Lincoln, Ne
Where: Sanford Coyotes Sports Center - Vermillion, South Dakota
When: Wednesday Nov. 28 at 7 p.m.
Projected Starting Lineup: Bridget Carleton, Meredith Burkhall, Alexa Middleton, Madison Wise, Ashley Joens
Radio: Cyclone Radio Network/Learfield
Talent: Chris Williams & Lyndsey Fennelly
TV: ESPN+ (Mediacom 22, 822 HD/22SD)

We watched the ISU men play in Sanford Pentagon a couple of years ago - the likely 2,000+ crowd will make a lot of noise in that facility. A ranked ISU is a big draw for them and not out of their reach. They're also rather proud that South Dakota leads the nation in fewest turnovers per game with 10.2.

I'm not sure what ESPN+ is and whether the trial is worth while, but it seems we might get video for free on the South Dakota site. Maybe someone can checkout the options.

Notes:
  • South Dakota was RPI 63 last season.
  • They return their top two overall players, Ciara Duffy and Allison Arens (last season #1 and 2 in scoring and rebounding and #2 and 3 in assists) as well as last season's top assister, Madison McKeever.
  • They force a lot of turnovers (many on steals -- 77 in 6 games this year) and generally take care of the ball pretty well themselves. They forced 22 ISU turnovers last year, although ISU forced them into an uncharacteristic 17 turnovers.
  • They aren't particularly tall -- Duffy, a 6-1 guard, is the only starter over 6-0. Their tallest reserve is 6-2.
  • Duffy was conference FOY two years ago and 1st team all-conference last season.
  • There are 14 players who have played so far this season, and all 14 have attempted at least one three. All 8 who have averaged at least 11 minutes per game have made a three.

USD's arena holds 6K. The Pentagon in Sioux Falls holds half that.

Jeez if they hadn't bombed a couple threes neither team would be in double figures after the 1st. Woof!
