The South Dakota State Jackrabbits and Washington Huskies face off on Tuesday in a college basketball showdown at the Sanford Pentagon.
The South Dakota State Jackrabbits have played well to start the season sitting with a 5-1 record overall and they have gone 4-1 against the spread. On Monday South Dakota State’s offense was elite putting up 102 points and that was enough to come away with the victory. The Jackrabbits are averaging 90.7 points while their defense is giving up 75.2 points per game. This is a team that wants to push the pace, Guard Noah Freidel has been the best player for South Dakota State averaging 19.2 points while shooting 53.3 percent from the field and 46.2 percent from behind the three point line. South Dakota is shooting 44.1 percent from behind the three point line.
On the other side of this matchup is the Washington Huskies who have been inconsistent this season sitting with a 3-2 record overall The two losses were against Northern Illinois and Wyoming. In that Wyoming game they forced overtime, but it wasn’t enough as they were defeated. On Monday, Washington was able to beat George Mason 77-74, but there still has to be some concern after that game. The defense really struggled in the second half giving up 51 points and in this game if they want to win, their defense is going to need to be better. The best player for Washington has been Terrell Brown Jr. who is averaging 20.8 points while shooting 40.5 percent from the field. Washington is 1-6 against the spread in their last seven games on Tuesday. Washington is 1-6 against the spread in their last seven neutral site games. The over is 4-0 in South Dakota State’s last four neutral site games.
South Dakota State is an elite offensive team, and they are going to have no issue running up the score again in this game. I don’t know if it’s going to be enough to come away with a cover of the spread, but it will be enough to push this game over the total.
