KCHA Sports Report (3/24)

Scoring the winning points at a basketball game

The Northern Iowa women will be on the road for the third round of the WNIT Thursday night when they visit South Dakota. The Panthers reached the round of 16 with wins over Nebraska and Drake.

That’s UNI coach Tanya Warren. The Panthers already own a win over South Dakota 64-43 in Cedar Falls back on November 17th.

Warren says the Coyotes will be difficult to guard.

Warren says the Panthers will use a variety of defenses in hopes of slowing them down.

UNI is 24-10. Tip off in Vermillion will be 7:00 p.m.

Six of the top eight men’s 400-meter hurdlers in the world will compete at next month’s Drake Relays. The field includes reigning Relays champion Bershawn Jackson, who is coming off a banner 2015 campaign.

That’s Drake Relays Director Brian Brown who says Jackson will be part of a star-studded field that includes 2008 Olympic silver medalist Kerron Clement.

Brown says it will be one of the top events at the meet.

The Drake Relays are April 26-30.
