Among the highlights for this Jackrabbit was the entry on page 41 of the 2005 NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Championship official program, in the article All Across America: News and Notes from the 2004-05 Season by Blake Whitney:
January 5, 2005 — South Dakota State 86, Alabama 83
The former Division II power Jackrabbits, who won’t be come full-fledged Division I members until 2008-09, picked up their second victory against a Southeastern Conference team with a three-point win in Tuscaloosa. The Jackrabbits beat Kentucky, 57-55, and routed Big 12 member Oklahoma State, 89-61, earlier in the season. South Dakota State, which also pushed then-No. 20 Purdue to the limit before losing by seven points, looks to have a bright future in Division I.
You might think my priorities are out of whack, but I do bleed yellow and blue, after all.
Now Snookums and I are settling in to watch the rest of the Rutgers-Tennessee game (Rocky Top!).
