You gotta love the fall season as college sports once again takes the spotlight. Athletes have invested so much time and sweat, and training for the next level of their sporting careers. From the football field to the volleyball court. Cross country and soccer. Then, while our part of the country sees bitter cold and snow move in we shift to the hardwood.

The 2023-2024 men's and women's Summit League basketball schedules have been released and South Dakota and South Dakota State will start their League slate the week after Christmas.

Once again this season, the Coyotes and Jackrabbits will follow a 16-game, home-and-home mirrored schedule.

The opening four #SummitWBB matchups include Omaha at Denver, Kansas City at Oral Roberts, North Dakota at St. Thomas, and North Dakota State at South Dakota. Reigning regular season and tournament champion South Dakota State will open its title defense at North Dakota on New Year’s Eve.
