BROOKINGS, S.D. (GoJacks.com) — All 12 Jackrabbits who played got into the scoring column as South Dakota State (4-1) defeated Presentation (5-6), 99-62, Thursday night in Frost Arena.

Matt Mims earned his nine points on a 3-for-4 shooting performance from deep while Scheierman added nine points and seven rebounds to his six-assist night. Jaylon Gentry scored his first points as a Jackrabbit on a step-back jumper that eventually found its target after a friendly roll.
In total, eight Jackrabbits connected on a three-pointer as part of 51.4% shooting performance from beyond the arc.
Presentation shot 42% from the floor in the loss and was led in scoring by Ian Kelly and Denzel McDuffey who each finished with 11 points.
