ABERDEEN - Zach Horstman, a former Winner basketball standout, has been hired as a full-time assistant basketball coach at Northern State, the school said Thursday.

Horstman was a graduate assistant for the Wolves in each of the last two seasons.

“His experience with our recruiting, system of play, scouting, and game preparation will be invaluable for this upcoming season,” head coach Paul Sather said in a press release. “He has had a huge impact on our program these past two years and has developed terrific relationships with our new and returning players, not to mention the 2019 recruiting class.”

Horstman worked with Northern State’s big men, helping develop Carter Evans and Logan Doyle into two of the best post players in the NSIC.

"I've learned so much in my two years under Coach Sather and am looking forward to continuing my development as a coach under him and Coach Jamie Stevens,” Horstman said.

Horstman stays with a team that has gone 58-12 over the past two seasons, including 36-4 and an Elite Eight appearance last season. Horstman was the 2011 South Dakota Gatorade Player of the Year before scoring 347 career points on 42.6 percent shooting at South Dakota State.
