ELMHURST, Ill. – South Dakota's men's golf attire claimed The Summit League Uni Madness Championship by cruising to a final round victory. The Coyotes received 79.26 percent of the vote in their championship matchup against South Dakota State's men's basketball uniform, which received 20.74 percent.
South Dakota's path to the title included a quarterfinal victory over Fort Wayne's men's basketball uniform and semifinal win over Oral Roberts' track uniform.
Summit League Uni Madness was a bracketed competition to determine the league's "hottest" summer look. Each league member nominated four uniforms with the one receiving the highest vote in the school voting round advancing as that institution's representative in the final field of eight. Fans voted to advance a winner in each quarterfinal, semifinal and final round matchup.
