Mike Daum has been scoring points since he first put on a Jackrabbit uniform. He's gone over 3000 in his career, shattering the Jacks and Summit League career records and is 10th on all-time in NCAA Division One history. He didn't think he'd do all that.
"No not at all. It's funny I look back at my senior year of high school going into my freshman year of college I really just wanted to whatever it took to make a difference on the team, whether it was play a little bit. I just wanted to play some at the Division One level. I never thought it would come to this." says Daum.
"How that all come together in terms of points scored and records broken and championships won, I had no idea. Credit to Mike because he continues to work so hard." says head coach T.J. Otzelberger.
On the women's side, Macy Miller has shattered the Jacks career scoring record as well. And with 2223 points, she's 55 shy of the Summit League mark. The Mitchell native was expected to be a college star and she lived up to it.
"I say it's meant a lot to me the whole Jackrabbit nation has been amazing. I mean not only to me but also my teammates, the community has been amazing. Every where you go they want to talk basketball. It's cool that I can have an impact on them and they can have an impact on me." says Miller.
Fellow senior guard Madison Guebert needs 11 points to move into 4th all-time in scoring at SDSU. She's also hit more three pointers than any women's player ever.
"I mean I don't think I ever thought that I was going to break a three point record coming here. I always had confidence in my shot, but I never thought I'd break a three point record. Never thought it would happen to me I guess." says Guebert.
"I always remind people the only stat that matters when you are trying to impact a program is wins. And the three of them will have a chance to win 100 games here at South Dakota State. If you can average 25 wins a season in four years here, that's pretty remarkable." says head coach Aaron Johnston.
