UW recruit puts up big numbers for the Roosevelt (S.D.) Rough Riders

Joe Krabbenhoft did a little bit of everything in two big wins for Roosevelt (Sioux Falls, S.D.) High School this weekend.

The University of Wisconsin class of 2005 recruit tallied 34 points, 27 rebounds and 11 assists in leading No. 2 Roosevelt to a pair of wins over top-five opponents in the state of South Dakota.

Friday night Krabbenhoft scored 16 points while contributing 14 rebounds and six assists in a 67-38 drubbing of No. 5 Rapid City Stevens.

Krabbenhoft and the Rough Riders were at it again Saturday night, pounding No. 4 Rapid City Central 58-42. Krabbenhoft had 18 points, 13 rebounds and five assists in that contest.

Roosevelt is 7-2 overall this season and 5-1 in the Greater Dakota Conference.

One of the Rough Riders' losses came Dec. 28 at the hands of Milwaukee Vincent and another UW recruit, Marcus Landry, as part of the Badger Classic holiday event at the UW Field House in Madison, Wis. Krabbenhoft scored a game-high 24 points in the 59-44 loss, connecting on 8 of 19 field goals and 3 of 5 3-pointers.

Roosevelt opened the event Dec. 27 with a 60-43 win over West Allis Hale. Krabbenhoft had 14 points in just over half a game's work in that rout.
