Wolters named AP All-American
The honors continued to roll in for South Dakota State standout Nate Wolters on Monday, the latest being named Associated Press Third Team All-American, the highest honor earned by a Jackrabbit at the Division I level.
“We’re very proud of Nate and all of what he’s accomplished,” head coach Scott Nagy said. “When you consider all of the players in Division I basketball, to be one of the top 15 players speaks not only to his athletic ability and what he’s done for us, but also the kind of person his is and how hard he’s worked to make himself a better basketball player.”
A St. Cloud Tech alum, Wolters averaged 22.3 points, 5.6 rebounds and 5.8 assists per game in leading the Jackrabbits to the NCAA Tournament for the second straight season. Additionally, he scored an SDSU record, and 2012-13 Division I single-game high 53 points at Fort Wayne on Feb. 7.
Wolters currently ranks fourth nationally with 22.3 points per game, 21st nationally with 5.8 assists per game and 22nd nationally with a 2.51 assists to turnover ratio.

Points wins Houston Open
D.A. Points came back from a long rain delay and made four pars, the last one giving him a one-shot victory Sunday in the Houston Open in Humble, Texas, and a trip to the Masters.
With a putter he once borrowed from his mother and never returned, Points rolled in a putt from just outside 12 feet on the final hole to polish off a 6-under 66 and avoid a sudden-death playoff with Masters-bound Henrik Stenson and Billy Horschel.
It was quite a turnaround for Points, who arrived at Redstone Golf Club having not broken 70 in last nine rounds. But he stayed in the hunt after opening with a 64, and he kept his calm when he returned to the golf course Sunday after a rain delay of nearly three hours.
