MBK: USD's Tecker To Forgo Senior Season

MBK: USD's Tecker To Forgo Senior Season
VERMILLION, SD -

University of South Dakota junior guard Steve Tecker will forgo his senior season of basketball to rehabilitate a hip injury that has nagged him throughout much of his playing career. Tecker has appeared in 88 games and made 20 starts for the Coyotes during the last three seasons. He will continue to be associated with USD basketball as he completes his degree.

“I am grateful for the opportunity I have had to play for Coach (Dave) Boots at USD for the past three years,” said Tecker. “Even though I would like to finish my career playing as a Coyote, I am looking to spending some time away from basketball to rest my hips.”

Tecker, a native of Brule, Wis., has undergone three hip surgeries to both sides of his torso in order to prolong his playing career. His first surgery followed his freshman year at Northwestern High School. His second came during his senior year. The third followed his freshman year at USD and at that time, doctors steered him away from further operations.

“We are very sorry to lose Steve for his senior year,” said USD head coach Dave Boots. “He has been a valuable member of our team for the past three years and we will miss him. The condition is just too painful for him to continue, but we look forward to having him involved in a non-playing role.”

Tecker appeared in 29 of 30 games and made eight starts while averaging five points and 3.5 rebounds per game last season. He shot 54 percent from the field, 77 percent from the line and had 39 assists and 22 steals. His career numbers include 495 points, 297 rebounds, 116 assists and 59 steals.
