Selland will be a Jackrabbit

SCW’s junior superstar verbally commits to State

One of South Dakota’s premier girls basketball players made the decision that will shape the next era of her life last Thursday, when she made her verbal commitment to play ball at South Dakota State University.
Selland had narrowed it down to an in-state school, but the success of SDSU’s program, her relationship with their coaches and the academic programs offered at State ultimately led Selland to Brookings. As an added bonus, Selland’s decision to become a Jackrabbit will make it easier for her family, friends and fans, of which she has many, to follow her collegiate career.
The women’s Jackrabbit program has seen a lot of success recently, winning seven Summit League championships in the past eight years. The team, which gets a number of its key players from in-state high schools, missed the Sweet 16 this past season by one point, as they fell to Stanford, 66-65.
The 6-foot-2 junior says the fact that SDSU’s success was achieved largely with area talent also played into her decision.
Selland, who is strong under the basket, yet a great ball-handler, plays a sort of point guard/forward position for the Blackhawks. With her multidimensional abilities, her coaches believe she will be a great fit for the Jacks, wherever they decide to play her.
Selland, who calls Letcher her home, can officially sign with the Jackrabbits on Nov. 9. She is the daughter of Brett and Kelly Selland.
