ND Attack ended the summer on a high note, playing the best ball it had the entire season. Trey Wiest played a big part in that, as he got better and better as the summer went on too.
Wiest, a 6-foot guard from Mandan, regularly stuffed the stat sheet for ND Attack, putting up double figure points while creating easy points for his teammates and contributing on the glass and the defensive end. Finishing the summer strong was something Wiest was proud of.
“The summer was overall a very fun experience,” said Wiest. “I was happy with how it turned out. Got to play some good teams and compete against some good players.”
A strong slasher and facilitator, Wiest said a big key to his overall improvement during the summer was comfort with his jump shot.
“At the end of the season, the team started to relax and play together,” Wiest said of the summer. “The last two tournament I thought I played my best ball of the summer. I think my play progressed a lot from the start of the season to the end. My 3-pointer became more consistent and I started to utilize my jump shot off the dribble. I also feel like I became a better court leader.”
Wiest recently earned a scholarship offer from Jamestown and is certainly a hot prospect for a number of local schools.
“I’ve been talking to Jamestown, Mayville, Presentation, Concordia NE and BSC,” said Wiest. “I attended the Mayville elite camp and the Jamestown Elite Camp.”
While his jumper progressed during the summer, Wiest said he wants to continue fine-tuning that part of his game. With his quickness, court vision and ability to break people down off the dribble, the continued threat of an outside shot would unlock even more for him and his teammates offensively.
“My main goal from now until the winter is to work on my consistency with my shot, specifically from the 3-point line,” Wiest said. “Also I will be continuing to work out at Sanford Power.”
