Jackrabbit men roll past Western Illinois

BROOKINGS, S.D. (GoJacks.com) — South Dakota State men’s basketball rolled past Western Illinois Saturday, 91-56, as all five starters scored in double figures at the 2020 Lamb Bonanza inside Frost Arena.

Douglas Wilson led the attack with 19 points, shooting 9-of-13 from the field. Alex Arians tallied his first double-double of the season with 12 points and 11 assists.

David Wingett finished with a career-high 15 points, thanks in part to a fast start that saw the Winnebago, Nebraska guard tally 10 points through the opening seven and a half minutes of action.

Matt Dentlinger dished out a team-leading four assists alongside 14 points, while Noah Freidel added with 10 points, four rebounds and two assists.

SDSU (11-7, 2-1 Summit League) broke 90 and shot better than 55 percent for the second-straight game, while tallying 10-plus 3-pointers for the fourth consecutive contest.

South Dakota State heads for Denver, Colorado next Wednesday to face the Denver Pioneers. Tip is set for 8 p.m. CST / 7 p.m. MST from Magness Arena.
