Vikings at a Glance: The Viking Women will tip off versus former DAC member and now NCAA Division II member South Dakota School of Mines and Technology at 2:00 pm on Saturday.
The Vikings are coming off a much needed win versus #13 ranked Jamestown College after dropping two games in a row to two top 25 schools in Jamestown College and #19 Mayville State University. In the win versus Jimmies on Wednesday, the Vikings limited Jamestown College to just 48 points, their lowest point total of the season.
After falling out of the top 25 National Poll this week for the first time all season, the Vikings look to climb back into the rankings by completing a 2-0 week with a win versus the visiting Hard Rockers. Valley City State knocked off SD School of Mines on their home floor in January by a 59-47 score.
The Opponent: Barb Felderman, the head coach for South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, is in her 31st season with the Hard Rockers. During her tenure, Coach Felderman has accumulated 434 wins.
This season, Felderman's team has a 14-9 overall record and has won five of six games since Valley City State defeated SD Mines on their home floor in early January with all five wins coming versus A.I.I. opponents of the Vikings.
