What started out so promising for South Dakota in the 2014 Summit League season is quickly turning into a nightmare.  The Coyotes, once 3-0 in conference play, have now lost six straight as they head to IUPUI Saturday afternoon.

The latest loss for USD came at Fort Wayne Thursday night, and it what's becoming a typical Coyote game, South Dakota dug themselves a big hole early, mounted a big comeback late, but ran out of time against a team they beat by 14 the first time around.

Saturday the Coyotes will be facing an excited IUPUI team fresh off its first Summit League win since December of 2012; a 10-point victory against Denver Thursday night.

One of the Jags key players is still sideline with injury, Ian Chiles has missed the last six games, and USD coach Joey James knows what he means to this IUPUI team:

Tipoff is 1:00pm CST Thursday in Indianapolis.
