SIOUX FALLS – Top-seeded South Dakota State, the defending Summit League Women’s Basketball Tournament champion, opened defense of their title with a workman-like 67-53 win over eighth-seeded Oakland in Saturday’s opening round of the 2013 tournament at the Sioux Falls Arena.

“It was a good first win to get the tournament going,” said SDSU head coach Aaron Johnston. “It’s been an unusual three weeks. We’ve played about three games in 21 days. Usually we have a flurry of games at the end. I think that had something to do with our sluggish beginning.

“Leah (Dietel) had a really nice game, broke things open in the second half. It was a good start for us; now we’re ready to move on.”
