"I think it helped a lot because it just kind of gave me that attitude that I don't like to lose, but you know it's going to happen sometimes," Wieben said. "The success we had my senior year, we just really came together and I'm trying to carry that attitude over to here."
"Just for the season I want to come in and get some playing time and just be a part of the team," Wieben said. "Be a team player and help the team get motivated. We're a pretty young team this year and so just to come in with good confidence right away."
Basketball isn't the only sport Wieben excels in; she's also an elite swimmer. Wieben won the 2001 state championship in the 400-yard freestyle relay and also won state titles in the 200-yard medley relay, 50-yard freestyle and 100-yard freestyle as a senior.
"Senior year swimming really helped my body to stay in shape during the off-season and gave me a little bit of break from basketball and just got my body recuperated," Wieben said.
Wieben started playing basketball in third grade and began swimming when she was eight. She has a love for both sports, but said her love of basketball override her desire to swim at the collegiate level.
"I just had more of a passion for basketball than swimming," Wieben said. "I really enjoy swimming and I had a great year my senior year and I'll never forget it, but I knew basketball was what I wanted to do in college."
