I’m Ronald Recap and here’s my report from the sporting events that happened said night. My report is quicker, faster and easier than your sex life, so enjoy. A new way to read about games. You already watched the games but you just need a minute report to remind you why your team won or lost. Hopefully, it’s not the latter because it won’t be as quick and easy to read.
Summit League Men’s Basketball
#2 South Dakota 87 vs. #1 South Dakota State 97
Top quote: David Jenkins Jr. on if he ever played in an environment like the Denny Sanford Premier Center was like last night, “Nah, not nessecarily, my high school games used to be pretty packed but not like this.”
Teammate Mike Daum bursts out laughing and says, “What!?” … “My high school was packed too then.”
Jenkins responds, “No it wasn’t, not in Kimball, not in Kimball.”
Daum goes, “We had lots of cows at the game.”
Turning point: South Dakota had the 18-17 lead with 11:11 left in the first half. SDSU superstar Mike Daum a.k.a Drizzy Daum was on the bench with foul trouble but then the Jackrabbits rattled off eight straight points to take a 25-18 and that’s when the push started.
Stat of the game: This was tough. It was very impressive that SDSU shot 47.7 percent and 50 percent in the first half but the stat of the game was both teams went a combined 41 of 48 from the free throw line. Now that’s a stat of the game you will not forget.
Sad stat of the game: It easily had to be Matt Mooney’s shooting percentage. I get the kid is good but when he takes 26 shots and only scores 30 points it takes his team outta the game. Now some of those shots were in the hoop and rattled out and also he had to take a lot more contested shots down the stretch because of the deficit his team was in.
Next up: SDSU will head to the NCAA Tournament as probably a 13 seed as USD will make the NIT and will win a game or two.

11,114 would be, like, what, the 10th biggest city in South Dakota?
