Talented Point Guards Face Off In SDSU/Michigan Game

Talented Point Guards Face Off In SDSU/Michigan Game
AUBURN HILLS, MI -

One more night of sleep for the SDSU men and then... showtime. The Jacks tip off the NCAA tournament tomorrow evening against a tough Michigan crew.

Nationally, a lot of basketball fans will be watching Nate Wolters take on possibly the country's best point guard Trey Burke. But both will tell you, the best "team" will win.

It became the main topic during both team's press conferences today, how will Nate Wolters and Trey Burke match up.

"He's a great player, probably the best point guard in the country. I try to learn from him. He's really good in pick and roll and he's a good shooter. He's going to be tough to guard," Wolters said.

Like Wolters said, they will be going head to head with each player guarding the other. With similar statistics and styles it should be fun to watch, but publicly at this point, neither star is spending a lot of time discussing it.

"A lot has been made of it. That's something I've tried not to focus on as far as a one on one matchup. Obviously I know he's a really good player. I think 30-percent of their offense runs through him. It's my job to try and slow him down and make things tough," Burke said.

While both can score a lot of points, the difference could be who has the most assists.

"While some people may be looking at a matchup of those two, both of them get their teammates open," Michigan head coach John Beilein said.

"He gets people open, he creates for himself. I can't put words to describe how great of a player Nate is," SDSU Jr. Forward Jordan Dykstra said.

There's no doubt Nate will need to be great tomorrow if the 13-seeded Jacks hope to advance against the 4th seeded Wolverines, but according to his coach, the brighter the spotlight the better Wolters plays.

"He spends so much time playing basketball; it just comes natural to him. In the biggest moments, in the four years I've coached him, the biggest moments is when he shows up. I don't expect any different tomorrow," SDSU head coach Scott Nagy said.

His teammates are ready to chip in too; today Jordan Dykstra says he's had a fire inside ever since his performance last year at the tournament.
