The Summit League means Sioux Falls wins

Sioux Falls, SD (KELO-AM) The Summit League Championship Tournament that starts this weekend will be a big boost to the Sioux Falls economy, but the longer the non-South Dakota teams stay in it, the bigger the boost.

Terri Schmidt with the Convention and Visitors Bureau says all the out-of-staters will stay longer the longer their teams keep winning and that means more nights in local hotel rooms, more meals, and so forth.

So the math works like this: the longer the South Dakota squads stay in, the bigger the crowds should be, but the longer the out-of-state squads stay in, the more of those out-of-state dollars flow into the local economy. The bottom line is that Sioux Falls wins no matter what happens.
