RAPID CITY --- The 2007-08 Division I & II Men's Basketball Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athletes have been announced with over 135 student-athletes recognized with this prestigious honor.
South Dakota School of Mines junior Brandon Smith made the list. Smith is a Mechanical Engineering major from Amenia, N.D. He has been with the Hardrockers for four years, redshirting as a freshman and was a core component of the team this past season. Smith also set a season field goal percentage record, making good on 107 of 172 for 62 percent.
“Brandon Smith has been the ideal student-athlete that we look for at the South Dakota School of Mines,” said Hardrocker men’s basketball coach Jason Henry. “On the court he was an exceptional starter for our team and off the court he obviously has a high academic standard.”
