Coyote women will host two games this weekend Tenth-ranked South Dakota (16-4, 1-3) ended a long road trip with a win last Saturday and now returns home to host Minnesota State (6-11, 0-4 NCC) and St. Cloud State (12-5, 2-2 NCC) this weekend.
After a 15-1 nonconference season, the Coyotes have run into a buzzsaw � road play in the NCC. USD salvaged a win on the road trip when freshman guard Jenni Flynn hit a three-pointer with five seconds to play to lift USD past No. 11 North Dakota State at the Bison Sports Arena.
USD, which halted NDSU's 14-game winning streak, now has won two of the last three games in Fargo. Prior to that win, USD had dropped three straight games, falling 89-66, to No. 3 North Dakota at the Ralph Engelstad Arena in Grand Forks last Friday. Earlier USD lost to No. 7 South Dakota State, 99-83, at Frost Arena on Jan. 9 and to Augustana, 74-64, at the Elmen Center on Jan. 10.
USD, which is 7-0 at home this season, will host MSU at 6 p.m. on Friday before facing St. Cloud State on Saturday at 6 p.m.
MSU and St. Cloud State each started the league season with four home games. MSU lost all four games while SCSU was 2-2, including a win over No. 7 South Dakota State, 77-67.
