Lyndsay Harris, a stalwart member of the St. Stephen's Eagles in the 2017 and 2018 state tournaments, has extended her college basketball career another two years in signing a national letter of intent to play for the Briar Cliff University Warriors next fall.
Harris completed two years at Little Priest Tribal College in Winnebago, Nebraska.
She started 11 games last season, shooting 41 percent from the 3-point line while averaging 9.8 points per game.
Harris played primarily post for the Eagles in high school, but she has developed her overall game and now is a threat with the long ball.
Little Priest finished 4-26 overall last season and was 3-13 in the very competitive Iowa Community College Athletic Conference.
Briar Cliff University is an NAIA school located in Sioux City, Iowa. Enrollment is about 1,000.
The Briar Cliff Charges compete in the Great Plains Athletic Conference with Concordia Lutheran, Hastings College, Jamestown College and Doane College.
The Chargers were 8-14 in Great Plains competition and 11-19 overall.
Harris is majoring in criminal justice and would like to be a criminal investigator after graduating from college.
"I'd like to eventually work for the BIA," Harris said.
She is receiving both athletic and academic scholarships at Briar Cliff.
