USD, SDSU Fans React To Coyote Victory

USD, SDSU Fans React To Coyote Victory

It is a victory that not many saw coming, but now one South Dakota fan base is on their way to the championship game while the other is heading home.

"I think we came out a little sluggish and just weren't able to get things going. We got out-rebounded and out-hustled on defense and our shots just didn't fall for us," SDSU fan Ryan Drake said.

"I wouldn't say they played flat, I say that our team was just on today and they were making everything from the first six points and it just didn't stop after that," USD fan Michelle Van Maanen said.

USD's upset victory already has some fans switching gears to the next game for the Jackrabbit men.

"I am disappointed, but I'm happy. They had a good year, so Go Jacks! Got another one tonight," SDSU fan Rick Even said.

"I was thinking about the upset because the Coyotes have been really playing good lately and I was kind of thinking it might happen and it did," USD fan Larry Vellek said.

While dealing with the sting of defeat, SDSU fans are remaining positive about the season the women put together.

"It's a little tougher to swallow, but it's one of those deals where at least we'll get a home game for the WNIT.  There's still a little bit of season left. The season isn't completely over," Drake said.

Even though USD did come out on top in this match-up, the fan base from both schools is friendly to one another, continuing the storied rivalry.

"I was sitting with some Jackrabbit fans and we had a good time giving each other a little bad time back and forth before the game, and I think they're happy for us, and they'll be happy for us if we win tomorrow just like our guys are out but we'll be happy if their guys win tonight and go into tomorrow," Van Maanen said.

Fans say that the respect between the two schools is what keeps this rivalry so strong and exciting.
