BROOKINGS — South Dakota State’s Myah Selland picked up one last award on her way out.

After helping lead the Jackrabbits to the second round of the NCAA Tournament, the former Sanborn Central/Woonsocket standout was named the Summit League women's Peak Performer of the Month for March.

In March, Selland averaged 16.2 points and 7.6 rebounds per game. She posted a 29-point effort — her second-highest scoring game of the year — against the University of Southern California in the Jacks’ first-round win in the NCAA Tournament.

The Letcher native also pulled down nine rebounds that game, as well as nine against Virginia Tech in the second round. The redshirt senior put up 17 points against the Hokies, who eventually made it to the Final Four.
