For the first time
in two years, The South Dakota State men's basketball schedule does not feature
a trip to the tropics, but the 2010-11 schedule does send the Jackrabbits to
Canada for four exhibition games and features a home-heavy start to the regular
"This is by far our
best schedule since we made the move to Division I, and the best part is that our
players only miss two days of class the entire fall semester," SDSU head men's
basketball coach Scott Nagy said. "We have several home games in November and
December that should be of great interest to our fans, and with a very young
team, it will help tremendously to play games at home during that period. Coach
(Rob) Klinkefus did an excellent job helping put this together."
After starting the
season on the road at Eastern Illinois and at Iowa, the Jacks return home for a
season-long seven game homestand, which includes those games of interest that
Nagy referred to, a return from Eastern Illinois and games against Division I
foes Idaho State, Nevada and UW-Milwaukee.
The homestand also
encompasses the start of Summit League play, when the Jacks host North Dakota
State on Dec. 4.
play a total of 29 regular season games, 15 of them at home, 14 on the road,
with the season-long road trip coming during the holiday break with games at
Western Michigan, Central Michigan and Minnesota leading into the first league
road games of the season on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day, respectively.
