VERMILLION, S.D. (KWSN)– Trips to NCAA Tournament qualifiers Iowa State, Nebraska and Creighton as well as home games in three South Dakota cities highlight the South Dakota women’s basketball schedule released by head coach Amy Williams on Wednesday.

USD will start its NCAA qualifier triumvirate with a trip to Iowa State on Nov. 13 for the third game of the season. They’ll travel to Omaha almost two weeks later to play Creighton on Nov. 26 and then to Nebraska on Dec. 21. Each of those teams won in the first round of the tournament last season.

The Coyotes’ season will begin with four road games, starting with a trip to the west coast to play Cal State Fullerton on Nov. 8 and UC Irvine on Nov. 10. After Iowa State, the ‘Yotes will travel up I-29 for a game at North Dakota (Nov. 17).

The first game at the DakotaDome will be on Nov. 24 against Boise State. The Coyotes will host three postseason teams from last season in Wyoming (Nov. 30), Utah State (Dec. 5) and Northern Iowa (Dec. 10) at the Dome.

Two games outside of Vermillion will be used as home dates, but will be counted as neutral site games for RPI and other competitive purposes. USD will host Drake at the Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls on Nov. 21 and take on the South Dakota School of Mines at the Rushmore Civic Center in Rapid City on Dec. 7. 

In Summit League play, USD will be on the road for five of its first seven, starting with a trip to Denver on Jan. 12. The first league home game will be against Western Illinois on Jan. 23. Rematches of last season’s league championship game with South Dakota State will be held in Brookings on Feb. 2 and in Vermillion on March 2. 

All seven Summit League postseason eligible teams will qualify for the Summit League Tournament at the Sioux Falls Arena starting March 8.  The top-seeded team will have a bye to the semifinals.
