top 25 Team Honor Roll and to make an appearance in the 2011 NCAA Tournament. In addition, 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.

COMMUNITY-MINDED

Throughout the school year, the Jackrabbit women’s basketball team takes an active role in Brookings and surrounding area communities. In recent years, a commitment to community service has been integrated into the fabric of the entire Jackrabbit athletic program. Over the past few years, SDSU women’s basketball players have participated in the following community service projects and activities: • Serving as instructors for the annual Fast Break Basketball Clinic • Visiting hospitals, nursing homes and Children’s Home Society care facilities in Sioux Falls as part of the annual Paint the Falls Blue event • Assisting with the grand opening of the South Dakota Children’s Museum • Reading at elementary schools in Brookings, along with other school visits to promote exercise and healthy habits • Serving as student-athlete ambassadors for the Jackrabbit Scholarship Auction and other Athletic Department events • Taking part in a campus cleanup effort • Raking leaves for elderly residents and others in need of assistance • Collecting food for the Brookings Food Pantry • Working with state and local Special Olympics organizations • Inviting youth to participate in basketball skills contests as part of the “Jacks in the Backyard” event during football tailgating • Assisting in sandbagging efforts in the Pierre-Fort Pierre area during recent flooding

Jackrabbit players hosted a basketball skills competition during a recent “Jacks in the Backyard” event during football tailgating and also spent some fall afternoons raking leaves for local residents in need of assistance. 16

2011-12 JACKRABBIT BASKETBALL

Many community service activities are organized through the SDSU Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC), whose mission is to enhance the total student-athlete experience by promoting opportunity for all studentathletes, protecting student-athlete welfare and fostering a positive studentathlete image.

COMMUNITY-MINDED

People associated with Jackrabbit Athletics understand the important role South Dakota State University plays in the city of Brookings, as well as in the state of South Dakota. Because the athletics program and its studentathletes derive so much support — both financial and emotional — from the residents of the city, state, and region, importance is placed on giving back to the community through service projects, volunteering, and fund-raising for charitable organizations. Women’s basketball team members have participated in a number of community service events throughout the past year, including helping with the Special Olympics state games and sandbagging at areas of the state affected by flooding.

The Summit League Coach of the Year in each of the Jackrabbits’ first two seasons in the 10-team league, 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. 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 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.

COACH JOHNSTON However, SDSU's home-court advantage was not enough as the Jackrabbits fell to a hotshooting 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 six 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.

The Bobcats finished fifth in Division I for team grade-point average during the 2005-06, fourth in 2006-07 and 11th during the 2007-08 campaign. SDSU led all divisions of women’s college basketball in team GPA each of those seasons. A native of Solon, Iowa, Falco was a standout player at Northern Iowa, ending her career fifth on the career scoring charts with 1,343 points.

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.

SUMMIT LEAGUE PREVIEW After claiming the last two regular season women’s basketball titles, Oral Roberts has once again been tabbed as The Summit League team to beat during the 2011-12 campaign. Oral Roberts’ Kevi Luper was named the preseason Player of the Year for the second straight season. The Golden Eagles landed 24 first-place votes and 411 points in voting conducted by the league's head coaches, sports information directors and media. ORU was followed by Oakland with two first-place votes and 356 points and threetime defending tournament champion South Dakota State with 328 points and the final first-place vote. IPFW edged out North Dakota State for fourth place. UMKC placed sixth, ahead of league newcomer South Dakota and Southern Utah. IUPUI and Western Illinois rounded out the poll. Luper leads the preseason first team allleague list after becoming the first player in NCAA history to lead the nation in both points per game (23.7) and steals per game (3.7). Luper has won The Summit League Player and Defensive Player of the Year awards the last two seasons and is joined by teammate Jaci Bigham, who led the league in assists (5.2 apg) on the first team. North Dakota State’s Abby Plucker, last season’s league rebounding leader (10.1 rpg) and South Dakota State’s Jennie Sunnarborg were also named to the preseason first team. IPFW’s Stephanie Rosado and Oakland’s Bethany Watterworth, both First Team AllSummit selections last season, completed the team. Named to the preseason second team were NDSU's Katie Birkel, who led the Bison with 3.4 assists per game, Oakland’s Sharise Calhoun, an honorable mention all-league selection a year ago, and Amber Hegge of South Dakota. IUPUI’s Kerah Nelson and Oral Roberts’ Jordan Pyle rounded out the second team. The Golden Eagles return all five starters from last season and are seeking their thirdstraight regular season title and first tournament title since 2007-08. Coach of the Year Jerry Finkbeiner welcomes back three preseason all-league selections (Bigham, Luper, Pyle) along with reigning Sixth Woman of the Year Savanna Buck.

