College Hoops - Trailblazers to much for BHSU men and women

BHSU Athletics - December 7, 2019

ST. GEORGE, UT – A hot Dixie State couldn't be contained as they rolled past the Black Hills State University men's basketball team 76-54. The #16 Trailblazers remain undefeated while the Yellow Jackets fall to 3-5 and 1-2 in the RMAC.

The first half of the game was slow and defensive. At half, Dixie State only had a slight advantage 28-21. Offense's heated up the second half, and while BHSU put up 33 points, it was no match for the Trailblazers 48.

The Yellow Jackets made just 19 of 49 shots from the field, 7 of 24 from beyond the arc, and, faltering from the norm, only hit 60 percent of their free throws. The team pulled down 26 rebounds, 22 of them defensive.

Tyler Oliver had a balanced night, leading the team with 15 points and 7 rebounds. He was good for three three-pointers on six attempts for the night. Joel Scott and Stefan Desnica both posted double digit point with 13 and 10 respectively. The bench only put up 10 points tonight.


A balanced attack from Morgan Ham and Racquel Wientjes was not enough to lift the Yellow Jackets over Dixie State as the Yellow Jackets drop their second road game of the weekend. A big second half push by the Trailblazers saw the Yellow Jackets falling 65-71.

Black Hills started out the game on top, outscoring Dixie state IN both the first and second quarters. Shooting 45% from the field and 100% from the foul line, the Jackets took the lead heading into the locker room. Capitalizing on Dixie's mistakes, the Yellow Jackets scored 24 of their points off of Trailblazer turnovers.

The start of second half, BHSU came out of cold, shooting just 33% from the field. Dixie State came out and pulled down 10 second chance points in the third quarter. The Dixie State bench was key in this game, providing the Trailblazers with 35 points compared to Black Hills State's 18.

On the night, the Green and Gold faired better from the field, shooting 41 percent, but couldn't make the long bucket, making just two of 15 three point attempts. From the charity stripe, the Yellow Jackets made 61 percent of their shots.

Morgan Ham lead the Yellow Jacket offense with 19 points followed by Racquel Wientjes with 18. Wientjes was good for 7 of 14 buckets from the field Abby Switzer lead on the defensive side of things by pulling down 10 rebounds.
