MBK: Coyotes Announce 2012-13 Schedule

MBK: Coyotes Announce 2012-13 Schedule
VERMILLION, SD -

Heading into its second year in the Summit League, and a fully-fledged member of NCAA Division I, the University of South Dakota men’s basketball program unveiled its 2012-13 schedule Friday as announced by head coach Dave Boots.  The slate features 12 home games in the DakotaDome, a very challenging non-conference slate including road games at Gonzaga, Iowa and Kansas State, as well as a difficult Summit League slate.

“Our non-conference schedule will be very challenging and should prepare us well for the Summit League,” Boots said.  “We look forward to our second year in the league and our schedule is probably the toughest it has been throughout the whole transition process.  It should be very exciting to play with the likes of Iowa, Gonzaga and Kansas State, along with the always difficult Summit League schedule.”

The season opens at the Global Sports Showcase in Laramie, Wyo., where the Coyotes will face Southern University, along with host Wyoming and North Carolina Central Nov. 14-16.  From there, the Coyotes travel to Spokane, Wash., for a Nov. 18 matchup with perennial NCAA Tournament participant Gonzaga. 

Returning home, the Coyotes open the 2012-13 home slate with four games highlighted by the beginning of the Summit League schedule with Western Illinois and IUPUI visiting the DakotaDome on Nov. 29 and Dec. 1, respectively.  Prior to the conference opener, the Coyotes host Culver-Stockton College and Waldorf College on Nov. 23 and Nov. 24, respectively, following Thanksgiving.  

South Dakota then returns to the road for two games beginning Dec. 4 at Iowa and then at Ball State Dec. 8.  Ball State returns the favor a week later (Dec. 15) in the DakotaDome as the teams are scheduled to play back-to-back games.  The Coyotes then tangle with Morehead State on Dec. 19 in the final home game before the Christmas holiday.

The Coyotes play at Green Bay out of the Horizon League on Dec. 22, and then return to action at Summit League newcomer Nebraska-Omaha Dec. 29, followed by a non-conference game at Kansas State Dec. 31 to round out 2012.

Home games versus rivals North Dakota State and South Dakota State open 2013 on Jan. 3 and Jan. 5, respectively, followed by a home game versus UMKC Jan. 12 concluding five of the first six conference games in the DakotaDome.

From there, the schedule evens out as the Coyotes begin five of six away from home beginning with games at IPFW and Oakland (Jan. 17 and Jan. 19) followed by a home game versus Nebraska-Omaha (Jan. 24).

Trips to South Dakota State (Jan. 31), North Dakota State (Feb. 2) and UMKC (Feb. 9) follow, leading up to the final two home games of the season Feb. 14 versus Oakland and Feb. 16 versus IPFW.  The Coyotes then will play in the 11th Annual ESPN BracketBuster game (Feb. 23) on the road at an opponent to be determined in January.  Last season the Coyotes played host to Texas State in USD’s first BracketBuster game.

The Coyotes visit IUPUI (Feb. 28) and Western Illinois (Mar. 2) conclude the regular season.  South Dakota then will travel to its first Summit League Championship, Mar. 9-12 in Sioux Falls, S.D., with the winner receiving an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.

Game times will be announced at a later date.  For information on purchasing season tickets, please visit www.GoYotes.com or call the Coyote Ticket Office at (605) 677-5959.
