Some fall sports are beginning to wrap up:
The SDSU women’s basketball team returns to the floor tonight for the first time since a lopsided opening loss at BYU. This one won’t be easy, either.
Although it fell to Drake in its opener, Creighton gained mention in some preseason top-25 polls and is 4-0 in the series against the Jacks, including two relatively recent wins in Brookings.
Tipoff is set for 7:05 p.m. I’ll be there with live coverage.
The SDSU soccer team has lost four in a row at the Summit League tournament after a 2-1 decision against rival North Dakota State on Friday in Fort Wayne, Ind. The Jacks had the better seed in three of those matches.
Still, they finished the season with 11 wins, an improvement of five over last season and their fifth double-digit effort in the last six seasons.
It’s shaping up to be another unforgettable week for former SDSU star point guard Nate Wolters of the Milwaukee Bucks. There are four games in five days. That includes a trip to Miami on Tuesday to visit LeBron James and Co., a Friday contest against fellow ex-Summit League star George Hill and the Pacers and a Saturday home tilt against Mr. Kevin Durant and the Thunder.
The SDSU cross country teams head to the Division I Midwest Regional on Friday at Iowa State. Coach Rod DeHaven was especially pleased with the second-place showing in the Summit League meet by the women - a group with no seniors and just two juniors in its top 12. The Jacks also hope to benefit from the location of the next two conference championships - Fargo in 2014 and Brookings in 2015.
