SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (GoJacks.com) — South Dakota State University forward Myah Selland earned her fifth Summit League Player of the Week award of the season Monday after helping lead the nationally ranked Jackrabbits to a weekend sweep over rival South Dakota.

A redshirt junior from Letcher, Selland averaged 21.5 points, 3.5 rebounds and 5 assists in the two victories. She scored a team-best 17 points and tied her career-high with nine assists in the Feb. 5 opener, then tallied another game-high with 26 points as SDSU rallied late the next night.

For the week, Selland shot 46.4 percent from the field (13-of-28) and 83.3 percent (15-of-18) from the free throw line.

Also honored as the Summit League Female Athlete of the Month in both December and January, Selland is averaging a Summit League-best 19.2 points per game. She has scored at least 15 points in every game for the Jackrabbits, who lead the league with an 8-0 mark and are 15-2 overall.

Selland shared this week’s honor with Western Illinois guard Grace Gilmore. Selland’s five player of the week awards match Macy Miller’s total during the 2017-18 season for the most by a Jackrabbit player and rank tied for third all-time in a season for Summit League women’s basketball.

Currently ranked 23rd in the Associated Press poll, SDSU travels to Oral Roberts for games Saturday and Sunday. Tipoff is set for 2 p.m. each day at the Mabee Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
