South Dakota State grad Matt Dentlinger signs professional baseball contract in Switzerland

Former Jackrabbit and recent South Dakota State graduate Matt Dentlinger is set to begin his professional basketball career as the SDSU forward has signed a contract for the upcoming 2023-24 season with the Geneva Lions based out of Geneva, Switzerland. 
 
The Arcadia, Iowa, native completed a six-year span in Brookings this spring following a standout career in Yellow and Blue. Dentlinger was a two-time All-Summit League performer while claiming three Academic All-America awards. His senior campaign ended with averages of 12.3 points and 5.3 rebounds while starting in every game for the Jacks in 2022-23. 
 
Dentlinger ended his time at South Dakota state with the program’s most appearances by playing in 154 games. He finished tied for second in field goal percentage (60.8%), third in blocks (117) and 19th in points (1,300). 
 
The Geneva Lions play in Switzerland’s top division Swiss Basketball League. The Lions went 19-11 this past season and finished third in the regular season league table. They advanced to the league’s playoff semifinals where they fell to Fribourg Olympic Basketball who currently are up 2-1 in the best-of-five championship finals. Dentlinger will head to Switzerland prior to the start of the Lions’ 2023-24 season which opens at the beginning of October.
