The Dakota State University women's basketball team starts their second-half of the DAC's conference schedule on Wednesday night. The Trojans will try to snap their three-game losing streak as they host their DAC's traveling partner, Mayville State. Tip-off is slated for 5:30 p.m. at the DSU Fieldhouse.
