BROOKINGS, S.D. (AP) South Dakota State guard Nate Wolters has always been a quiet Midwestern kid who leads by example.
But it's hard to avoid the spotlight scoring 53 points in a game.
Wolters' high school coach Randy Jordan says there's no player he'd rather see with the ball in the final seconds when the Jackrabbits take on fourth-seed Michigan in the first round of the NCAA tournament Thursday.
Jordan says when St. Cloud Tech needed a bucket, Wolters seemed to always have the ball and make the right decision.
Wolters began garnering national attention last year when the Jackrabbits made their first trip to the NCAA tournament. The 6-foot-4 senior became a sensation again in February when he scored a school-record 53 points against IPFW.
