SDSU WBB…Megan Waytashek led four Jackrabbits in scoring as the South Dakota State women’s basketball team defeated Northern Illinois Tuesday in front of 1,511 fans at Frost Arena.
   The win was SDSU’s 200th Division I win while extending the Jackrabbits’ home winning streak to 10 games and an overall win streak to five games.
   Waytashek had game highs of 19 points, seven rebounds and five assists while shooting 5 of 9 from the field and 7 for 7 from the free-throw line. Also in double figures were Megan Stuart with 14 points off the bench and Hannah Strop and Kerri Young with 10 points each.
   Amanda Corral’s 14 points and six rebounds led Northern Illinois.
   The Jackrabbits lead almost the entire game except when Corral sank a three-pointer and had back-to-back layups over a 2:14 span in the first half to give Northern Illinois a 23-22 lead at 4:28. The Jacks regained the lead, 29-23, with a 7-0 run fueled by three-pointers from Strop and Chloe Cornemann.
   SDSU’s bench scored 32 of the Jacks’ 67 points. The Jackrabbits sank 21 of 29 free throws and added eight three-pointers.
   South Dakota State begins a three-game road trip when it travels to Middle Tennessee Saturday for a 1 p.m. game.

At Roosevelt High School, Beaner was a 2012 first team all-state, state all-tournament, all-city, all-conference and all-star selection. She also was a 2012 state academic and conference all-academic honoree. The three-time letterwinner and two-time captain was named the 2012 South Dakota AA Miss Volleyball and the 2013 Outstanding Female Athlete.
