Lincoln Wieseman also comes from a long line of athletes: His father played football at South Dakota State and his brother Laramie and sister Lana are basketball players at Beloit College.

And that's the sport that the 6-foot-5 Badger High School junior excels at, having earned Southern Lakes Conference honorable mention recognition last year after averaging a team-leading 10.1 points per game.

The youngest Wieseman son is hoping to help Badger turn more L's into W's after Badger lost six games by five points or less and wound up 8-15 overall and 3-11 in SLC action.
And third-year Badgers' coach Darin Lottig said Wieseman is the right player to lead such a turnaround.

“Lincoln put a lot of time into working on his skills and had a good fall … and that breeds success,” Lottig said. “I've seen gifted players ruin teams before, but he does not want to do that. He does what makes us a better team. And part of his growth on the offensive end is taking what the defense gives him, whether it's hitting a three-pointer or going into the low post. He's just into making basketball plays, whether it's reversing the ball and giving it up or making a screen.”
