Savannah State (3-7, 2-7 D1) at South Dakota State (8-3, 7-3 D1) – 8:00 PM EST (ESPN+)
Tonight’s UTR Game of the Day takes us to Brookings, South Dakota where the Jackrabbits of South Dakota State play host to the Team of the People – the Savannah State Tigers. The Tigers resume play after a 10-day layoff for exams – their last outing was a 97-60 loss at Gardner-Webb. Savannah’s last victory came against Alcorn State back in November in a neutral-court game played on Liberty’s campus. The Tigers continue to remain among the leaders nationally in game tempo; they score over 80 points a game (led by Jaquan Dotson’s 11.9 points a game) but give up a whopping 96 points a game in return.
The Jackrabbits come into tonight’s game following a 101-92 win at home against Southern University last Saturday. Their most noteworthy wins so far (which may not be saying much by recent SDSU standards) are against Grand Canyon and Colorado State. Losses at Florida Gulf Coast and on a neutral court against Tulane will sting, however. While Mike Daum is one of the nation’s best players with 25.2 points a game and 10.3 rebounds a game, don’t sleep on David Jenkins either – he averages 22 points a game for the Jackrabbits as well.
