Fans Weigh In On Women's Basketball Rivalry

Fans Weigh In On Women's Basketball Rivalry

There's another chapter in the University of South Dakota and South Dakota State University rivalry as the women's basketball teams square off with a berth at the Summit League Championship game on the line on Monday.

In this state on game day, your clothes are either red or blue. Those colors are shining a little brighter as the Jackrabbits and Coyotes rivalry hits the big stage.

After a heroic shot by Raeshel Contreras lifting her team over Western Illinois, the matchup is set. USD and SDSU will renew their rivalry with an opportunity to advance to the Summit League Championship.

Jackrabbit fan Keith Jensen hasn't missed a Summit League Tournament game since it moved to Sioux Falls. He knows these games have a little more motivation, especially with everything on the line.

"It'll be the usual rivalry game with a lot of emotion on both sides I suspect," Jensen said.

Alison Sundall has courtside seats at the Dakota Dome to watch her Yotes. She remembers last season, when SDSU beat USD to take home the Summit League title. That game was decided by just three points and she's excepting a similar result on Monday.

"My expectation is, it's going to be a close game. I'm hoping to see USD of course come out on top, but I think we will definitely see a well-played game," Sundall said.

SDSU beat their in-state rivals twice this year. Jensen is confident his squad will win again under the bright lights of the tournament.

"The old saying is, it's hard to beat three times in a season, but I'm feeling pretty good about our women's team this year," Jensen said.

But Sundall thinks that the third time is the charm for USD.

"I think USD might be out for a little bit of revenge here," Sundall said.

What the fans think means nothing, as the newest chapter will be written on the court when these two teams tip-off.
