MBB: Coyotes to open season at Wisconsin


VERMILLION, S.D. (GoYotes.com) — The South Dakota men’s basketball team kicks off the 2022-23 season with a road contest in Madison, Wisconsin against the defending Big Ten Champion Wisconsin Badgers. This will be the first game for Eric Peterson, a native of Wisconsin, as head coach of the Coyotes on November 7.

South Dakota and Wisconsin have met seven times in series history dating back to the 1956-57 season. That was the Coyotes’ lone win in the series after defeating the Badgers 58-56 in overtime. The most recent meeting took place in the Kohl Center in early December of 2010. USD kept it close by being down five at the half, but Wisconsin pulled away in the second half for a 15-point victory over the Coyotes.

Time for this game will be released at a later date along with the rest of the non-conference schedule for South Dakota.
