SIOUX FALLS, S.D. - Here’s everything you need to know about the CU Mortgage Direct Dakota Showcase, running Dec. 10-12 at the Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls, South Dakota:
All four participating teams – North Dakota, North Dakota State, South Dakota and South Dakota State – are members of the Summit League and are scheduled to play each other twice this season during conference play. These games will go down as non-conference games, as allowed by the NCAA due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
All members of each team’s traveling party will adhere to their in-season COVID-19 testing protocols. All members will enter the building using a separate entrance and will only have access to the lower level of the facility. All members will remain in a controlled environment throughout their stay. If any member of the traveling party tests positive for COVID-19, the team will be removed from the event.
Midco Sports Network will air and stream all six games live. The television broadcasts will be on MidcoSN channel 2. For streaming details visit MidcoSN.com/streaming
This is the Sanford Pentagon debut for NDSU and UND. But USD and SDSU have been frequent visitors. The Coyotes are 3-4 in the facility, while the Jackrabbits are 3-6. SDSU played three games previously this season as part of the Bad Boy Mowers Crosssover Classic.
NDSU and SDSU have combined to win the last nine Summit League tournament championships.
