    SPEARFISH, S.D. - The Black Hills State University men's basketball team travels to Northern State on Monday, November 20. The game, scheduled to tipoff at 6 p.m., will be the first road game for the Yellow Jackets this season.

    THE GAME - Northern State

    Northern State is a member of the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference. They were selected to win the league, after finishing 22-8 overall, and 17-5 in conference play last season. The Wolves are currently 3-1 in the 2017-18 season.

    The Yellow Jackets leading returner is Fraser Malcolm, who earned All-RMAC Honorable Mention for his play last season. Malcolm averaged 14.0 points per game and 5.3 rebounds per game. He scored in double figures in 23 of 28 games.

    Jeff Trumbauer enters his fourth season at the helm of the Yellow Jackets. He has a 34-52 record at BHSU.

    Paul Sather is in his eighth year as the head coach of the Wolves. He had a 126-78 record leading into the season.

    Last Time Out
    Black Hills State edged out Johnson & Wales, 71-70, on Saturday evening. After leading by as many as 14 points, the Yellow Jackets allowed the Wildcats back into it. JWU chipped back in the last four minutes, and stayed within three points in the final couple minutes of the game. With the ball and 20 seconds remaning, the Wildcats came down the floor, missed a three-pointer, and grabbed an offensive rebound. However, at the buzzer, Fraser Malcolm blocked the jump shot to seal the win for the Yellow Jackets.

    Malcolm recorded his second double-double of the season, scoring 23 points, and pulling down 11 rebounds. Dez Stoudamire had 15 points, while Antonio Capley had nine boards.

    99 Problems, But a win ain't one
    The Yellow Jackets scored 99 points against Yellowstone Christian (Nov. 11). This was the most points scored by BHSU since they scored 101 in an overtime loss to Colorado Christian in 2013 (Dec. 14).

    Share the rock
    BHSU has begun the season averaging 17.0 assists though two games. The 18 assists against Yellowstone Christian (Nov. 11) are the most in a single game since the Yellow Jackets had 19 in a 84-59 victory over Regis in 2015 (Dec. 12).

    Settling in
    Some of the new players on the Yellow Jackets this season are already making a large impact. Junior transfer Mckaleb McInnis leads the team in scoring, with 16.5 ppg, while junior transfer Dez Stoudamire has earned a starting role on the squad. Freshman Jackson Ehrlin averages 6.5 rebounds per game, which is tied for second on the team.

    Malcolm in the Lead
    Fraser Malcolm returns to the Yellow Jackets for his junior campaign after leading the squad with 14.0 points per game last season. He played 30.5 minutes per game, and earned All-RMAC Honorable Mention following the season.

    Putting Up Numbers
    Returning starters with Malcolm are Zach McLemore and Patrick Mendes. McLemore was second on the squad in scoring, with 11.5 ppg. Mendes averaged 9.5 ppg and 2.7 rpg.

    New Blood
    Despite returning eight players with playing time from last year, there will be a large group of newcomers to the Yellow Jackets. Three transfers will fight for playing time, while two freshman join the squad. Dez Stoudamire, Makaleb McInnis, and Jacob Perkins all come to BHSU from community colleges, while Jackson Ehrlin and Trey Winkler join up after their prep careers.

    BHSU Picked 11th by RMAC Coaches
    Black Hills State was tabbed 11th in the RMAC Coaches' Poll with 59 points. Fort Lewis was voted to finish first, with 183 points, while Colorado Mines (178), and Regis (177), were selected to finish second and third, respectively.
