The rivalry continued on Saturday as South Dakota State and South Dakota played another highly contested game on the hardcourt.

This time it was the SDSU women that got the better of USD defeating the Coyotes 75-65 in front of a great environment inside Frost Arena.

Scoring came at a premium in the first half and USD led 29-27 heading to the break.

It was SDSU's offense that really picked up in the second half, with both Paige Meyer and Tori Nelson scoring a team high 16 points each for the game.

The win for the Jackrabbits evens the series on the year after SDSU fell to USD earlier in the season down in Vermillion.

Hopefully, the state of South Dakota will be treated to a trilogy this year with these two teams potentially facing off once again at the 2022 Summit League Tournament.

The 2022 Summit League Tournament will take place at the Denny Sanford Premier Center in Sioux Falls, SD from March 5-8.

Life on a Cattle Ranch in Western South Dakota

Life is different out in the country. One look at the photo from Robin Bickel and you quickly realize that a workday is quite different as well, after all, she lives out west in South Dakota Cattle Country.

Robin Bickel took time to tell KIKN Country a little bit about her life out west and life as a woman, working outdoors with animals and nature in God's Country. Bickel lives and works on a cattle ranch operated by herself, her father, Jack, and his brother Keith. How far out in the country is she? How does 50 miles west of Mobridge, South Dakota sound? Yep, mountain time out there.

Life is so different in Sioux Falls, South Dakota compared to what our friends on the farm and ranches deal with. It's a half-mile to the grocery store for our family. For Robin, it's 17 miles. However, it's a quick step out her door and she's right in the middle of where a lot of the groceries come from.
