The South Dakota State University women's basketball team made a smooth transition to the realm of Division I during the 2004-05 school year.I dunno, volleyball players are pretty smart, too . . . (hi, Snookums!)
Not only did the Jackrabbits compile a winning record against D-I opposition with an 8-7 record en route to a 21-7 season, but SDSU posted the second-highest team grade-point average in Division I to earn a spot on the Women's Basketball Coaches Associationís Academic Top 25 Team Honor Roll.
The Jackrabbits' 3.567 team GPA trailed only the 3.602 GPA turned in by Indiana State. Eastern Washington, 3.498; North Dakota State, 3.476, and Iowa State, 3.461 rounded out the top five.
