SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – South Dakota State senior Mike Daum collected his sixth #SummitMBB Player of the Week award after league officials recognized his standout performance in a road win at North Dakota. It was Daum's first weekly honor since league play began and he
is one shy of tying his own single-season record that he shares with Nate Wolters (SDSU; 2012-13) for most in a single season.

Daum played all 40 minutes in the Jackrabbits' 78-74 victory as he registered his 12th double-double of the season and 44th of his career. His 34-point, 21-rebound effort was just the fourth 30-20 game recorded in NCAA Division I this season. The 21 rebounds are tied for the seventh most all-time in a Summit League game.

Seven of Daum's career-high board total came on the offensive end as he helped the Jacks hold a 15-5 edge in second-chance points. He finished 14-for-24 from the field and added three assists and two blocks to keep SDSU atop the league standings.
