  • South Dakota women’s basketball will take a 10-day foreign tour to Greece this August. The Coyotes’ Greece excursion, Aug. 3-13, will be full of history, culture, great food and breathtaking views. South Dakota women’s basketball will visit Athens, Crete and Santorini. Between the exploration and team building, the Coyotes will also practice and play three games in Greece. One of the benefits of the foreign tour is that the trip grants USD a total of 10 additional practice dates in Vermillion prior to departure to prepare. South Dakota’s last foreign tour came in 2016 when the program visited Australia. Fans can follow along with South Dakota’s trip to Greece on GoYotes.com, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, and Facebook.
