Meanwhile, Southern Dakota Mines had to start their season on the road back in November, and it wasn’t the start they were hoping for. They took a serious blow against the Aggies, falling 101-48. Southern Dakota Mines found out winning isn’t easy when you don’t work as a unit and post 19 fewer assists than your opponent.

This contest is one where the number of possessions is likely to be a big factor: Wyoming have been smashing the glass this season, having averaged 34.1 rebounds per game.
