Hastings happy to host Sioux Falls in semifinals

The Hastings College men's basketball team finds itself in an unlikely position after Thursday's quarterfinal games in the Great Plains Athletic Conference tournament. The Broncos entered the tournament as the No. 5 seed, but after three of the top four seeds were upset on Thursday — including Hastings' 89-70 road win against fourth-seeded Northwestern — the Broncos now find themselves hosting ninth-seeded Sioux Falls in the semifinals today at 3 p.m.
