Ahead of Thursday night's big SDSU men's basketball game, a number of watch parties have been lined up for fans across the region.
Of course, fans are watching all over the community of Brookings. In addition, Thirsty's in Rapid City will host a watch party. In Mitchell, you can find fans at Blarney's Sports Bar and Grill. And here in Sioux Falls, kRav'N bar and restaurant on the Sioux Falls south side is hosting a party as well.
If you can't be in Auburn Hills, Michigan, kRav'N is the place to be.
Many are starting to head home from their work day and as they do, many fans will be making their way into kRav'N to catch the 6:15 p.m. game.
A group of SDSU alumni are throwing an official Sioux Falls Jackrabbit watch party starting at 6:00 p.m. just before tip off.
We met a group of SDSU fans taking their seats a few hours early and ready for, what is sure to be, an exciting tip off.
"It's what you dreamed, hopefully in your lifetime you have this. And It's happened 2 years in a row," long-time SDSU fan Charles Boese said. "It expands the exposure since they've gone to Division 1. It puts us on the map, so to speak."
"I hope that we're going on our way to a victory," Boese said.
