    SDSU WBB: Two-Game Homestand Starts Wednesday

    After a five-game road swing that started in mid-December and had the South Dakota State women's basketball team playing in four states, the Jackrabbits return to the friendly confines of Frost Arena for a two-game homestand which starts Wednesday at 7 p.m. against Denver.

    SDSU enters Wednesday's game with a 10-6 overall record and 2-1 mark in The Summit League standings, while the Pioneers are 10-7 overall and sport a 3-1 league record.

    The Jacks had a two-game win streak snapped with a 105-98 double-overtime loss at South Dakota Sunday. Summit League Player of the Year candidate Macy Miller scored a career-tying and game-high 31 points to lead four Jackrabbits in double figures in scoring.

    Denver won its last two games at home. The Pioneers downed South Dakota, 104-99, Jan. 3 and North Dakota, 87-66, Jan. 5.
