    SDSU WBB: Jackrabbits Cruise Past Chattanooga

    CHATTANOOGA, Tenn.-The South Dakota State women's basketball team opened Tuesday night's game against Chattanooga with a 10-0 run and cruised to a 71-54 win in nonleague action in front of 1,279 fans in McKenzie Arena.

    Macy Miller, who moved into second in career scoring at SDSU (5-3) on a 3-pointer in the second quarter, led four Jackrabbits in double digits in scoring. The senior tallied 17 points and was a perfect four-for-four from 3-point range. Paiton Burckhard scored 12 points and grabbed a team- and career-best seven rebounds. Madison Guebert and Myah Selland each had 11 points.

    Lakelyn Bouldin led UTC (4-6) with 18 points. Mya Long added 12 points.

    Miller and Guebert each sank 3-pointers and Selland scored four points in the game-opening run. SDSU led 20-11 after the opening quarter.

    Seven points by Tylee Irwin fueled an 8-1 run to put South Dakota State up 28-12 with 8:07 to play in the half. UTC cut the lead to 10 points, 30-20, at 4:37 when Bouldin sank a pair of long 3-pointers to spark an 8-2 run. The Jackrabbits led 39-26 at halftime.

    The Mocs opened the third quarter with a 7-0 run to cut the lead to 39-33 at 5:19. With just a seven-point lead and 4:09 left on the clock, the Jacks outscored UTC 10-2 to close the quarter.

    Miller's fourth 3-pointer of the game gave South Dakota State a 64-48 lead with 5:12 to go. Chattanooga cut it to 10, 64-54, on a 3-pointer by Bria Dial at 3:48. Guebert then scored five consecutive points and Selland added a layup for the final points.

    Notes

    • With 17 points tonight, Miller passed Megan Vogel for second in career scoring. She now has 1,861 points, 27 points shy of first on the all-time scoring list. She also needs 139 points for 2,000 career points and 417 points to become The Summit League's all-time scorer.
    • Guebert's 11 points tonight give her 1,439 career points, six points short of 11th in career scoring at State.
    • Guebert sank three 3-pointers tonight to move her within 19 3-pointers of becoming the all-time leader at SDSU and in The Summit League.
