SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — The Omaha women’s basketball team continued to enjoy its stay in Sioux Falls.

Claire Killian had a game-high 22 points, while Josie Filer added eight points and nine rebounds.
Seeking its first Summit League championship for women’s basketball, Omaha will take on the University of South Dakota in the championship game at 1 p.m. Tuesday.