Oakland welcomes back three players that received all-league honors a year ago from a squad that finished as runner-up at the league tournament. In addition to Watterworth and Calhoun, the Golden Grizzlies also return allnewcomer selection Zakiya Minifee. The Jackrabbits are looking for their fourth consecutive Summit League Tournament title and will count on Sunnarborg and Jill Young, an honorable mention selection last season, to extend the record-setting feat. After finishing last season with its best Summit League record (13-5), IPFW will be led by Rosado and honorable mention selection Anne Boese. North Dakota State and UMKC both finished with 9-9 league records a year ago. The Bison will look to Birkel and Plucker to lead

them, while the Kangaroos return all five starters. Newcomer South Dakota was selected seventh after finishing with a 20-12 overall record last season. Southern Utah looks to replace all-league honoree Challis Pascucci in its final year in the league. IUPUI is led by Nelson, while Western Illinois’ new head coach J.D. Gravina looks to reigning Newcomer of the Year Sadie Webb to lead the Fighting Leathernecks. The regular season begins Nov. 11, with the 18-game, double round-robin league schedule starting Nov. 30. The 2012 Summit League Women's Basketball Championship returns to the Sioux Falls Arena in Sioux Falls, S.D., for the fourth consecutive year March 3-6.

2010-11 REVIEW


2010-11 SEASON RECAP The third time remained the charm for the South Dakota State University women’s basketball team during the 2010-11 season. After an up-and-down first three months of the campaign, the Jackrabbits peaked during the second half of the Summit League season and carried the momentum through the postseason tournament to earn their third consecutive trip to the NCAA Tournament. “I thought we played great basketball in the last month and a half of the season,” head coach Aaron Johnston said. “We played at a very high level both at home and on the road. The team really came together.” The Jackrabbits opened the season by competing in the 16-team Preseason WNIT. SDSU hosted games in the first two rounds, handily defeating Utah Valley, 87-32, before scoring a hard-fought 76-64 victory over Hampton (Va.). The win over Utah Valley, in which seven players scored in double figures, marked SDSU’s 18th consecutive win in a season opener. SDSU traveled to Purdue (Ind.) for WNIT semifinal action, falling 73-40 in the Jackrabbits’ lowest-scoring game in the Division I era. A Jackrabbit victory against Illinois State the night before Thanksgiving gave Johnston his 250th career victory. From there, injuries and inconsistent play hampered the team for the remainder of November and throughout December. The Jackrabbits opened Summit League play 0-2 for the first time with a home loss to North Dakota State on Dec. 4 and a last-second, 73-72 loss at Southern Utah on Dec. 29, which set the SDSU record at 4-9 and put the Jackrabbits in danger of their first losing season since the 1985-86 campaign. “Despite a lot of adversity with injuries throughout the year, I thought our team hung together very well,” Johnston said. “We did not have a single workout last year where we had everybody healthy and able to practice.” There were other narrow home losses in which the Jackrabbits faltered down the stretch, including back-to-back games in December to Arizona State and Iowa in which SDSU was within a basket heading into the final five minutes. SDSU’s home-court advantage was further shaken with back-to-back overtime losses at Frost Arena to IPFW and Oakland in January. The team’s fortunes began to change the final weekend in January as the Jackrabbits recorded victories over UMKC and Southern Utah to open the second half of the league slate and climb back over the .500 mark in Summit contests. The Jackrabbit winning streak reached three with a win in their final appearance at Centenary (La.), before falling 85-78 in a tightly contested

