The South Dakota State women's basketball team fought through some physical games to emerge as Summit League champions, but head coach Aaron Johnston says it will be "a whole `nother level of physical" in the NCAA tournament.
The Jackrabbits topped the South Dakota Coyotes 56-53 Tuesday to capture the conference title and its automatic bid to the big dance.
Johnston says he thinks South Dakota State's team is as complete as it's ever been and his players will be up for that type of game.
The Jackrabbits are making their fifth consecutive trip to the NCAA tournament. They'll find out who they will be playing in the first round on Monday.
