The women have made themselves a dynasty; and the South Dakota State University men aren't very far behind.
They sent the North Dakota State University Bison packing Tuesday night with a 73 to 67 win. They led the majority of the game and their head coach says last year’s success played a big role in Tuesday night’s win.
”I’m happy for our kids. We took everybody’s best shot all year. We were picked to win it. We did win the league and then we came to the tournament and won it. [I’m] really proud of our kids and how they handled it,” SDSU Head Coach Scott Nagy said.
This is the men’s second straight Summit League title, but that's not the only award they're walking away with. Point guard Nate Wolters, who had 27 points, took the tournament MVP.
“It was a great win for us. It was out goal to get back to the tournament hopefully win a couple games. Being able to accomplish that was an amazing experience,” Wolters said.
The men will now head to the NCAA D-1 big dance.
They'll find out who and where they're playing on Sunday.
