South Dakota State’s Gabby Boever Gets Extra Year with Jackrabbits
The South Dakota State women's basketball team is getting their point guard back for another season.
Gabby Boever has been granted another year of eligibility from the NCAA. She missed all of 2014-15 with a leg injury suffered just prior to the start of the season.
The Worthington, Minnesota native led the Jackrabbits’ assists and steals in both the 2012-13 and 2013-14 seasons. She was the Summit League leader in steals two years ago.
In a SDSU press release, head coach Aaron Johnston said:
This is great news for Gabby and her family. It will be fun to see her back on the court for another season with her teammates.
She’s dealt with some tough injuries during her career and I know she will appreciate this opportunity to compete again.
This will actually be Boever's sixth season in Brookings. She was forced to redshirt her freshman year after suffering another leg injury. Boever is currently three steals from SDSU’s all-time Top Ten, 16 steals shy of the Summit League’s Top 20 all-time.
