Nate Wolters made some history Thursday night and nearly broke the Intertubes in the process, putting up 53 points in an important Summit League road win over Fort Wayne.
That’s the most in a single game in South Dakota State history, breaking a mark that had been in place since 1973, and the most by any NCAA Division I player in a non-overtime game in four years.
His final line: 17 of 28 from the field, 9 of 14 from deep - a school record for makes - and 10 of 11 from the foul line for 53 points in 40 minutes. He also threw in four boards and three times.
We figured we better call a witness to make sure any or all of this actually happened. Enter Tyler Merriam, radio voice of the Jackrabbits, out guest on this emergency edition of the Too Much TV podcast.
Oh, and here’s some film from the game.
