The game between USD and Western Illinois was every bit as evenly matched as expected. Down 54-49 the Coyotes opened the second half on fire eventually taking the lead. From there it was back and forth between the Coyotes and Leathernecks.
It wasn’t until late in the second half when Western Illinois began to pull away, but the Lady Yotes battled back. Raeshel Contreras hit the last second shot and the Yotes win 96-94. The Coyotes advance to the final four and will play SDSU on Monday at noon.
