South Dakota State’s Skyler Flatten Gets Sixth Year of Eligibility
The 2017-18 season will not be Skyler Flatten's last in a South Dakota State uniform. The Clark native has been granted a sixth year of eligibility by the NCAA, and will return for the 2018-19 season.
Flatten missed all of 2015-16 due to injury, has appeared in 78 games for the Jackrabbits, averaging five points and two rebounds a game.
This season, Flatten has started 16 of the Jackrabbits' 20 games, averaging seven and three rebounds a game. His 52 percent success rate from behind the three-point arc leads the Summit League.
In a SDSU press release, head coach TJ Otzelberger said:
We are absolutely thrilled that Skyler will have another year with us. He's fought through the adversity of multiple injuries that prevented him from competing as a Jackrabbit. Skyler is an extremely valuable member to our community, campus and team. I'm confident that his best is yet to come.
Flatten and the Jackrabbits return to action Saturday (January 13) afternoon when they host Denver in Brookings.
