Bookmark and Share

The honors continued to roll in for South Dakota State standout Nate Wolters on Monday, the latest being Associated Press Third Team All-American, the highest honor earned by a Jackrabbit at the Division I level.

 

“We’re very proud of Nate and all of what he’s accomplished,” head coach Scott Nagy said. “When you consider all of the players in Division I basketball, to be one of the top 15 players speaks not only to his athletic ability and what he’s done for us, but also the kind of person his is and how hard he’s worked to make himself a better basketball player.”

 

A St. Cloud, Minn., native, Wolters averaged 22.3 points, 5.6 rebounds and 5.8 assists per game in leading the Jackrabbits to the NCAA Tournament for the second straight season. Additionally, he scored an SDSU record, and 2012-13 Division I single-game high 53 points at Fort Wayne on Feb. 7.

 

Wolters currently ranks fourth nationally with 22.3 points per game, 21st nationally with 5.8 assists per game and 22nd nationally with a 2.51 assists to turnover ratio.

 

Wolters leaves SDSU with career records in points with 2,363, assists with 669 and free throws made with 648. Wolters, along with fellow senior Tony Fiegen, both played an SDSU record 128 games in their careers, with the team compiling an 85-46 record in their four years at SDSU.
