SDSU's Nate Wolters Named Henson Finalist And POTW

SDSU's Nate Wolters Named Henson Finalist And POTW

The Summit League named South Dakota State point guard Nate Wolters its Player of the Week on Monday for a league-record seventh time, and tied the all-time league mark with 15 career honors.

“Nate had another great week of basketball and it would have been even better had he not gotten injured in the Murray State game,” head coach Scott Nagy said. “Once again he is very deserving of being named player of the week.”

Against CSU Bakersfield on Wednesday, Wolters finished one assist shy of a triple-double, scoring 32 points, grabbing 10 rebounds and dishing out nine assists. Facing Murray State in a nationally-televised BracketBusters game, he scored 18 points with six rebounds, five assists and two steals.

Wolters played 89 of his team’s 90 minutes in the two games, including all 50 in the double-overtime contest at Bakersfield. His weekly averages included 25 points, seven assists, six rebounds and 1.5 steals per game. Wolters became the first player on record (since 1990-91) to earn three consecutive Summit League Player of the Week awards.

CollegeInsider.com announced the 25 finalists for the 2013 Lou Henson Award on Monday, a list that includes South Dakota State point guard Nate Wolters.

“We’re so proud of Nate and his many accomplishments, and the nomination for the Lou Henson Award reminds us once again how special he is, and what he has meant to our program,” head coach Scott Nagy said. “This award holds even more significance for me, because the Nagy family learned so much from Coach Henson and his wife Mary. My dad played for coach and was his assistant for 18 years, and I had the opportunity to coach under him as a very young coach.  We could never repay him for what he has done for us.”

For the second straight year CollegeInsider.com teamed up with Point3 Basketball to promote the Lou Henson award “fan vote,” which constitutes 33 percent of the final vote. Look for voting details at a later date.

The Lou Henson Award is presented annually to the top Mid-Major player in Division I college basketball. The award is named in honor of Lou Henson who retired after a spectacular coaching career that lasted 41 years. When he left the game in 2005 he ranked sixth all-time in career Division I wins with 779. He is the winningest coach at both Illinois and New Mexico State, and one of only 12 coaches in the history of the game to take two schools to the Final Four.

The 2013 Award will be presented at the CollegeInsider.com awards banquet in Atlanta, site of the men's NCAA Basketball Championship.
