In a tournament upset, the University of South Dakota Coyotes beat the South Dakota State University Jacks in Monday's women's semifinal action.
The Yotes led the entire game and ended with a final score of 72-58. Nicole Seekamp and Polly Harrington led USD with 19 and 18 points, respectively. Megan Waytashek was the top scorer for the Jacks with 18 points.
USD had a great start to the game, as they were up 9-2 within the first few minutes. At halftime, the Yotes led 37-25, with USD shooting 41 percent from the field and SDSU struggling with only 29 percent.
During the second half, the Yotes kept their lead. Overall they shot 36 percent from the field. The Jacks shot 31 percent from the field.
SDSU topped USD both times this season, 88-69 and 99-88. But the third time was a charm for the Yotes.
The Coyotes will advance to Tuesday's Summit League Championship game at 1 p.m. and play either IUPUI or Denver. The winner of that game will move onto the NCAA tournament.
