Circling back to the Summit League it will be SDSU (5-1) traveling to Tulsa, Oklahoma to play Oral Roberts (7-3). The Coyotes (9-1) head to Grand Forks to play the Fighting Hawks (5-7).
The Lady Jacks who are perfect in Summit League play (8-0) and ranked nationally at number 23, gave fans a sweep last weekend when USD came to Frost Arena. South Dakota State women are also in Tulsa for a pair this weekend.
The Coyotes (6-2) are at North Dakota (2-9). They will be led by forwarding Myah Selland who earned her fifth Summit League Player of the Week award of the season. Selland is averaging a Summit League-best 19.2 points per game.