JACKRABBIT PLAYERS Kristin Rotert, left, and Jill Young ended the 2010-11 season among the top three for career three-pointers at SDSU. game at regular season champion Oral Roberts. SDSU began to reassert itself on its home floor, sweeping a weekend series from Western Illinois and IUPUI. The following weekend, the Jackrabbits took another important step in securing an upperdivision finish by sweeping a series at Oakland and IPFW. SDSU scored 21 consecutive points to win at Oakland for the first time since the 2007-08 season, and converted down the stretch for a 50-47 victory two days later in Fort Wayne, Ind. The winning streak reached five with another complete effort on the road as SDSU notched a 64-51 in the regular season finale at North Dakota State. SDSU and the Bison met in a rematch eight days later to open the Summit League Basketball Championship in Sioux Falls. The Jackrabbits trailed by seven points in the opening minutes before clicking on all cylinders to the tune of a 30-7 run to close the first half. The Jackrabbits pushed the margin to 24 points in the second half before notching a 62-51 victory. In semifinal action, the Jackrabbits squared off against an IPFW squad, with whom they also split the regular season series. SDSU again used the home-state advantage to the fullest, surviving a late charge from the Mastodons for a 70-67 victory and a third consecutive berth in the Summit League championship game in as many seasons of eligibility. The championship turned out to be a rematch from the 2009 season as the Jackrabbits faced an upstart Oakland team that convincingly knocked off top-seeded Oral Roberts in the other semifinal.The Golden Grizzlies took an early lead before the momentum swung in SDSU’s favor. The Jackrabbits took the lead for good at 19-17 midway through the first half on a basket by

tournament most valuable player Kristin Rotert and answered every Oakland run the rest of the way. In recording the 61-54 victory, the Jackrabbits became the first team in league history to win three consecutive league tournament titles. Twelve days later, the scene shifted to Cincinnati, Ohio, for the NCAA Tournament. The 15th-seeded Jackrabbits met second-seeded and host Xavier in the opening round, falling 72-56 to a much-taller Musketeer squad. Sophomore Ashley Eide came off the bench to lead SDSU in scoring. Overall, the Jackrabbits finished with a 19-14 record, including a 12-6 mark in The Summit League. SDSU was well-represented in postseason honors. Rotert and Sunnarborg were each second-team all-Summit League honorees, while Jill Young received honorable mention recognition. Rotert finished as the team’s leading scorer with an average of 13.1 points per game, with Sunnarborg right behind at 13.0 points per contest. Young contributed 10.4 points per game. Rotert finished her career tied for the all-time Jackrabbit lead in three-pointers with 250 and finished eighth in career scoring with 1,484 points.Young moved into third place on the career three-point charts with 222 while shooting 41.5 percent from behind the arc. In the classroom, the Jackrabbits regained the top spot for Division I team grade-point average in the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association Top 25 Honor Roll. SDSU led the field with a 3.666 team GPA as 11 squad members were honored on the Academic All-Summit League Team, including nine who were recognized as Summit League Distinguished Scholars for compiling a GPA of 3.6 or higher.

