The University of South Dakota Women’s Basketball team plays in the Women’s National Invitation Tournament championship game this weekend. The Coyotes defeated Oregon, 88 to 54, at the Dakota Dome Wednesday night. U-S-D took an early 9-1 lead, led by 14 points at halftime, and had a 36-point advantage after three quarters. A big part of the U-S-D win was 71 percent three-point shooting, as the Coyotes hit 15 of 21 long-range shots. Oregon coach Kelly Graves summed up the Ducks’ performance on his post-game radio show on the Oregon Sports Network.
