Sam Leep

Manhattan Christian's Sam Leep averaged 19.9 points per game as a senior.

BELGRADE — Manhattan Christian senior guard Sam Leep has committed to play basketball for Dordt College in Sioux City, Iowa, the Belgrade News reported Friday.

Leep averaged 19.9 points per game and made 14 of his 89 3-pointers in a game against West Yellowstone, breaking the all-class state record by one. Leep, who stands 5-foot-10, scored 44 points in that game.

Dordt is a private Christian school in the NAIA's Great Plains Athletic Conference.

“They got a good coach right now,” Leep told News sports editor Dan Chesnet. “I watched one of their practices and it seems like everybody kind of gets along and works hard. It should be good.”

Leep, who helped the Eagles to a state championship a year ago, was chosen all-state for Class C.
