Browning's Dulci SkunkCap is now the newest member of the Montana State University-Northern women's basketball program. SkunkCap earned Class A All-State honors this past season.

The Montana State University-Northern women's basketball program has always been loaded with 406 talent. And Northern head coach Chris Mouat added another Montana standout Thursday.

Mouat announced the signing of Browning's Dulci SkunkCap to join the program in the fall. SkunkCap is a 5-9 guard from Browning High School, where she recently completed a highly successful career.

As a senior, SkunkCap earned All-State and First Team All-Conference honors as well as being named the Class A Northwest Most Valuable Player. She was also a First Team All-Conference selection as a junior, and a Second Team All-Conference pick as a sophomore. The three-year varsity player was also a First-Team All-Tournament selection at the 2018 Divisional Tournament in Butte, where she helped the Lady Indians to a runner-up finish.

SkunkCap helped her teams earn Class A State tournament bids in 2018, 2019 and 2020. She was the team’s “Miss Defense” in 2018, a two-year team captain, and led the team in assists and steals as both a junior and senior. As a senior, she averaged 12 points, 4.8 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 2.7 steals per game. Her 3.4 assists were good for fourth in all of Class A girls basketball. She ranked in the top 10 in six statistical categories in the Northwest A and was in the top five in four categories in 2019-2020. For her career, she scored over 500 total points, and her teams were a combined 28-2 in Northwest A competition.

“Dulci is a great addition to our program” Mouat said. “She has good length, sees the floor very well and has a good all-around game. She can really get to the rim and has the ability to be very explosive. I like the fact that she can play a number of positions on the floor and love her competitiveness. She comes from a basketball family and a strong program in Browning.”

A two-sport standout, SkunkCap was also a two-time All-Conference Honorable Mention selection as a middle and outside hitter in volleyball. A two-time team captain and team Most Valuable Player, she led Browning in blocks and kills for two straight seasons.

“Dulci does a great job, both on the court and off. She is an excellent student and a strong addition for us. I think she has a ton of potential and room for growth at the college level. We are looking forward to having her in a Skylight uniform and being a part of the Northern family,” Mouat added.

Dulci is the daughter of Gayle and Kitty SkunkCap. She carries a 3.9 grade point average and plans on majoring in health promotion or biology, and hopes to later attend physical therapy school.
