Fought back to get close, but fell by 4. If I had to put money on one of our teams making it to the second round...I would not have been betting on the men's team.

I hear a lot of people talk about how big of an advantage the SD teams have playing our tournament in Sioux Falls. While that might be true, I’m pretty sure this year @SDCoyotesWBB and @GoJacksWBB would meet in the finals even if I hosted the tourney in my driveway. #TheyGood
