USD to Host Opening Round of WNIT
The 64-team bracket was announced late Monday. The winner will face either Iowa or Missouri State in the second round at a date and time to be determined.
As the reigning WNIT Champions, South Dakota (22-8) earned an at-large bid to the tournament after finishing with an 11-5 record in the Summit League. USD is one of three league teams to earn a spot in the WNIT as the league boasted its best RPI (11th) in history at the end of the regular season. The Coyotes are competing in a postseason tournament for the seventh consecutive season with its fourth WNIT appearance in that span. South Dakota is 8-2 all-time in the WNIT.
South Dakota and North Dakota meet for the 73rd time in program history and fourth time in consecutive seasons. For information on purchasing tickets, please visit GoYotes.com, by phone at 605-677-5959 or in person at the Coyote Ticket Office.
