USD Women Host WNIT Final
The Summit League posted on its website Thursday that the Coyotes are the first team in the league to compete for a national postseason tournament championship.
Six USD players scored in double figures Wednesday and the Coyotes shot 54 percent from the field to defeat Oregon 88-54 in front of a crowd of 5,080 fans. (Read the game summary.) They drowned out Coach Amy Williams when she announced USD will host the WNIT final game at 2 p.m. Saturday. The Coyotes find out Thursday evening if they meet Michigan or Florida Gulf Coast.
The shot of Wednesday’s game came with six minutes left when senior guard Tia Hemiller sunk a one-handed throw from half court as the shot clock buzzed. It started out as the No. 2 top 10 play on SportsCenter but ended the evening as No. 1. (Watch the play.)
Tickets for the championship game can be purchased online at GoYotes.com, by phone at 605-677-5959 or in person at the Coyote Ticket Office. The game will also be nationally televised on CBS Sports Network.
