Spearfish, S.D. – The Black Hills State University Yellow Jackets win the Dakota Athletic Conference regular season and are the number one seed heading into playoffs with a 79-69 victory over the Dickinson State University Blue Hawks.
The Yellow Jackets had a big game from two of their stars, juniors Luke Enos and Cain Atkinson both netted 29 points. They each showed their leadership capabilities with the game on the line they both stepped up. Atkinson knocked down five three point shots to rally the Yellow Jackets to the victory.
“We did a great job coming back after a sluggish first half to keep competing “ Said Assistant Coach Bradd Schafer “This was part of our goal coming into the season, and we still have a long ways to go before the season is over.”
The Jackets will host the first round of the Dakota Athletic Conference play-offs Wednesday evening at the Donald E. Young Center in Spearfish.
