It was a rather big day for the University of South Dakota women’s basketball program.

Improbable isn’t quite the right word. USD was, after all, the No. 4 seed in the Summit League Championships.
The Coyotes rallied from a 17-point hole in the first round to beat Western Illinois. They then run around, through, past, over, etc. South Dakota State in the semifinals. And gutted out a tough title game with conference newcomer Denver (the No. 6 seed).
Huge opportunity here for the USD women. You’re talking national exposure now. Beating SDSU brings you regional exposure. Reaching the NCAA Tournament brings your program and your school in front of a national audience.
