Sanborn Central/Woonsocket senior Myah Selland was named South Dakota's girls basketball Gatorade Player of the Year, it was announced Monday morning.

Selland, of Letcher, over the weekend helped her team to a runner-up finish at the Class B state girls basketball tournament. She is a South Dakota State University commit.

A 6-foot-1 guard, Selland averaged 19.6 points, 7.7 rebounds and 4.6 assists per game this year. She's been named to the first-team all-state list twice and scored 2,132 points in her high school career.

"Myah Selland is a difficult matchup for opposing teams because she can post up, hit the perimeter shot and is often leading our fast break," said Sanborn Central/Woonsocket head coach Tim McCain in a press release. "Her overall strength is her willingness to make others around her better. She is a team player in every sense of the word."
