Jackrabbit coach feels Dons are 'tough matchup'

Monday, March 10, 2014 11:20 am
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. - South Dakota State mens basketball coach Scott Nagy spoke with the media Sunday following his team's victory over Western Illinois in the Summit League Tournament.

The Jackrabbits will face IPFW today at 9:30 p.m. (EST) in the semifinal round and Nagy spoke on the Mastodons."They're a tough matchup. I haven't looked at their stuff in a long time. We haven't played them in a long time. Back when we did play them, I think they had eight different guys average at least eight points per game or better. From a stats standpoint, I think it's a shame for them because they end up with fewer guys getting all-league honors because they're so spread out and very balanced.

"But they are bring the (Summit League) Sixth Man of the Year off of the bench. They're tough kids (and) well coached.""Their point guard, Pierre Bland, he didn't get anything (in postseason honors). And I think he just might be their most important player."
