RAPID CITY --- After a fifth-consecutive winning season and a perfect
home stand last year, the South Dakota School of Mines men's basketball
team continues to add strength and depth to its roster for the 2013-14
campaign, most recently announcing Eric Seaberry as the newest
Hardrocker for the 2013-14 season.
Seaberry is a 6-foot point guard from Cleveland, Ohio who played
hoops for Charles F. Brush High School where he helped the team to a
district runners-up showing in 2012 and averaged 10 points, 10.1 assists
and 2.3 steals per game.
"Eric can really push the ball in transition and he is an explosive
point guard that sees the floor very well," said Hardrocker men's
basketball head coach Jason Henry. "He is a great leader with a super
personality and has an excellent basketball IQ. We are extremely excited
to have Eric as part of our Hardrocker family."
With the loss of starting SD Mines point guard Denis Dobkowski-Rylko,
Henry feels Seaberry will add needed depth to the Hardrocker point
"Eric has faced some top-notch competition over the past few years
and will be counted on to compete at a high level for the Hardrockers,"
While attending SD Mines, Seaberry plans to pursue a degree in Industrial Engineering.
South Dakota School of Mines specializes in science, engineering,
technology, and mathematics (STEM) education, preparing students with a
rigorous and highly-valued curriculum. SD Mines graduates enjoy an
average starting salary of $62,696, with 98 percent employed in their
field of study or enrolled in graduate school. A low student-to-faculty
ratio (14:1) and affordable attendance fees ($15,300 in-state and
$17,245 out-of-state) make SD Mines an attractive return on investment.
