Summit League Preview: Coyotes at IUPUI, Jackrabbits at Oral Roberts
Both the South Dakota women and South Dakota State men are looking to cap a perfect week four of the Summit League schedule as they play away from home Saturday night.
The Coyotes have a conference-best four game win steak and play at IUPUI after Thursday's 73-72 win at Fort Wayne, USD's first ever win on the Mastodons home floor.
Against the Jaguars Saturday, the Coyotes will be facing a team that's trying to replace last season's defensive stalwarts DeAirra Goss and Dee Dee Bellamy.
USD head coach Amy Williams knows IUPUI's focus has changed:
Tipoff is 6:00 PM Saturday in Indianapolis.
The Jackrabbits are the hottest team in the conference right now, winners of five straight after Wednesday's 82-53 win at home against Fort Wayne.
SDSU is one the road Saturday, making their first trip to Oral Roberts since the Golden Eagles returned to the Summit League after a three-year absence.
ORU has the third best scorer in the conference in Obi Emegano (17 points per game) and has one of the best home court advantages in the Summit League.
Head coach Scott Nagy on the Golden Eagles:
Tipoff is 7:00 PM Saturday in Tulsa.
