BOULDER, Colo. – The Jackrabbits were a step behind – and perhaps a step below – fourth-seeded South Carolina in Saturday’s NCAA Norfolk Regional Tournament game at the Coors Event Center on the campus of the University of Colorado.

After trailing 14-13 eight minutes into the game, the Gamecocks closed out the first half with a 31-12 run on the way to a 74-52 first-round win over No. 13 seeded South Dakota State.

“(South Carolina’s) a really great team and really well coached,” said SDSU head coach Aaron Johnston. “They’ve got really good players in a lot of positions; they get people in the right spots and they don’t make a lot of mistakes. We had a 10-minute stretch where we let it get away from us, and I thought we never recovered. We got spread out in our half-court defense and gave up some shots that were too easy. Offensively, we got unraveled, missed shots, and committed some turnovers. We said in our press conference (Friday) that we’d have to play well to win, and today we didn’t play that well. Some of that is us, and some of that is South Carolina – that’s the way the game went.”
