RAPID CITY --- South Dakota School of Mines men’s head basketball coach Jason Henry is pleased to announce the signing of the program’s first recruit for the 2007-08 season. The Hardrockers welcome Scott May to the program.
May is 6-foot-2-inch guard from Smoky Hill High School in Aurora, Colo. As a senior he averaged 13 points, 4.1 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game. He also helped his team, the Smoky Hill Buffalo to a 22-4 record during the 2006-07 campaign and earned the League title from the Centennial League in 5A division basketball. The Buffalo also made an Elite Eight appearance this past season as well.
“Scott May comes from a very good basketball program. He really brings more of those intangibles to the floor – the type of things that can’t be coached. Either a kid knows them or he doesn’t,” Henry said.
May received All State honorable mention, earned first team honors for the Centennial League and was also named to the All City (Aurora) team at the conclusion of his senior season.
“He’s a hard nose kid from one of the top teams in Colorado 5A basketball,” Henry added.
During his junior season, May averaged 9.6 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game. He was the MVP of the Heritage/Thunderridge Tip-off Tournament, was named to the second team in the Centennial League and was All City honorable mention. Also during his junior year, May helped his team finish with a 21-6 overall record and make a first ever trip to the Final Four in post season play.
May plans to pursue a degree in Industrial Engineering while attending South Dakota School of Mines.
The Hardrocker basketball team is coming off an outstanding season. After SDM finished second in Dakota Athletic Conference play, they made a strong run in the postseason against some tough competition and finished with an appearance in the DAC tournament title game. The Hardrockers ended the year with a 9-5 conference record.
