The South Dakota State Jackrabbits and Kansas State Wildcats face off on Monday in a college basketball showdown at Bramlage Coliseum. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.
Kansas State Looks for First Cover
Kansas State comes into this game with a 1-1 record, and they don’t have a cover yet. In the first game against USC, Kansas State was defeated 82-69 and in the last game against Bellarmine, Kansas State only won by eight points. The offense was impressive in that game, but the defense was a major issue. Guard Tylor Perry was the top player for Kansas State, putting up 18 points, five rebounds, and four assists. There were four different players that finished with at least 12 points. In this game, the defense is going to need to step up in a big way.
Can South Dakota State Bounce Back?
South Dakota State has played only one game so far this season, and they were defeated 81-75 at the hands of the Akron Zips. At halftime, they were only down two points, and in the second half they couldn’t do a whole lot more and ended up losing by six. Guard Zeke Mayo is the top player on this team and he had a strong game, putting up 28 points, five rebounds, and two assists. There were four different players that finished with at least 10 points.
Shane’s Free Pick
There isn’t going to be a whole lot of defense played by either side in this game. Kansas State’s defense looked bad in the last game, and South Dakota State has proven they have an offense that can run up the score. This South Dakota defense though is a problem and they are going to really struggle to defend here. There will be a ton of made shots in this game, and this game is going to go over the total.
