Jackrabbits Hunting for More Victories

The Jackrabbits come into the matchup after a convincing 68-51 win over Denver on Saturday, where Paige Meyer led the charge with 17 points. They boast a balanced attack with three players averaging in double figures: Brooklyn Meyer (15.4 points, 8.8 rebounds), Paige Meyer (15.2 points, 3.2 assists, 1.7 steals), and Madison Mathiowetz (10.8 points). Their strong shooting form (44.3% field goal percentage) and stingy defense (36.9% opponent field goal percentage) have been key to their success.

Golden Eagles Aim to Bounce Back

Oral Roberts is looking to rebound from a narrow 73-72 loss to St. Thomas, despite Hannah Cooper’s stellar 20-point performance. They are a high-scoring team, averaging 78.5 points per game, led by Taleyah Jones’ 16.8 points per game. Ruthie Udoumoh anchors the paint with 9.7 rebounds and 11.8 points per game, while Cooper dishes out a team-high 3.9 assists per game. Their three-point shooting (34.4% success rate) could be a factor against South Dakota State’s stout defense.

Key Matchup:

The battle inside the paint will be crucial, with Brooklyn Meyer’s rebounding prowess facing off against Udoumoh’s dominance. Paige Meyer’s playmaking skills will be tested against Cooper’s defensive tenacity. Ultimately, the team that can control the tempo and execute their game plan with greater efficiency will likely emerge victorious.

Prediction:

This is a close matchup between two well-matched teams. South Dakota State’s home-court advantage and recent momentum could give them a slight edge. However, Oral Roberts’ offensive firepower and experience shouldn’t be underestimated. Expect a tightly contested battle with the winner potentially taking control of the Summit League race.
