BROOKINGS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) - The Jackrabbit women’s basketball team is on a big win streak, though their eleventh straight victory didn’t come easily yesterday against Western Illinois.

South Dakota State shot just 30 percent through the first three quarters and only held a four point lead in the fourth quarter. That’s when the Jackrabbits showed their veteran mettle, shooting nearly 60 percent in the final period and outscoring the Leathernecks 32-15 to pull away for an 81-58 victory.

SDSU hits the road for swing up north with games at UND on Thursday and NDSU on Saturday.
