Merry Christmas, y’all:
Jay Bilas of ESPN ranks SDSU star Nate Wolters as the No. 8 player in college basketball in his latest rankings. A former Duke forward, Bilas writes: “Wolters is one of those players that doesn’t ‘wow’ talent evaluators or jump off the charts in ‘measurables,’ but the experienced senior point guard can really play.”
Here’s the full story (Insider access required).
Here are some video highlights from the SDSU women’s basketball team beating Georgetown on Friday afternoon in Washington, D.C. That’s three wins for the Jacks this season against teams that have been in the top 30 of the Associated Press poll (Nebraska, Middle Tennessee State and Georgetown).
The final RPI for NCAA Division I volleyball is out. SDSU finished 166th, which is pretty close to the middle (there are a total of 330 teams). That ranked seventh in the Summit League, punctuating how good the conference has gotten in that spot. IPFW led the way at No. 50.
SDSU men’s basketball recruit Anders Broman, a senior guard at Lakeview Christian in Duluth, needs seven points Thursday against Mesabi East in the Hibbing Tournament to break the career scoring record in Minnesota high school boys basketball. He currently has 4,080. The old mark was set in 2010 by post Kevin Noreen, who was named Mr. Basketball and now plays for West Virginia.
