SIOUX FALLS -- For the sixth time this season, South Dakota State's Mike Daum was selected as the Summit League's Athlete of the Week, announced Monday by the league office.
In SDSU's lone contest for the week, Daum put together a monster 34-point, 21-rebound showing to help the Jackrabbits defeat the North Dakota Fighting Hawks last Thursday. Daum set a new career-high in rebounds and notched his 12th double-double of the season. The Kimball, Nebraska native recorded the fourth 30-20 game in NCAA Division I this season and had SDSU's first-ever 20-plus rebounding total in its Division I history.
Daum, who has picked up the league's weekly honor 17 times as a Jackrabbit, currently sits 20th on the NCAA's all-time scoring chart with 2,740 career points.
South Dakota State is back in action Thursday night when longtime rival North Dakota State comes to town. The Jackrabbits and Bison tip at 7 p.m. from Frost Arena.
