SDSU Takes on Towson at Sanford Pentagon

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – The South Dakota State men’s basketball team will take on the Towson Tigers in a non-conference matchup at the Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, on Dec. 1. This marks the 19th time SDSU will compete at the Sanford Pentagon, while it will be the first time Towson plays on Heritage Court.

South Dakota State, a member of the Summit League, is coming off a 19-13 season which saw the Jackrabbits advance to the semifinals of the Summit League Tournament. Head coach Eric Henderson leads a South Dakota State team that has been one of the most successful men’s basketball programs over the past decade. The Jackrabbits have totaled 226 wins in the last 10 seasons, ranking 28th among all Division I men’s programs during that stretch.

Three players return from the 2022-23 season that earned recognition from the Summit League. Zeke Mayo was an All-Summit League First Team selection, Matt Mims was picked to the All-Defensive Team and William Kyle III was a selection to the All-Newcomer Team.

This game will be the fourth NCAA Division I men’s basketball game announced for this season at the Sanford Pentagon. Auburn plays Baylor on Nov. 7, Nebraska takes on Oregon State on Nov. 18 and Oregon matches up against Syracuse on Dec. 17.
