Bemidji State women's basketball: Two more commit for upcoming season

Bemidji State women's basketball head coach Mike Curfman announced the addition for two more student-athletes to his 2010-11 squad.

Melissa Borstner out of East Bethel and Jordyn Hover out of Barron, Wis. Signed with BSU during the late signing period that began Wednesday.

The signings make five for Curfman and the Beavers for next season. Borstner and Hover join Morgan Lee (G, Hayward, Wis.), Kate Warmack (C, East Grand Forks) and Ellie Wessling (G/F, Winsted), who signed during the early period last November.

All signees are contingent upon admission to BSU and compliance with NCAA rules, including certification by the NCAA Eligibility Center.

"Borstner and Hover are two talented players that have a great love and feel for the game," Curfman said. "Adding these two student-athletes with Lee, Warmack and Wessling, this class has the speed, size and talent to do some really great things for Bemidji State women's basketball."
