The Dickinson State women's basketball head coach Liz Lewis announced the signing of Brook Janz on April 24 via press release.

The 5-foot-11 guard hails from Sturgis, S.D., where she was a four-year letter winner at Sturgis Brown High School.

"Brook is coming off of a very successful high school career and will add a lot of versatility to our guard rotation," Lewis said. "She is incredibly long and athletic, and has the ability to score inside and out. Another thing that really stood out to me is her ability to rebound. Brook is a competitor, and I think she will fit very well into our style of play this next year."

Last season, Janz averaged 16 points and nine rebounds per game, shooting 46 percent from the field.

As a Scooper at SBHS, Janz earned Rookie of the Year honors her freshman year and was named Defensive MVP the following year. In her junior season, she was named Subway Athlete of the Week and Booster Club Athlete of the Week and she also earned Keeper of the Boards for two seasons.

She scooped up more accolades, earning Black Hills Pioneer Athlete of the Week as well as Offensive MVP twice.

Janz will study nursing while at DSU.
