Nate Wolters Ties Record With 15th Summit Honor
It's getting to be a Monday routine, South Dakota State's Nate Wolters picking up a Summit League Player of the Week honor.
This week's honor is the senior's record seventh Player of the Week award this season and tied the all-time league mark with 15 career honors. Wolters is also the first player to earn three consecutive Summit League Player of the Week awards.
Against Cal State Bakersfield, 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.
