South Dakota Basketball Takes Two in Canada
WINNIPEG, Canada— The University of South Dakota men’s basketball team is in Canada for exhibition games.
USD guard Juevol Myles averaged 24 points per game in leading the Coyotes to a pair of wins during the team’s trip to Canada during the weekend. South Dakota topped University of Winnipeg 91-76 Saturday and beat University of Manitoba 109-73 Sunday.
“It was a really good trip because we got to see our new players in action,” said USD head coach Dave Boots. "Defensively, we were better in the second game. Offensively, I think we have some players who are going to do a good job. Overall, it was a positive experience for us.”
Myles backed up an 18-point performance against Winnipeg with a 30-point outburst against Manitoba. A native of Ontario, Canada, Myles will play his senior season at USD after spending two years at Tallahassee Community College and one season at Kansas State.
“They each had their moments,” said Boots. “They had some tough stretches, but there were a lot more positives than negatives. We will make some adjustments as we progress into the fall practice and try some new things.”
