Billings Central basketball standout Mya Hansen is headed to Indiana to play basketball at Butler University. 

Hansen confirmed the news to SWX on Thursday afternoon. 

The decision comes after Hansen recently decommitted from the University of Montana, citing the recent changes in the program and an interest in exploring her opportunities. 

Now, she'll play in the Big East with the Butler Bulldogs in Indianapolis against some of the best in the country. 

"I'm definitely excited. What I love about basketball is the competition aspect of it so it's great knowing I'll play against the best of the best. But for colleges, it wasn't too much of 'Where can I get to the highest level?' it was 'What best fits me no matter what level? Where can I become a better player and person?' and get a good academic aspect of it too," said Hansen. 

The Billings Central standout said she felt like she fit at Butler right away during her visit, and she's excited for the chance to play home games at the infamous Hinkle Fieldhouse. 

Hansen was named MaxPreps player of the year after her most recent Junior season. She averaged 17.4 points, 5 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game.
