Beginning tonight through Friday, the NCAA Division II Men’s and Women’s Basketball Elite Eight, Final Four, and Championships are being held at the Pentagon here in Sioux Falls. The best 8 Men’s and Women’s Division teams are coming from around the nation to crown National Champions. One of the competing teams is our own Northern State University Men’s team from Aberdeen. Pretty exciting, huh? Let’s get out there and cheer on the Wolves.
Here is a link to today’s article in the Sioux Falls Argus Leader and the schedule of play in case you want to go out the Pentagon tonight and the rest of the week:

Go Wolves! The underdog team!
Hey this is one thing all candidates, staff and South Dakotans should agree on
FYI: The post is mostly satire. There isn’t a thing in the Argus about the NATIONAL DIVISION II WOMEN’S ELITE EIGHT and the NATIONAL DIVISION II MEN’S ELITE EIGHT.
But Northern Men are playing. They are a solid team but at this stage they all are.
Tonight the Women’s team from Ashland is playing. If they score 73 points tonight, they will become the highest scoring Women’s basketball team over a season in history, passing the Division I perennial powerhouse UCONN from 2014.
Thats impressive…but you have to remember, it doesn’t consist of USF, Augie, SDSU, or USD so they aren’t going to care.
But they want all the tournaments in Sioux Falls….
it might appear to you from the outside. But the reality is different if you watch close. Did you know that the night Augie and USF women won their quarterfinal Norther Sun Conference Tournament games, the sports page initially said Augie was playing Moorehead (not USF) in the semifinals? Moorehead jumped out to a big lead and they just assumed USF would lose. They didn’t even stick around to write a story about USF.
