Denison-Schleswig is heading into the postseason with a head full of steam, and it’s junior point guard Charlie Wiebers that’s been making the Monarchs go this season.
A 5’11 floor general, Wiebers is a guy who can score and assist well. He’s averaging 16.7 points and 4.5 assists per game for the 15-4 Monarchs.
“I would say I’m a playmaker and I can get to the hoop. I’ve got a good shot, but I like to create for my teammates also,” said Wiebers, who is also averaging 3.3 steals and 4.8 rebounds.
“The defensive end of the floor is very important to me, I like to get steals and rebounds and push in transition to get easy buckets is always key.”
Wiebers and Co. clinched a share of the Hawkeye 10 conference championship last Friday, now they’re heading into substate play ready to make their move towards state.
“We really progressed throughout the season and have become more of a team. And everyone can score, especially me and Goanar (Biliew); when we get it going, we’re a hard team to stop,” said Wiebers. “We’re just looking to keep on riding that momentum into the postseason, and see what happens.”
When his junior season is finished next month, Wiebers will head right into track season. He’s still debating on whether he’ll do baseball or not this summer.
Track, though, is certainly another sport that Wiebers excels at. As a sophomore, he participated in two events last season at the state track meet.
“Track to me isn’t something I take as serious as basketball, but I like to do my best with it and it makes me stronger and a better athlete, it really helps,” said Wiebers, who says he may or may not play grassroots basketball this summer.
“If I don’t do baseball, I’ll probably go play AAU ball with Goanar somewhere. Me and Goanar like to go together.”
Wiebers added: “College basketball has been a dream of mine since I was little, but there’s not really been much recruitment yet. Hopefully that will come, I still got a whole year of basketball yet and then maybe AAU this summer.”
