SDSU’s Nate Wolters Still Getting National Attention
It's been quite a career for South Dakota State senior guard Nate Wolters - and it's not done yet.
Wolters has set the schol's all-time scoring record, played in the NCAA Tournament, graced the pages of Sports Illustrated, and now he's being mentioned among the nation's best in college basketball.
The Los Angeles Athletic Club announced The John R. Wooden Award Midseason Top 25 on Thursday, a list that includes Wolters among the 25 names. The list, Selected by the Wooden Award National Advisory Board, includes 25 student-athletes who, based on their performances in November, December, and the beginning of January, are the frontrunners for college basketball’s most prestigious honor.
Also this week, The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame announced the 20 watch list finalists for the 2013 Bob Cousy Collegiate Point Guard of the Year Award. The annual honor, named for Hall of Famer and former Boston Celtic Bob Cousy, recognizes the top point guards in men’s college basketball. An original list of 80 candidates was trimmed down by a nationally based committee to the list of 20.
Wolters and the Jacks return to action tomorrow afternoon against Ft. Wayne in Summit League action in Brookings. Tipoff is 4:00pm.
