USD Men's Basketball to Play Outdoors

In a stunning move to show his disappointment with recent road losses with the USD Men's Basketball team, Coach Dave Boots followed through with his threat to "teach the team a lesson" by making them play outside instead of the warm, friendly confines of the Dakota Dome.

The Coyotes, sure that coach would not follow through on his threat as long as they played better, beat North Dakota at home and then Minnesota Duluth on the road. It wasn't enough as the players found out via the "Next Week @ the U." email that they are to be relegated to the parking lot of the Dakota Dome for next Saturday's game with St. Cloud.

Even the oldest of fans can not remember the Coyotes playing outdoors, but they are excited about the plan. Immediately following the Women's game, fans are invited to fill the parking lot for the Men's game. Tip off will take place thirty minutes after the Women's game. Please come and cheer on your University of South Dakota Coyotes.
