    SD Mines Men's Basketball: Miners Tame Southeastern Oklahoma State

    RAPID CITY, S.D. --- The South Dakota School of Mines men’s basketball team picked up its first win of the season Wednesday night during the US Bank Thanksgiving Classic Basketball Tournament at the King Center in Rapid City, S.D., as the Hardrockers dispatched the Southeastern Oklahoma State Savage Storm, 86-75.

    It was a very high tempo game and the Hardrockers came out with a lot of drive and intensity. The home team posted its highest point production of the season. The Storm also showed a lot of determination, but the Hardrockers were able to distance themselves in the second half which proved to be the difference in the game.

    After trailing early in the contest, SD Mines caught and overtook the Storm and held a two-point advantage at the half, 38-36. The second half saw the ‘Rockers outscore the visitors, 48-39. Free throws also played a role Wednesday. The ‘Rockers shot 80 percent from the charity stripe converting 16-20 while Southeastern Oklahoma hit 10-17 for 59 percent.

    For the game, SD Mines shot 47 percent from the field connecting on 33-70 attempts while the Storm made good on 31-61 from the field for 51 percent.

    Individually for the Hardrockers, freshman Brian Orr had a breakout game, leading his team with 19 points, including four three-pointers. Fellow freshman Jaisean Jackson also had a stellar outing with 18 points, two assists and a steal. Sophomore Konor Kulas also had a big night, recording another double-double with 17 points and 16 rebounds to go along with his three assists, one block and three steals.

    The much needed win gives SD Mines a 1-5 record on the season and will next see action on Friday against Chadron State on the second day of the US Bank Thanksgiving Classic. The SD Mines men play at 7 p.m.
