Coyotes Need Win Over Jackrabbits To Lock Down Prime Post Season Position

There’s still a little bit of wiggle room for South Dakota with one game to play in the regular season.  The Coyotes still have designs on the number three spot in next week’s Summit League Tournament, and the potential day off between quarterfinal and semifinal games if they manage to secure it.

All that stands in their way is the three-time defending regular season champs, and their biggest rival, South Dakota State.

A win over the Jackrabbits Sunday in Vermillion would move USD to 8-6 in conference play and give them a tiebreaker if they finished deadlocked with Fort Wayne for third in the standings.

The Coyotes will come into Sunday’s game on the heels of a come-from-behind win at home Thursday against last place North Dakota State.

USD was down as many as 19 to the Bison, as pair of NDSU players each scored 31 points at the DakotaDome, but Polly Harrington’s 23 points and a double-double from Tia Hemiller helped secure the Coyotes’ 11th win in 12 home games this season.

SUMMIT LEAGUE RECAP: USD 95 NDSU 87 (OT)

Sunday it will be USD’s 11-1 home record against SDSU’s 12-1 regular season record.  The Jackrabbits used a 31-19 first half run to pull away from the Coyotes in last month’s game in Brookings before winning by 19. USD shot just 35 percent in the second half of a game that was marred by 59 total fouls.

USD head coach Amy Williams told me her team needs to work harder for better opportunities in the rematch:
