RAPID CITY --- The South Dakota School of Mines men’s and women’s basketball teams ran into two very
solid Black Hills State squads this past Thursday in not only a Dakota Athletic Conference matchup but
also a big rivalry contest at the King Center in Rapid City.
Both the Yellow Jacket teams were ranked nationally. The Lady Jackets had the N0. 10 ranking in the Div.
II NAIA Top 25 coaches poll last week while the BHSU men were in ninth place.
In the women’s bout, it was a tale of two halves as the Yellow Jackets won the first-period battle, 47-27,
but the Lady Hardrockers fought back in the second half and were able to cut the 20-point deficit down
to seven points at one point as SD Mines outscored BHSU, 36-28 over the 20 minutes. The hump was
just too high to get over however as the Yellow Jackets escaped with a 75-63 victory.
Individually for the Hardrockers, Bethany Holyoak (a junior from Moorcroft, Wyo.) paced the team with
18 points, eight rebounds and three blocks. Teammates Jerika Ihnen (sophomore from Tea, S.D.) and
Stephanie Bjustrom (sophomore from Algona, Iowa) both contributed with 10 markers. The Hardrockers
had a very impressive eight blocks in the game. Along with Holyoak’s three, Ihnen was credited with
two, Loryn Schuetzle (sophomore from Pierre, S.D.) collected two and Leah Sundby (junior from
Williston, N.D.) recorded one.
The Hardrockers record now stands at 6-13 on the season and 2-3 in conference play and tied for fifth
place in the DAC standings. SDM will next see action Friday and Saturday as the Hardrockers welcome
Jamestown College and Valley City State.
RAPID CITY --- Thursday’s matchup between Black Hills State and South Dakota School of Mines had
been hyped all week prior to the game --- so much so that Goodell Gymnasium had seen the most fans
in quite a number of years in a sellout crowd.
“We had a great crowd and a great college game atmosphere,” said Hardrocker men’s head coach Jason
Henry. ��It was an exciting game for the guys to be a part of, and overall I think we kept our poise and
played pretty well.”
It was a game in which the No. 9 ranked Yellow Jackets went head-to-head with the formerly 21st ranked
Hardrockers. Add in the fact that it was a rivalry game and atmosphere and the recipe was perfect for a
In the end, it was a game of runs and unfortunately for SD Mines, it was the Jackets that came away with
the final charge as the won the bout, 64-57.
BHSU jumped out to a 33-22 halftime advantage, but the second half saw the Hardrockers erase that
margin and take the lead on several occasions over the final 20 minutes. The Hardrockers put up 35
points to BHSU’s 31 but couldn’t get themselves in position as time expired.
“It was defiantly a game of runs,” Henry said. “For us only to score 22 points in the first half really hurt
Individually for the Hardrockers, junior Robbie Fedor (Monticello, Minn.) led the charge for his team
with 13 points while Brandon Smith (Amenia, N.D.) added nine and Carl Johnson (Rapid City, S.D.) and AJ
Trennepohl (sophomore from Lubbock, Texas) both chipped in eight.
After winning 11 straight games which tied a school record, the Hardrockers have now dropped three in
a row. The bad part about that is the three losses have all been conference games. SD Mines is 13-6 on
the season and 2-3 in conference play and are now fourth in the DAC standings. The ‘Rockers will be
looking to get back to their winning ways this weekend when they host Jamestown College and Valley
