Posted: Updated:

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (June 9, 2011)- University of Sioux Falls head men's basketball coach Chris Johnson is pleased to announce the 2011-2012 basketball schedule. The slate has a mix of NCAA Division I, II and NAIA opponents and features 10 home games for the Cougars.

USF will tip the year at home with the only Great Plains Athletic Conference team on their schedule, Nebraska Wesleyan University. The Cougars hit the road next with four straight games against Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference schools, including the fifth annual Prairie Spirit Challenge against Augustana College (S.D.) on Nov. 16th at the Sioux Falls Arena. The NSIC will serve as USF's conference starting in the 2012-2013 academic year.

After games at Valley City State University and at home against Crown College, the Cougars will travel to Laramie, Wyo. to play the University of Wyoming on Friday, Dec. 16th. UW is a NCAA Division I institution that competes in the Mountain West Conference.

USF will return home to play six straight tilts at the Stewart Center, followed by two games on the road at Minot State University in North Dakota. A trip west will start the month of February with games at Dakota State University, South Dakota School of Mines and Black Hills State University. MSU will then pay a visit to the Stewart Center, playing two games, giving the MSU-USF series a total of four matchups this year.

USF will wrap-up the 2011-2012 campaign in Las Vegas, Nev. at the NCAA Division II Independent Tournament. The tournament will be held Feb. 24-27 and features eight teams from across the country.
