The Jacks won twice against Pac-12 Conference teams in Washington 87-76 on Nov. 23, 2021 followed by Washington State 77-74 on Dec. 11, 2021. SDSU fell to then-No. 14 Alabama 104-88 on Nov. 12, 2021, in the Jacks’ only game against a ranked opponent.

Baylor Scheierman leads the Jacks in scoring with 16.3 points per game. The 6-foot-6 sophomore guard also averages eight rebounds, 4.6 assists, and 1.4 steals per night.

Scheierman also has a the most dangerous three-point shot among the Jacks’ long-range shooters. He hits 47.5% of his three-pointers — best among Jacks who take three or more three-point shots per game. Douglas Wilson, Noah Freidel, and Zeke Mayo average 40% of better from the arc.

Kruz Perott-Hunt leads the Coyotes in scoring with 14.9 points per game. The junior guard also averages 4.3 rebounds and 2.3 assists per night. He scored 13 points in the Coyotes’ 74-61 quarterfinal win over Kansas City on Sunday.

Perott-Hunt and company will look to avoid the first three-game sweep in the series between the two in-state rivals since the 1979-1980 season.
