The Northern Sun as well as the Summit League Men's and Women's College Basketball tournaments are rapidly approaching.

The NSIC will once again call the Sanford Pentagon home this season for their Men's and Women's Tournament, while the Summit League will once again be housed at the Denny Sanford Premier Center.

It should be a pair of very exciting tournaments for the respective conferences, with top-tier DII and DI hoops coming very soon to Sioux Falls.

35 Movies That Take Place in South Dakota

When it comes to South Dakota and Hollywood, we've seen our fair share of films that have used our state as the backdrop for a number of productions over the years. They may not have always filmed here, but movie folk love to set stories here.

We're all familiar with the blockbusters like 1990's Dances With Wolves, 1959's North By Northwest, and more recently, 2007's National Treasure: Book of Secrets. But our state's life on the big screen goes back nearly 100 years.

According to IMDb, it all started with Courtin' Wildcats, a 1929 film which, like so many of the 29 films on this list, is a Western set in the time before South Dakota became a state in 1889.
