Still in denial that the spring sports have started:
Here is a look at what’s last in league play for each of the teams still chasing Summit League regular-season titles in basketball.
SDSU (12-3): at Omaha
Western Illinois (11-3): vs. Kansas City, vs. USD
NDSU (11-4): at Omaha
Oakland (10-4): at Fort Wayne, vs. Fort Wayne
SDSU (12-2): Omaha, at NDSU
IUPUI (9-3): at USD, at Kansas City, vs. Oakland, vs. Fort Wayne
Former SDSU player and coach Brad Seely, currently the associate head coach and special teams coordinator for the reigning NFC champion San Francisco 49ers, was at Frost Arena on Saturday night for the men’s basketball game.
With a home loss to Northwestern on Sunday, the SDSU wrestling program wrapped up its first dual season under coach Chris Bono at 5-12. Although not what the Jacks had in mind, that’s their highest win total since 2008-09.
Their next action is the West Regional meet – a qualifier for the NCAA Division I championships – at Wyoming on March 9.
The SDSU baseball team opened the season Monday morning with a pair of shutouts in a double dip against NAIA Waldorf - where head coach Dave Schrage and assistant Brian Grunzke both spent time. Next, the Jacks head to Port Charlotte, Fla., for two games against Ohio State and two against St. Bonaventure. The Buckeyes were picked fourth in the Big Ten preseason poll, while the Bonnies were tabbed 11th (out of 15) in the A-10.
Former Roosevelt High standout forward Cody Larson was spotted in Brookings on Saturday, attending the SDSU men’s basketball game with his sister, Wagner, a member of the Jacks volleyball team. Dakota Schoolers director Paul Seville said that Larson, formerly a player and currently at student at the University of Florida, has no plans for his basketball future right now and was back in the area to visit family.
