Wiebe is All-American

Bookmark and Share

Brady Wiebe has become one of the best basketball players to put on a Dakota Wesleyan jersey. For all his accomplishments, we've made him our Taco John's Athlete of the Week.


Brady Wiebe is the centerpiece to a Dakota Wesleyan team that returned just two starters from a season ago. The Tigers lost All-American Preston Broughton and Mitch Bain to graduation and Darrin Dorsey transferred. The team also has a new coach in former cougar bench minder Shane Murphy.


Brady Wiebe says, "I thought right away our team might struggle I mean we had new guys so it might so it might take awhile to gel."


Lucky for the Tigers all they needed was a two-time All-American in Wiebe. He hasn't disappointed either. Wiebe leads the GPAC in scoring at 20 points a game. He also claims the top rebounding spot with over nine a night. It's that type of effort that Coach Murphy is thrilled to have.


Shane Murphy says, "He's a guy that just does all the little things and he works so hard to get it done any coach appreciates that."


Wiebe is a crafty, intelligent, relentless worker that his coach can use as his eyes on the court.


Murphy says, "He sees things he knows how to relay things to his teammates more importantly he knows how to relay things to the coaching staff so we can make adjustments."


One adjustment, the two year captain has had to make is a transition from a offensive mentality to defense. Wiebe has embraced coach Murphy's style and his teammates followed. The stats are there as proof, the tigers lead the conference in scoring defense and field goal percentage defense which gives Weibe the opportunity to do what he thinks he does best.


Wiebe says, "Probably rebounding in my main focus trying to get those rebounds and limit the teams possessions and the rest just fits in from there."


Wiebe will go down in the history books as one of the greatest Dakota Wesleyan players of all time. He is 64 points away from being one of four two thousand point scorers at the school and he's accomplished all this in the most humble way an athlete can, giving credit to his teammates for his success.
