Saxony Lutheran senior Max Wieser helped the top-seeded Crusaders to a first place finish at the Woodland Tournament this past weekend, averaging 17 points per game in his team's three victories.

Wieser, who was selected to the all-tournament team along with his teammate Zach Bohnert, scored 16 points in the championship game against third-seeded Meadow Heights.

He shot 69 percent from the field and 85 percent from the free-throw line. He also averaged five rebounds per game.

"Max is just the ultimate warrior," Saxony coach John Daniel. "He's a great competitor, has a great will to win and just finds a way to put the ball in the hole. It's not that he's the best shooter on our team or he certainly was not the best shooter in the tournament. But he's determined to find a way to put the ball in the hole.

"I've often said that when we are in transition I want to get him the ball because he's the best finisher around the basket who I've coached in my 15 years of coaching," Daniel added.
