BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) — Augustana College guard Riley Nordgaard has transferred into the Montana State women's basketball program.

Nordgaard averaged 12.9 points and 7.6 rebounds per game as a sophomore at the Sioux Falls, South Dakota school. She will have to sit out a season under NCAA Division I transfer rules and will have two seasons remaining.

MSU coach Tricia Binford says Nordgaard is a tough, aggressive athlete with a team-first mentality.

Nordgaard averaged 24 points, 10.5 rebounds and 5.9 steals per game as a senior at Canby High in Canby, Minnesota.
