BROOKINGS, S.D.—The five-time defending Summit League regular-season champion South Dakota State women’s basketball team announced today its 2014-15 Summit League schedule.
As part of the 16-game Summit League schedule, SDSU plays eight home-and-home contests with the return of Oral Roberts. Three of the eight home Summit League contests fall on a Saturday at Frost Arena, including against rivals North Dakota State (Jan. 31) and South Dakota (Feb. 21).
South Dakota State’s full schedule, which will include television broadcast information, is expected to be available in early September. Nonconference dates and times are also subject to change, and fans are encouraged to continue checking GoJacks.com for updates.
The Jackrabbits open their Summit League schedule hosting Denver Jan. 2 in the friendly confines of Frost Arena where they have won their last 10 consecutive league home games, dating to the 2012-13 season. The Jacks led The Summit League in home attendance and ranked in the top 100 in the nation last year, averaging more than 2,000 fans per game.
