South Dakota State Shocks Washington 92-73, As Nate Wolters Dominates For Jackrabbits

The South Dakota St. Jackrabbits were considered to be a team that would lose by a sizable margin to the Washington Huskies. They didn't count on South Dakota State having the shooting game of a lifetime in Seattle.

South Dakota State hit 55% of their shots and 10 of 16 three pointers, in addition to nailing 26 of 32 free throws. SDSU compiled a 64.7 eFG% on 66 possessions, resulting in an almost unfathomable 92 points. Add in only five turnovers and you have one of the most efficient and stunning offensive performances of the season. The Jackrabbits were led by Nate Wolters, who put up 34 points, 5 rebounds and 7 assists, shooting 10 of 20 from the field and nailing 13 of 16 free throws.

Washington meanwhile had all sorts of problems with their shooting, hitting only 41 percent of their shots and going only five of 18 from downtown. Tony Wroten had a solid performance with 23 points on eight of 17 shooting, but missed five free throws. C.J. Wilcox was four of 15, Abdul Gaddy two of eight. It's another embarrassing loss for Washington, who've proven to be susceptible to blowouts this season.
