Wolters back in national spotlight

Posted: Wednesday, Mar 20th, 2013




BROOKINGS (AP) By his own admission, Nate Wolters wasn't much of a threat last season from the 3-point line.

The South Dakota State guard has sure turned things around. Wolters, whose evening routine includes taking hundreds of shots in an empty Frost Arena, said he worked hard this year to improve his outside shooting.

"I've shot a pretty good percentage this year, and I think that's made the defense honest," he said. "I think I've become a better passer, as well."

Wolters has always been a quiet Midwestern kid who leads by example, but the spotlight was on him earlier this season when he scored 53 points in a game, tops in Division I. And now he and the Jackrabbits are back on college basketball's biggest stage of all, facing No. 4 seed Michigan in the first round of the NCAA tournament on Thursday.
