Jarnell Stokes scored 19 points as Tennessee relied on suffocating defense to roll to a 77-50 victory over cold-shooting Oakland. Oakland shot just 28.6 percent overall and went 2-of-16 from 3-point range.
WOMEN’S BB…Amy Carlton and Elena Popkey had 12 points each to lead Oakland to a 78-53 win over Michigan-Dearborn. Five players finished in double-figures for the Golden Grizzlies.
IPFW outscored Indiana 27-26 in the second half, but the Hoosiers pulled out a 64-47 win. Amanda Hyde had eleven points and eigh rebounds – Rachel Mauk had ten points, two assists and two steals.
BHS GYMNASTICS…It’s a mix of the old and new for this year’s Brookings High School gymnastics team.
Head coach Rachelle Engbrecht returns six seniors, juniors and sophomores with experience – along with six brand-new faces on the 25-athlete roster. 97621 :16 “look out like”.
The Bobcats held their intrasquad meet last week, but Engbrecht says the team needs a taste of interscholastic competition. 97622 :28 “else shuffles in”.
Brookings opens Tuesday at Huron – Engbrecht says that’s a good season opener. 97623 :14 “our varsity squad”.
The Bobcats’ big invitational – the Patty Jorgensen meet – comes up in January.
DENVER TO SUMMIT…CBS Sports is reporting the University of Denver will join the nine-team Summit League starting in 2013.
The school has announced a Tuesday press conference, saying that it regards “conference affiliation.”
Already in the conference are Fort Wayne, IUPUI, Kansas City, Nebraska-Omaha, North Dakota State, Oakland, South Dakota, South Dakota State and Western Illinois.
Denver joined the Western Athletic Conference (WAC) in July after leaving the Sun Belt Conference last season.
GIRLS HOCKEY…The Brookings varsity girls hockey team posted an 11-0 win over Sioux Falls over the weekend.
Hallie Theodosopoulos had four goals, while Sierra Winter and Jade Chasing Hawk added two apiece. Amy Munsterman had four assists.
Theodosopoulos scored two more goals in a 6-0 win over Mitchell.
The J-V team defeated Sioux Falls 2-1, as Deanna Robinson and Lauren Moody scored goals.
Devyn Prodoehl and Karlee Krogman were the winning goaltenders.
DeHAVEN HOF…South Dakota State track and cross country coach Rod DeHaven is one of eleven who will be inducted into the South Dakota Sports Hall of Fame next April.
The Huron native says he developed his love of running in middle and high school. He says SDSU’s success at the national Division II level brought him to Brookings to compete collegiately. 97624 :16 “come to SDSU”.
DeHaven earned 16 All-America certificates, won 20 individual NCC championships and was on a cross country national championship team – he says he couldn’t envision that success. 97625 :29 “little bit more”.
DeHaven also won the U-S Olympic trials, and was the U-S team that competed in the 2000 Sydney games. He says it’s all part of his coaching philosophy. 97626 :40 “possibly can be”.
DeHaven says his program’s about to get a boost – SDSU is on the cusp of building an indoor practice facility that will include a 300-meter track.
