SMSU Women's Basketball Program Signs Milbank Standout

Posted: Updated:

MARSHALL, Minn. - Southwest Minnesota State University head women's basketball coach Allison Kruger announced on Thursday that Kendra Snaza, a native of Milbank, S.D., has signed a letter of intent to continue her academic and basketball career at SMSU. Wednesday marked the first day of the early signing period for NCAA college basketball programs.


"We are excited about the addition of Kendra to the SMSU program," Kruger said. "She is a special player that we knew would become a Mustang from the first visit she had to campus."

Snaza, a 5-foot-8 forward, is currently a senior at Milbank High School and is a three-year letterwinner for the Bulldogs racking up 593 career points and 361 career rebounds. She is a two-time all-conference honoree and was named Milbank's Rookie of the Year as a freshman and MVP her sophomore and junior seasons.

Off the hardwood, Snaza is a member of National Honor Society and is an honor roll student.

"Kendra is another versatile player to add to our roster, she is a strong player that can do damage in the paint, while also having the ability to step out and be a threat from the 3-point line," Kruger said. "She is a very competitive player that loves to be in the gym.  Her passion for SMSU and becoming a Mustang is rare to find and we can't wait to welcome her to our family."

Snaza is also a four-year letterwinner in volleyball and was named all-state as a junior.

Kenra's dad, Dan Snaza, was a four-year letterwinner for the Mustang football team from 1984-87.

Southwest Minnesota State University, located in Marshall, Minn., is a member of NCAA Division II and the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference.
