Summit League Men’s Preview: Coyotes at Oral Robert
It's payback week for the South Dakota men, as the Coyotes continue a road trip against teams that beat them at their place last month.
The trip got off to a good start when USD notched another Summit League road win Thursday night, as an Eric Robertson tip-in with eight seconds left gave the Coyotes a 74-73 win in Omaha. South Dakota had trailed by 11 with nine minutes to play, but 12 points from Sekou Harris, all in the final 14 minutes, keyed the comeback.
Saturday in Tulsa, the Coyotes will be looking to reverse a one-point Oral Roberts win in the DakotaDome in January. USD had a ten-point halftime lead in that one but missed 11 free throws in the game, six in the second half to fall by one. Head coach Craig Smith on the rematch:
Tipoff is 7:00 PM in Tulsa Saturday.
