Sanford Pentagon hosting major college basketball programs this week


SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — The Sanford Pentagon will be in the national spotlight a few times this week as it hosts major Division I college basketball.

The Wisconsin men take on 20th-ranked St. Mary’s on Tuesday night. This Saturday, Minnesota will face Oklahoma. Matt Ditmanson with the Sanford Sports Complex says his staff has been rolling out the red carpet for the teams. The court will also look a bit different. That’s because there’s a new three-point line this year for men’s Division I.

“As you can see on the court, we’ve added a line. Men’s division I will be playing from the new line. Divisions two and three will remain on their previous line,” Ditmanson said.

In addition to the two Division one college basketball matchups this Tuesday and Saturday, the Sioux Falls Skyforce will be hosting its home opener at the Pentagon this Sunday.
