Current Records: South Dakota 1-0; Drake 1-0

What to Know

The South Dakota Coyotes have quite the challenge ahead of them as they're expected to be blown off the court. They will take on the Drake Bulldogs at 3 p.m. ET Sunday at Knapp Center. The Coyotes lost both of their matches to Drake last season on scores of 53-69 and 57-75, so they're hoping to turn the tables this season.

Even if it wasn't a dominant performance, South Dakota beat the Air Force Falcons 59-53 this past Thursday. Kruz Perrott-Hunt (14 points) and Hunter Goodrick (12 points) were the top scorers for South Dakota.

Meanwhile, Drake took their game against the Coe College Kohawks last week by a conclusive 87-61 score.

Their wins lifted both teams to an identical 1-0. We'll see which team can carry over their success and which team inevitably falls when South Dakota and the Bulldogs clash.
