GREAT FALLS — Twin Bridges basketball standout Daniel Kruer inked with the University of Providence men’s basketball program, head coach Steve Keller announced on Friday.

“We are excited that Daniel has committed to our Argo basketball program,” said Keller.

Kruer, a 6-foot-5 forward from Sheridan, was a three-year letter-winner in basketball at Twin Bridges High School. He also competed in track and field and football as a Falcon. Kruer played for Josh Keller, Steve Keller’s son, at Twin Bridges. On the hardwood, he helped lead Twin Bridges to a 24-2 record this season, falling just shy of a state tournament berth. Twin Bridges fell to eventual Class C state runner-up Arlee in a Western C challenge game.

Kruer received all-conference recognition his junior season and all-conference and all-state honors for his outstanding senior season. He averaged a team-high 12.0 points and 6.9 rebounds per game as a senior for the Falcons. Kruer was also selected for the Billings Hotel Senior Classic following the 2018-19 season.

In the classroom, Kruer was named to the high honor roll and all-academic all four years of his high school career. He received the Wendy’s Heisman Award for academics, athletics, and community service. Kruer was a four-year member of the Business Professionals of America (BPA) at Twin Bridges as well. He will pursue a degree in business administration as an Argo.

“Daniel is a 6-5, athletic forward that can shoot well from the 3,” said Keller. “His versatility will be an asset for our program and we look forward to watching his development at the University of Providence.”
