For the second weekend in a row, the Chadron State College basketball team managed just 103 points during its two games on the road and lost both contests.

South Dakota Mines built a 50-27 halftime lead and went on to win 83-57 on Friday night in Rapid City and Black Hills State was ahead 41-23 at the break and prevailed 65-46 on Saturday night in Spearfish.

The Mines Hardrockers were extra hot in the first half against the Eagles. They sank 18 of 32 shots from the field, including 11 of 21 from 3-point range. They cooled down to 10 of 27 overall and two of 10 from behind the arc in the second half, but led by at least 18 points the rest of the way.

Chadron State shot a respectable 43.4 percent from the field for the game, but was outscored 14-3 from the free throw line. The Eagles also had 22 turnovers and Mines just nine.

Sami Steffeck, a 5-10 sophomore, led the Rockers with 21 points that included five of eight shooting from long range. Freshman Ryan Wiess chipped in 16 points and sophomore Anna Haugen 15. The trio combined to make 19 of their 29 field goal shots.

Morrill freshman Jessica Harvey, who was six of 10 from the field, including four of eight from behind the arc, led the Eagles with 16 points. Center Savannah Weidauer added 10.

Turnovers again plagued the Eagles at Spearfish. They had 24. CSC shot just 30.2 percent from the field and was again overwhelmed at the free throw line, this time by an 18-9 margin.

Black Hills shot 37.7 percent from the field. A dozen Yellow Jackets scored, led by Remi Wientjes, a 5-10 senior with 14 points. The Eagles were paced by Harvey’s 10 points. Weidauer contributed eight.

The Eagles lost two players, Brooke Turek and Allee Williamson, to facial injuries early in the game at Black Hills. They also were without Australian Keeley Pearce, who graduated Friday and decided to return home, but gained senior Letty Rodriguez, who rejoined the team last weekend and made four of seven field goal shots, including four of six treys, in the two games.

CSC ended the week at 3-8 overall and 1-5 in the RMAC. Mines is now 7-4 overall and 3-3 in the RMAC. Black Hills is 10-2 and 4-2. The Yellow Jackets beat Regis 65-58 on Friday night, but the Rangers won 77-75 at Mines on Saturday night.
