South Dakota State junior Brayden Carlson gave the nation a glimpse of what head coach Scott Nagy knew was there all along.

The Brookings native got the Jackrabbits off to a fast start, scoring 16 of his team-high 20 points in the first half. SDSU led by as many as six points in the first 10 minutes; before Michigan took a 30-26 lead at halftime en route to a 71-56 second-round win in NCAA Tournament action Thursday.

“Going into the season, I thought Brayden would be an all-conference player for us,” Nagy said of the 6-foot-4, 205-pound guard. “He just didn’t have that kind of season; he really struggled with his shot.

“I was pleased to see it show up tonight and I expect to see that as we go into next season. This is a good finish for him and he’ll work hard in the summer, as will the other guys."
