Sen. John Thune Helps Send Off USD Women's Basketball Team to Tourney

The University of South Dakota women's basketball team got a very important visitor to their tournament send-off today.

U.S. Senator John Thune, a USD alumnus, was on hand to wish the Lady Yotes well as they head to Ames for their opening game in the NCAA women's basketball tournament.

The Lady Yotes are a 15-seed after winning the Summit League tournament last week, and will take on 2-seed Stanford Saturday at 5:30 p.m.

You'll be able to watch the game on ESPN 2.
