The Coyote women jumped out to a lead early against Northern Iowa, but the Panthers pesky defense towards the end helped UNI close the gap. South Dakota was able to hold off the charge and defeat UNI 85-77. The Coyotes are now 5-0 all-time against Northern Iowa when playing inside DakotaDome. USD now leads the series 6-5 overall, which means the Coyotes are just 1-5 in Cedar Falls. Can we just schedule this opponent in the Dome only?
Oh, by the way, the team shot 60 percent in the game, which isn’t bad.
Tia Hemiller scored a career-high 20 points in the win and dominated at the end of the game to hold off UNI. She has taken over in the final minute in back-to-back games to help South Dakota to the win. Coyotes are now 5-2 on the season and will host Cal State Fullerton tomorrow.
After the game Jay Elsen and I sat down for a video blog to talk about the Coyote win. I always appreciate the chance to be on with Jay, who also hosts Coyote Corner on Tuesday nights at 8pm CT on Midco Sports Net.
I had the chance to be on Coyote Corner for the second time this season with Jay Elsen on Midco Sports. I always enjoy being on the show and any chance to talk about sports. This week was a little different with a tough season right now for the Coyotes, but we made it through and Jay always does a fine job as the host. Also in the show Jay will preview the matchup with FCS No. 1 North Dakota State and Alex Heinert has a feature on a couple of players who have bounced back from injury.
Big thanks to Jay for asking me to be on the show again, Alex for his work as the producer of the show and Toby who is behind the scenes making sure everything is on time.
We leave in a selfie world so here is a pre-tv selfie!
In case you missed it, this week I had a chance to make an appearance on Coyote Corner. The show is a product of Midco Sports Network, based is Sioux Falls. Jay Elsen hosts the show every week and he takes a look back at the previous game for the University of South Dakota. This week I joined him for “Saturday Storylines” and also a look at the Missouri Valley Football Conference. I’ve always enjoyed the chance to be on a show at Midco. This is my second appearance on Coyote Corner and I also had the chance to sit in on Benchwarmers.
I invite you to check out the show. Not only this week because I am on it, but each and every week. Jay is a great host who knows his stuff and Alex Heinert does a fantastic job producing the show. Anyway, here is this week’s episode. Check it out!
