Men’s winning streak snapped at NDSU

FARGO, N.D. (GoJacks.com) — South Dakota State saw its eight-game winning streak come to an end Thursday at North Dakota State, falling 71-69 in overtime.

The Jackrabbits end their regular season at 22-9 overall and 13-3 in Summit League play, and will await tournament seeding through the weekend.

Noah Freidel poured in 23 for the Jackrabbits, adding a team-high eight rebounds over 39 minutes.

Matt Dentlinger added 20 points with a 10-of-14 effort from the field, while Brandon Key finished just shy of double figures at nine points.

Baylor Scheierman dished five assists to go with seven boards, while Dentlinger was third on the team with six rebounds.

Though South Dakota State has secured at least a share of its third-consecutive Summit League regular season title, the Jackrabbits will need to wait to learn their final seeding for next month’s league championship. The Jacks have locked up a top-two seed and will play a Saturday, March 7 quarterfinal game at either 6 or 8 p.m. Check GoJacks.com on Saturday, Feb. 29 for final seeding information.
