Al McGuire Center
MU Rallies, but Falls to South Dakota 69-65
Trailing 63-62 with 34 seconds remaining in the game, the Marquette University women's basketball team's (2-4) freshman guard Kenisha Bell drove down the right side of the lane and put up a layup while drawing a foul to put the Golden Eagles ahead 65-63. However, South Dakota's (4-2) Tia Hemiller drove the length of the court to answer. Coyote's guard Raeshel Contreras then stole the ensuing inbound pass and was fouled on her shot attempt and connected on both to give USD a 67-65 lead on their way to a 69-65 win Sunday afternoon at the Al McGuire Center.

The Coyotes dropped a narrow 84-81 overtime decision at Kansas State on Thursday evening. South Dakots connected on 17 three-point shots and Nicole Seekamp was two rebounds shy of a triple-double as she tallied 20 points, 10 assists, and eight rebounds. Caitlin Duffy posted a team-high 21 points, shooting 7-for-13 beyond the arc. She added six rebounds and five assists.

This is just the second all-time meeting between the programs. South Dakota pulled out a 69-65 victory in Milwaukee last season just after Thanksgiving.

Following the trip to South Dakota, Marquette will head down to Florida to compete in the FIU Thanksgiving Tournament. The Golden Eagles open against host, FIU on Friday, Nov. 27.
