South Dakota State put itself in the NCAA tournament win column -- and the record book.

The Jackrabbits made a record-tying 16 3-point shots in their tourney debut and beat TCU 90-55 Sunday.

This was the first year the Jackrabbits (32-2) were eligible for the field. Seeded seventh, they matched the tournament mark for 3s set by Harvard in 1996.

Jill Young and Kristin Rotert scored 17 points to lead the Jackrabbits (32-2) and extend their win streak to 18 games.
