The University of South Dakota brought even more excitement recently with the commitment of 2016 Minnesota Centennial High School guard Tyler Peterson.

Tyler will bring a lot to the table for the Coyote basketball program and will fit in nicely with the already talented roster.

I myself have always been a University of South Dakota sports fan (for better or worse) and I am quite excited about this commitment. Coyote basketball is on the rise as last year it posted one its best records since joining the Summit League.

Peterson is right in line with that coming off of one of his best seasons ranking 8th in points scored (549) and 21st in points per game (22.8) for the 2014-2015 season.

With the excitement of the new basketball arena, rising success, and promising new recruits I believe it's safe to say that the future is extremely bright for the University of South Dakota basketball program.
