Joe Wieskamp on Hawkeyes: ‘This is just the starting point’

Hawkeye Headquarters

It was an impressive year for Joe Wieskamp in his rookie season with the Hawkeyes, averaging 11 points and nearly five rebounds per game — starting all 35 of Iowa’s contests.

He was also named to the All-Big Ten Freshman Team and the Muscatine native says he believes this season was a preview of things to come. 

“Can’t ask for much better of a freshman year for me,” Wieskamp said. “I learned so much throughout this whole year, just changed a lot as a person and as a player. Learned how to scout different teams, go out there and execute against some of the best players in the country, you know, NBA-potential players, so I can’t ask for much better than that. We have so much talent in this room…this is just the starting point for us. We know that we’re gonna have a great offseason as well and get ready for next year. I promise you we will be back.”
