BEMIDJI, Minn. – The Bemidji State University women's basketball coach Mike Curfman announced today that Haley Zerr (Shakopee, Minn.) has committed to the Beavers’ basketball program and will enroll at the University next fall.
All signees are contingent upon admission to BSU and compliance with NCAA rules, including certification by the NCAA Eligibility Center.
“With a young team overall, we were looking for a specific player, capable of scoring in a number of ways and we are excited to add Haley to our program,” said Curfman.
Haley Zerr, a 5’9” guard, is a four-year letter winner in basketball and a member of the Shakopee High School girl’s basketball team that won the 2013-14 Suburban South Conference Championship.
During the 2013-14 season, Zerr averaged 14.4 points per game for a total of 404 points in 28 games played. Zerr shot 49 percent (94-193) from the field and was 35 percent (55-155) from three-point range. From the charity line, she was second on the team shooting 75 percent (51-68). She was also named to the all-conference team her junior season.
Zerr is the daughter of Jeff and Kim Zerr of Shakopee, Minn. Kim played at BSU from 1983 to 1987 and Haley follows her sister Hanna who currently plays at Bemidji State. She intends to major in radiology at BSU in the fall.
“Haley can shoot the three, but is much more versatile than just a three point shooter, she drives well and can get to the free throw line,” stated Curfman. “With a strong junior year and AAU season I am excited to watch her continually improve her game during her senior year.”
The Beavers kick start their regular season play Nov. 14-15 at the Radisson Hotel Roseville Classic in St. Paul, Minn. The Beavers will take on Fort Hays State University Friday and Pittsburg State University Saturday at 5 p.m. and 3 p.m., respectively.
Nestled in Northern Minnesota’s wooded region and located on the shore of Lake Bemidji, Bemidji State University sponsors 15 varsity athletic programs with NCAA Division I men’s and women’s hockey membership in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association, while its 13 NCAA Division II programs hold membership in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC).
