Division 1 doubleheader brings economic boost to Rapid City

Posted:

The University of South Dakota men's and women's basketball teams will play in Rapid City Saturday Dec. 7. The USD men's team will play the University of Wyoming while the USD women's team will take on School of Mines.
 
Brian Maliske, General Manager of the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center, said the event will cost between $10 to $20 a person and they're expecting up to 4,000 people.

On average, a one-day visit to Rapid City for someone living in the state will cost $47. While an out-of-state visitor spends $103 a day.

"We're hoping to see a lot of those people staying overnight with us here in Rapid City," said Maliske. "Hoping they are going to come early, spend a little money at one of our retail shops, maybe go out to a restaurant, then stay overnight in one of our fine hotels. So we believe there will be quite a great economic impact."

This is the first time the University of South Dakota and the University of Wyoming have played at the Civic Center. All of the teams have a strong alumni following in the area.
