Holleman Receives NSIC Academic Award

By NSIC/Kyle Gylsen - Marshall

Bree Holleman of Hancock is a recipient of the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference Myles Brand All-Academic with Distinction Award.

Holleman is currently a senior majoring in Elementary Education at Southwest Minnesota State University. She is a 5’8” guard on the Mustangs’ Women’s Basketball team.

According to the SMWU Athletic Department, Holleman played in 72 games in her career with 46 starts. Bree ranks eighth all-time at SMSU in 3-point field goals made (112), ranks seventh all-time in 3-point field goals attempted (312) and netted her 100th career 3-point field goal on Jan. 5, 2013, versus Upper Iowa.

As a junior in 2012-13, Holleman was named Academic All-NSIC. She appeared in 20 games, making 20 starts before missing the last nine games with an injury. Bree finished the season making 34 3-point field goals, averaged 10.6 points and 3.9 rebounds per game and scored a career-high 26 points versus Missouri Southern on (11/10/12).

During her sophomore season, Holleman was named Academic All-NSIC. She appeared in all 26 games, starting 25, and finished second on the team averaging 10 points and 3.8 rebounds per game. Bree also led the team with 47 3-point field goals, the 10th highest in single-season history, and dished out a team-high 54 assists.

Holleman also appeared in all 26 games during her freshman campaign in 2010-11, averaging 4.8 points per game.

Bree is the daughter of Mark and Jodi Holleman.

NSIC Commissioner Butch Raymond is proud to announce the fifth annual NSIC awards. The honor, named for the late NCAA President Dr. Myles Brand, is bestowed to senior NSIC student-athletes who have a cumulative grade point average of 3.75 or higher, are exhausting their eligibility and are on track to graduate. Each student-athlete will be recognized by the NSIC with a certificate of achievement and a wrist watch. Furthermore, each institution is highly encouraged to have these student-athletes be publicly recognized at a home athletic event. A total of 96 student-athletes from the NSIC's 16 institutions and two affiliated members will receive the award in its fifth year. "Dr. Brand, in his leadership role with the NCAA, always gave strong support to Division II and our dual emphasis on academics and athletics. The NSIC is proud to recognize and honor this elite group of student-athletes in Dr. Brand's honor," said Raymond. Dr. Myles N. Brand, visionary leader, educator and reformer, served as the President of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) from 2003-2009. He passed away in September 2009 at the age of 67 after a battle with pancreatic cancer. Brand presided over passage of the most comprehensive academic reform package for intercollegiate athletics in recent history - a package that refocused the attention of student-athletes, coaches and administrators on the education of student-athletes. Brand also changed the national dialog on college sports to emphasize the educational value of athletics participation and the integration of intercollegiate athletics with the academic mission of higher education. His impact on Division II ran deep by implementing an identity campaign and a strategic-positioning platform tied to specific divisional attributes. He challenged Division II to continue its game-environment and community-engagement focus, and improve academic success rates.

The NSIC is a 16-team, 18-sport, NCAA Division II Conference with teams located in Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota and South Dakota. 2014 NSIC Myles Brand All-Academic with Distinction Award Honorees
