SIOUX FALLS, SD – Sioux Falls looks to capture their first conference victory in their first-ever NSIC games held at the Stewart Center. The Cougars host Concordia University-St. Paul Friday, December 14 and Minnesota State University, Mankato Saturday December 15. Neither team is a familiar opponent, as combined USF has faced the two teams 12 times in the last 40 seasons. Following a 37-year hiatus, USF and Concordia squared off for a non-conference contest last fall, which resulted in a 20-point Golden Bear win.

USF Notes

• USF head coach Chris Johnson was a graduate assistant at Minnesota State from 1999-2001.
