Shirt color not to wear: Blue/Yellow/Rabbit Skin
Opposing players to watch: Nate Wolters
Nate Wolters is in a lot of ways the Rex Burkhead of South Dakota as he is notorious enough to have his own fake twitter account. (Sadly, FakeNateWolters >>> FakeRexBurkhead) The "Bachelor of Brookings" is dominating the team in points per game, shots, assists, and Google hits. The starting point guard will touch the ball on every possession and his 36.5 minute per game average indicates he literally might be on the court for all of them. His lowest point total is 15 against Georgia...it will be interesting to see if Bo or Branden is given the task of slowing down the Jackrabbit General.
Opposing players to watch: Tony Fiegen
The Jacks have only one player over 6-6 who receives significant playing time and it's Fiegen. If having to deal with JBD, Christopher Neimann, and Toney McCray isn't enough, he also has to deal with any sort of crap Brandon Ubel might receive for having the reddest hair on the court. Expect the Jack's "big man" to have a long day though he might feel encouragement by the constant chants of "Go Big Red."
Possible Lineups (Jackrabbits)
Possible Lineups (Huskers)
|C||Jorge Brian Diaz||6-11||Jr.||12.8|
If the Summit League sounds familiar, it's because that's where new Division I team Nebraska-Omaha now calls home. Other familiar faces include South Dakota, UMKC, Oakland, and IUPUI. The offensive minded Jackrabbits should give an indication of how much the Huskers worked on defense during practice on Friday and how much that message resounded with the team. Don't worry about points as height challenged SDSU is one of the worst defensive teams in Division I. The Huskers are 11-0 all time vs. SDSU...expect that winning percentage to stay the same.
Prediction: Huskers 78 - Jackrabbits 62 with a 21% chance of Runzas
