PREDICTION THAT WILL BE WRONG
South Dakota State is a late add to the tournament, but should be decent competition for the Mountaineers. The Jackrabbits are the favorites to win the Summit League title this year, and are returning all five of their starters from last season’s 22-10 squad.
With that said, this one shouldn’t be particularly close although the final score may suggest otherwise.
West Virginia 81, South Dakota State 69
