WBB: Jacks score 114 in dominant win over Western Illinois


(GoJacks.com) — The Jackrabbit women’s basketball team scored early and often in a 114-50 win over Western Illinois Saturday afternoon at Frost Arena. All five SDSU starters put up double figures in the contest, paced by 19 from Paige Meyer. SDSU moves to 12-8 on the season and 8-1 in the Summit League.

With 114 points and 45 field goals, the Jackrabbits nearly set single-game program records in both categories. The SDSU record for both marks was set against Texas A&M International in 2003, when the Jacks scored 119 points with 47 field goals.

Meyer was joined in double digits by Paiton Burckhard (15), Tylee Irwin (14), Tori Nelson (13) and Myah Selland (12). Kallie Theisen and Haleigh Timmer came off the bench to add nine and six points, respectively. Timmer hit all six free throw attempts, including two from a WIU technical foul early in the game. Addison Hirschman chipped in seven points, all in the fourth quarter.

The Jackrabbits made a two-game road trip up north to take on North Dakota and North Dakota Thursday and Saturday.
