SIOUX FALLS - Fresh off one of the more memorable buzzer-beaters in Jackrabbit basketball history, South Dakota State's David Jenkins was announced Monday as the Summit League's Co-Player of the Week.
Jenkins, who averaged 29 points over two games, also set the school's single-season 3-point record and tied SDSU's top mark for 3-pointers in a single game during the Jacks' final road trip of the year.
The Tacoma, Washington native finished with 34 points against Omaha, going 10-of-15 from beyond the arc to match teammate Mike Daum's single-game record. He capped the week by scoring 24 against North Dakota State and dishing a career-high six assists. Additionally, Jenkins buried all nine of his attempts at the free throw line against the Bison, and with time running out on the road sank a half-court, game-winning shot off the glass to complete a 17-point Jackrabbit comeback. The sophomore guard has now hit 98 3-pointers in 2018-19, setting a new Jackrabbit record for 3s in a season by passing Daum's previous mark of 96 (set in 2017-18).
This is Jenkins' first weekly honor for the 2018-19 season and second of his career. He shared the honors this week with Omaha's Zach Jackson.
The Jackrabbits return to action Thursday at Frost Arena as Purdue Fort Wayne comes to town for a 7 p.m. tip.
