BEMIDJI -- The Bemidji State women’s basketball team has added NJCAA All-American center Megan Swedberg to its program, head coach Chelsea DeVille announced Wednesday. The transfer will join the Beavers after playing two seasons at Northland Community and Technical College.

Swedberg, a 6-foot, 1-inch center from Ogema, started all 30 games for the Pioneers last season while averaging a team-best 19.6 points and 11.6 rebounds per game. Her rebound total ranked 20th among all NJCAA Division III qualifiers and her scoring total ranked 22nd.
