VERMILLION — Amy Williams was wrapping up her team’s quarterfinal run through the NAIA Tournament. Nicole Seekamp was in street clothes on the bench watching her Coyotes compete in another tournament.

Now, they’re joined together as coach and player for the University of South Dakota women’s basketball team, which hosts McNeese State tonight (Thursday) at 7 p.m. in the Women’s Basketball Invitational (WBI) semifinals at the DakotaDome.
“It’s been a whirlwind,” Williams said before a team practice this week. “I feel like most of the year I’ve been dog-paddling, trying to keep my head above water. But here we are.”
