Lana Wieseman continues to compile impressive statistics, and this could be the season that her hard work and those personal accomplishments finally translate into the most important number – more victories for her team.

The 6-foot-1 junior and 2012 Badger High School graduate was averaging a team-leading 22.2 points per game, which topped the Midwest Conference,  as the Beloit College women's basketball team got off to a 4-5 start.

That record may not sound great, but it's a vast improvement considering the Buccaneers finished 4-19 and 7-16, respectively, during her first two years.

Wieseman played three varsity seasons for coach David Jooss at Badger, receiving second team All-Southern Lakes Conference honors as a sophomore and making the first team her final two years, adding Player of the Year laurels while averaging 18.5 ppg in helping the Badgers to the league title as a senior.

She reached those heights while playing forward and center, where she has spent most of her time since joining the Bucs. However, opponents must now worry about Wieseman's increasing versatility.
