’Rabbits guard hits 53

 

Nate Wolters scored a school-record 53 points and broke another mark with nine 3-pointers as the South Dakota State Jackrabbits defeated IPFW 80-74 Thursday in Fort Wayne, Ind. “They were sagging off of me and my shot felt pretty good tonight,” Wolters said. “I was able to knock a couple down and just got into a little bit of a rhythm.” The 53-point performance is believed to be the highest in a Division I game since North Dakota State’s Ben Woodside scored 60 against Stephen F. Austin in 2008. Jack Taylor of Division III Grinnell scored 138 points in a game earlier this season to set the all-division record. – Associated Press
