Inducted: November 6, 2010
One of the best ever to wear a South Dakota State basketball uniform, Mark Tetzlaff was inducted into the prestigious Jackrabbit Sports Hall of Fame in the fall of 2010.
Tetzlaff finished his career as the Jackrabbit men's basketball all-time leading scorer (1,931 points) and rebounder (1,132 rebounds) — records that still stand today. He also set the SDSU career record for field goal percentage of 60.7 percent, including shooting 62.3 percent (130-of-332) from the floor during his junior season.
A Hayti native, Tetzlaff was a three-time all-North Central Conference selection, earning NCC Most Valuable Player honors during the 1984-85 season, when he averaged 18.6 points and 8.8 rebounds per game. During his senior season, the Jackrabbits won the NCC championship and North Central Regional title before advancing to the NCAA Division II championship game. Tetzlaff was named the MVP of the 1985 Division II Final Four after tallying 32 points and 14 rebounds against Mount Saint Mary's (Md.) in the semifinals, and adding 21 points and 13 rebounds as the Jackrabbits were edged by Jacksonville State (Ala.) in the title tilt.
He also was a member of the all-New England Regional Team during the 1983-84 season and was named MVP of the NCC Holiday Tournament in 1982.
