SDSU women's basketball team sinks five straight half-court shots

...and that's H-O-R-S-E.

If you're looking for some partners for a game of H-O-R-S-E, the members of the South Dakota State women's basketball team might be a good place to start.

Prior to their game at North Dakota on Thursday night, members of the team passed some time by tossing up some shots at half court. With the cameras rolling and the pressure mounting, the Jackrabbits sank five straight half-court shots to heat up a frigid day in Grand Forks.

The hot display of shooting didn't count in what would be a 74-61 victory over the Fighting Hawks later that night but did show the type of talent the Jackrabbits have as they come down the stretch.

With their win over North Dakota, the Jackrabbits improved to 20-8 on the season and sit in second place in the Horizon League with a record of 12-2. The team ahead of them is rival South Dakota, who strolled into Brookings on Saturday ranked 20th in the country on the heels of a 14-game winning streak.

Hopefully, for the Jackrabbits, they can keep this hot shooting display going as they make a march toward a potential bid in the NCAA tournament.
