SIOUX FALLS — South Dakota's biggest rivalry is back on the basketball court today.

The Summit League's mirror scheduling means both men's and women's teams have the same opponents every week but in separate locations.

Earlier this season, the SDSU men defeated USD in Vermillion. The Jackrabbit women thrashed the Coyotes at Frost Arena in Brookings.

Everybody starts at zero today.

The women's game starts 1 p.m. at the Sanford Coyote Sports Center. You can watch it on ESPN+.


The men's game is broadcast on ESPN beginning at 6 p.m. You can follow SFL sportswriter Matt Zimmer's Twitter updates from Brookings @MattJZimmer .
