Deb Remmerde makes the transition from the playing court to the sidelines as she begins her coaching career as a graduate assistant for the South Dakota State University women's basketball team.

A native of Rock Valley, Iowa, Remmerde put together a record-setting playing career at Northwestern College in Orange City, Iowa. A four-time first-team All-American and 2008 NAIA Division II Player of the Year, she finished her career as the division’s all-time scoring leader with 3,854 points — an average of 28.8 points per game. She established a single-season scoring record with 1,122 points during the 2007-08 season and also set all-time NAIA records for career (95.77 percent) and single-season (97.24 percent) free throw percentage. Her 133 consecutive made free throws are the most in competition at any level — high school to professional, men’s or women’s).

After completing her collegiate playing career in 2008, Remmerde earned a tryout with the WNBA’s Houston Comets and briefly played professionally in Germany. She graduated from Northwestern with a degree in sport management and is pursuing her master's degree in sport pedagogy at SDSU.
