January 16, 2019: committed to Colorado
Unfortunately, she knows knee woes (Highlands Ranch Herald, 2/5/2019)
Wetta, who has committed to play basketball at the University of Colorado where her mother Val (Johnson) Wetta played for two seasons, has once again seen her role change this season from being a standout player to leading cheers on the bench.
“It’s definitely hard watching all your teammates play without you and you can’t even run,” she said. “It was a lot harder the first time that it happened. This time around it is a lot easier because I’ve been through it. I’ve got used to cheering on the team.
“I know ACL tears are more common for girls than guys. My dad (Rob) had an ACL tear and my mom tore both of hers. I don’t know if it necessarily is passed down to have weak knees in my genes or whatever. I had never even thought about it before my first one.”
Tough, hardnosed guard…High IQ…Reads the game well and reacts accordingly…Isn’t overly quick or fast, but finds a way to get to the paint and score…Ball handling needs some improvement, but has promise.
