USD Men Get First Win of the Season in Dakota Showcase
After back-to-back losses in the Dakota Showcase at the Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls, the University of South Dakota men’s basketball team is in the plus column with a win against their biggest rival.
The Coyotes opened the Dakota Showcase with losses to both North Dakota teams but in Saturday's finale, Stanley Umude would lead South Dakota to a 91-78 win over South Dakota State University.
Umude would add 41 points to lead USD over the Jackrabbits for a total of 85 in the three-game outing. Saturday night's game would tie Umude with Iowa's Luka Garza for most points scored by a Division I player this season.
In the loss, SDSU ends its win streak of four games.
Next up for the Coyotes a home contest at the Sanford Coyote Sports Center on Wednesday against Drake. This will be the home opener for USD. Tip time is 7:00 PM.
