Summit League Tournament 2013 bracket: Nate Wolters, South Dakota State the top seed

Nelson Chenault-US PRESSWIRE

Nate Wolters and the South Dakota State Jackrabbits enter the 2013 Summit League Tournament as the team to beat.

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.
