Wolters, Fiegen Era Ends At SDSU



Bookmark and Share

The sensational careers of the two seniors on the SDSU basketball team came to an end Thursday night. Nate Wolters who of course had all the recognition nationwide this year just had a fabulous career, scoring points, handing out assists, grabbing rebounds, you name it -- up for all kinds of awards. And then the quiet guy, Tony Fiegen of Madison, who came in and really helped build the program, as did Nate, into a team that made the NCAA Tournament two years in a row.

"I'm more proud of Tony and Nate, not because of the basketball players they were and what they did on the basketball court, but because of the kind of men they are. They are fine, young men who are going to great when they leave here, and it's going to be hard to say good bye, but it happens every year, and then it's time to replace them with other good players," said SDSU head coach Scott Nagy.

"This career has gone better than I ever could have expected, successful wise, team wise, so yeah the program is on the rise, and they'll continue to get better," said SDSU senior Nate Wolters.

"It was a fun ride. I wouldn't change anything except maybe the ending of this year, maybe win a couple more games, but I'm just so blessed for the experience, and I wouldn't change anything. I appreciate everyone in this locker room and everything that coaching staff has done for me," said SDSU senior Tony Fiegen.

"I've been playing with Tony since 3rd grade, and I'm going to miss him. He's been such a huge part of my basketball career and he's one of my best friends, and I'm going to miss him," said SDSU junior Chad White.

"Those are two of the best guys I've ever been around, two of the best teammates, they'd do anything for you, bust their butts every night, and just to see them play their last game, it was running through my mind the whole night, and I didn't want to lose it for them, but couldn't get it done," said SDSU junior Jordan Dykstra.

So again, the career of these two seniors comes to a close, but they have written a brand new chapter in South Dakota State basketball history while they have been in Brookings, and Jackrabbit fans are sure going to miss them, but are sure glad they were part of that story.
