MBK: Wolters Time At SDSU Winding Down

MBK: Wolters Time At SDSU Winding Down
BROOKINGS, SD -

With all the headline making performances from South Dakota State's Nate Wolters lately, it's a bit depressing to think his career in this state is almost at an end. With just two more home games this season, time is winding down to see the Jackrabbit senior who captured the country's attention this past week.

"He loves the game of basketball. His teammates love him because he doesn't crave the attention, even though he gets a lot of it. It's been fun to watch. He's been fun to coach," SDSU head coach Scott Nagy said.

With 'Senior Night' straight ahead in the final week of SDSU men's basketball in Brookings this season, plenty of Jackrabbit fans will be filling the seats to catch a last glimpse of their all-time scoring and assists leader in the yellow and blue.

"I've had a lot of fun times here at Frost Arena. Lot of fun games. We've won a lot so that's always good. It's gone by really fast and I'm going to enjoy this weekend," Wolters said.

This past week Wolters set school records after dropping 53 on Fort Wayne thanks in part to a record nine three-pointers. The performance helped lead the Jacks to a victory over the Mastodons and gave fellow senior Tony Fiegen some much needed rest.

"My job got easy honestly in the second half. Just setting a ball screen, rolling to the hoop and I didn't even have to rebound because I'd just catch the ball in the net every time and hand it to the ref," senior Tony Fiegen said.

"It was ridiculous to watch him play that night but he will still tell you it was a team victory, and it was," Nagy said.

That sentiment rings true when Wolters talks about which school record he appreciates the most.

"Probably the assists one means more to me because I'm a point guard. I don't want to be just known as a guy that can score. I want to be known as a complete player and assists is part of it," Wolters said.
