South Dakota Arena To Host 8-Team Thanksgiving Week Tourney


Four teams that finished last season in the Associated Press Top 25 make up half the field for a three-day tournament Thanksgiving week in South Dakota’s largest city.

The event will be held Nov. 25-27 at the Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls.

The field includes Dayton, Creighton, Ohio State and West Virginia — all of which were in the Top 25. The eight teams have combined for 70 Sweet Sixteen appearances and 20 trips to the Final Four.

Members of team traveling parties will be tested regularly for COVID-19 once they arrive in Sioux Falls, and all will remain in a controlled environment.