March 8, 2011 • Summit League Championship

SIOUX FALLS — South Dakota State became the first women’s basketball team to win three consecutive Summit League tournament championships, claiming a 61-54 victory over Oakland at the Sioux Falls Arena on March 8. The Jackrabbits earned the league's automatic bid to the NCAA Division I Tournament as they won for the eighth straight game and 11th time in 12 games, and will take a 19-13 record into the tourney after starting the season 4-9. Senior Kristin Rotert, named the tourney MVP, led the Jacks with 17 points while Jennie Sunnarborg just missed a double-double with 13 points and a career-high nine assists. SDSU's ball movement led to 20 assists on 24 field goals. Sophomore Katie Lingle, who joined the starting lineup in mid-season, added 13 points, six rebounds, two blocked shots and a pair of assists, and was also named to the all-tournament team. Junior Jill Young, averaging 10 points per game, had just one free throw, but finished with a team high nine rebounds. Oakland, which finished 20-12, led early in the game, never by more than four, before SDSU tied the game at 15 on a three-pointer by Rotert. After Sunnarborg scored for SDSU, Malika Glover tied the game at 17 before the Jacks took the lead for good on a layup by Rotert. SDSU led 33-29 at the half and built its biggest lead at 53-43 on a threepointer by Jennifer Schuttloffel with 6:33 to play. Oakland closed within three, 57-54, after a trio of three-pointers — two by Anna Patritto and one by Bethany Watterworth — but single free throws by Sunnarborg and Young, and finally two by Rotert with 14 seconds left, provided the final margin. Oakland, which advanced to the title game by knocking off top seed Oral Roberts in the semifinals, had three players in double figures: Watterworth with 17, Sharise Calhoun with 12 and Zakiya Minifee with 10 points and 10 rebounds. Calhoun and Watterworth were each named to the all-tournament team. SDSU shot 45 percent, 24-of-53, from the field, while OU came in at 40 percent, 21-of-52. OU had a 34-31 rebounding advantage, but the Jacks were plus-five in turnovers after committing a season-low 10 miscues.

KATIE LINGLE earned all-tournament recognition after averaging 10.7 points per game. Lingle scored 13 in the championship game.

SOUTH DAKOTA STATE XAVIER (Ohio)

March 20, 2011 • NCAA Tournament First Round

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 Sunday afternoon at the Cintas Center. Xavier, 29-2 overall and seeded second in the Spokane Region, will face Louisville (Ky.) in second-round action Tuesday night. The Jackrabbits, making their third consecutive tournament appearance, end 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 at 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. The two teams continued to counter each other until Xavier closed the opening half with a 7-0 spurt to lead 39-30 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. Xavier made 25-of-59 attempts, 42.4 percent, including 3-of-12 from behind the arc. Moss finished with 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. Senior Kristin Rotert added a three-pointer en route to seven points as she tied the SDSU career three-point record of 250 previously set by Brenda Davis from 2001-04. 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.

ACADEMIC AWARDS The South Dakota State women’s basketball team continued to make the grade during the 2010-11 season. For the fourth time in its six-year history at the Division I level, the Jackrabbits posted the highest grade-point average in the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association’s Academic Top 25 Honor Roll, topping the chart with a 3.666 team GPA. Overall, SDSU ranked second across all divisions of women’s college basketball. “This is a really exciting accomplishment for the team,” Jackrabbit head coach Aaron Johnston said. “This group has talked about getting back to that top spot over the past couple years and it is good to see this group of new players help us reach that goal. I’m proud of all the sacrifice and effort the players have put forward to accomplish this goal.” 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. Student-athletes are recognized as a Distinguished Scholar by compiling a 3.6 GPA or higher, with nine Jackrabbit players earning that distinction. Overall, Jackrabbit student-athletes garnered a conference-best 148 Academic All-Summit League awards during the spring semester. In addition, eight SDSU women’s basketball players were honored on the Commissioner’s List of Academic Excellence by The Summit League. With the eight selections — 64 percent of the squad — the Jackrabbits were honored with a Team Academic Achievement Award from the league. 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-DISTRICT South Dakota State University guard Ashley Eide was named to the Capital One Academic All-District VII Second Team in February 2011. 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 17 players were honored on the University Division first, second and third teams. On the court, Eide has played in 20 games with nine starts, and is averaging 6.3 points and 3.4 rebounds per game. She has missed the last two games due to injury. Eide’s selection marks the fifth straight season the Jackrabbits have had a player named to the Academic All-District 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.
