Yankton's Matthew Mors is one of the best high school basketball players to ever play in the state of South Dakota and now he is coming home.

As a 3x South Dakota Gatorade Player of the Year, Mors was heavily recruited by many programs in the region but he ultimately landed at the University of Wisconsin.

During his freshman season in 2021-2022, Mors redshirted for the Badgers and decided after the season was over to enter the transfer portal.

Mors announced on his Twitter account on Friday that he would be transferring to South Dakota State University.

Mors will join a team that is fresh off a undefeated regular season in the Summit League, a Summit League Tournament Championship and a trip to the NCAA Tournament.

SDSU head coach Eric Henderson has to be overjoyed that he is able to land Mors out of the transfer portal and add his talent to a loaded team.

Since Mors redshirted this past season at Wisconsin, he will still have four years of eligibility remaining at SDSU.

Life on a Cattle Ranch in Western South Dakota

Life is different out in the country. One look at the photo from Robin Bickel and you quickly realize that a workday is quite different as well, after all, she lives out west in South Dakota Cattle Country.

Robin Bickel took time to tell KIKN Country a little bit about her life out west and life as a woman, working outdoors with animals and nature in God's Country. Bickel lives and works on a cattle ranch operated by herself, her father, Jack, and his brother Keith. How far out in the country is she? How does 50 miles west of Mobridge, South Dakota sound? Yep, mountain time out there.

Life is so different in Sioux Falls, South Dakota compared to what our friends on the farm and ranches deal with. It's a half-mile to the grocery store for our family. For Robin, it's 17 miles. However, it's a quick step out her door and she's right in the middle of where a lot of the groceries come from.
