Coach Nagy Talks About Wolters' Future

Coach Nagy Talks About Wolters' Future
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

South Dakota State University basketball fans are blue with pride following the selection of Nate Wolters to the NBA. Selected in the second round of the draft, after two trades, Wolters landed with the Milwaukee Bucks.

For years, Nate Wolters gave South Dakota State University fans a lot to cheer about. And now they'll be able to watch his professional career develop. Wolters told his collegiate coach he was uncertain he'd be drafted. But his coach didn't have those fears.

“I knew that he was going to get drafted and I think he's going to be a very good NBA player. It certainly isn't my life, but we're excited for him,” SDSU Men's Basketball Coach Scott Nagy

Nagy says the work ethic that Wolters showcased while at SDSU is what propelled him to this success. He says it will continue to pay off.

"Because he's going to put the work in, he's going to be a great teammate and I really believe he's going to be more than a backup in the NBA. I think as some point he's going to get a great opportunity and he's going to prove he can be a very, very good NBA player," Nagy said.

As for SDSU's program, Nagy says players coming and going is part of college level sports. But he also knows starting next season without number three will be quite different.

"Nate is the best player who has ever played here. So, it is a big hole to fill but we also return four seniors who have won a lot of basketball games, so they know what to do. It will be different but I also think they're excited about the challenge," Nagy said.

And at the same time, Wolters will face new challenges and successes in his new professional role.
