Coyotes ready to play in Rocket Mortgage Fort Myers Tip-Off

The South Dakota men’s basketball team is scheduled to participate in the 2022 Rocket Mortgage Fort Myers Tip-Off in Fort Myers, Florida. Tournament dates are scheduled for Nov. 22 and 23 from Suncoast Credit Union Arena on the campus of Florida SouthWestern State College.

The Coyotes will play in the Palms Division of the Rocket Mortgage Fort Myers Tip-Off in a four-team tournament. Other schools in the Palms Division consist of Northern Illinois, Sam Houston, and Long Island, with the Beach Division comprising Georgia Tech, Marquette, Mississippi State, and Utah. While there are no crossover games in the tournament, each team in the Palms Division will play on one of the Beach Division teams before the eight programs heading to Fort Myers. These confrontations will be announced at a later date.

The Fort Myers Tip-Off has been an annual two-day college basketball tournament during Thanksgiving week since 2018. The 2022 tournament is the second with the Beach Division and Palms Division. Last year’s inaugural Palms Division field included Yale, Milwaukee, Bowling Green and eventual Palms Division champion Southern Utah. Last season’s Beach Division was made up of Ohio State, Seton Hall, California and Florida. Florida then beat Ohio State on a buzzer-beating three-pointer to claim the Beach Division crown.

Matches and game times for the Rocket Mortgage Fort Myers Tip-Off will be announced in the coming weeks.
