Dexter Sienko, SGS Class of 2014, completed a stellar four-year basketball career at Denver's Regis University this year, taking the Regis Rangers to the 2nd Round of the Division II Men's Basketball Tournament.  The 6'6" senior earned All-South Central Region 2nd Team honors from the Division II Conference Commissioner's Association.  He also was named Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Year after leading that league with 64 blocked shots.  A 1st Team All-Academic winner for three years, Dexter had a conference-best 58.1 shooting percentage and averaged 14.7 points per game.

An article in the Spokesman-Review noted, "This season the Rangers went 27-6, the second most wins in school history, finished second in the RMAC and won the conference tournament before 22nd-ranked Regis was eliminated in the second round of the South Central Regional in four overtimes.  Sienko had 26 points and team-highs of 12 rebounds and eight assists."  Congratulations, Dexter!
