Back to the grind after a nice holiday. How was yours?
Let’s get to some USD basketball talk.
More than likely, it will be a light week for the Coyote men’s basketball team. USD, 6-7, hosts a pair of NAIA home games this week, with Midland tonight (Tuesday) and Doane on Thursday.
These are games simply to fill the schedule and don’t really bring with them too much attention.
But from our end, we hope you still tune in for our Live Game Chats.
On the other hand, for the South Dakota women, this week features a tough road game at an established mid-major power.
USD travels to Green Bay, Wis. to face No. 23rd-ranked Wisconsin-Green Bay tonight (Tuesday). It marks the third NCAA Tournament qualifier the Coyotes have played this season — previously USD faced Dayton and Northern Iowa.
Green Bay is also ranked No. 1 in the CollegeInsider.com mid-major top 25 poll. The Phoenix are 4-0 at home this season, winning by an average margin of 31.8 points. They have also defeated Wisconsin, Penn State and Minnesota already this season.
