We're just over 24 hours from tip off between the Minnesota Timberwovles and the Milwaukee Bucks.
While it's always exciting for the NBA club to travel down to Sioux Falls from the Twin Cities, this year there's quite the story line with it. Nate Wolters, an NBA second round draft pick, who was eventually traded to the Milwaukee Bucks will make his first ever professional basketball appearance in the Mount Rushmore State.
Wolter's was a stud for the South Dakota State Jackrabbits, where he helped the team make it to the NCAA tournament, twice. Wolters and the Bucks have landed in Sioux Falls and the former Jackrabbit says it's great to be back in South Dakota.
“It's a special for me. I had some of the best years in my life here, obviously, and it's nice to come back. It just worked out this way. So, I'm really looking forward to tomorrow night and it will be a once in lifetime experience. I don't know if I'll ever be back here playing basketball again,” said Wolters.
“I mean it's sold out. I think a lot of people are excited about it. I've gotten a lot of texts. So, it'll be fun,” added Wolters.
The Bucks and the T-Wolves tip off Thursday night at 7, in the brand new Sanford Pentagon.
