Senior guard Nate Wolters leads his South Dakota State Jackrabbits into the 2013 Summit League Tournament looking to extend his career a little longer. Behind Wolters' 23 point per game, the Jackrabbits finished the conference slate 13-3 in league play with a tiebreaker over the No. 2 seed Western Illinois Leathernecks, who they beat twice during the regular season.
SDSU opens the traditional eight-team bracket against No. 8 seed IUPUI, which went just 1-15 against Summit League teams this season. In the top portion of the tournament bracket, the winner of that game will face the winner of No. 4 seed Oakland and No. 5 seed IPFW.
The bottom-half of the bracket is headlined by Western Illinois, whose only conference loss outside of the two games against SDSU came against Oakland. The Leathernecks open the postseason against No. 7 seed South Dakota. The winner of that game will play either No. 3 seed North Dakota State or No. 6 seed UMKC.
Though Nebraska-Omaha finished 6-10 in conference play, they won't participate in the league tournament because they're in the transitional period to join Division I.
