As a Junior (1998-99): Wiese, a three-time first-team Academic All-Big 12 selection, posted a 10-10 record. He began the season with the No. 6 spot before moving up to No. 5 singles for Nebraska's final seven matches of 1999 after Juan Hamdan dislocated his shoulder. Wise also competed at No. 1 doubles with senior Dinko Verzi. The two combined for a 7-14 mark.
As a Sophomore (1997-98): Wise played Nos. 4-6 singles for NU, posting a 9-13 mark. He teamed with Jorge Abos Sanchez and went 5-3 in No. 2 doubles competition. Wiese also played with Joakim Larsson at the Nos. 1-3 spots, going a combined 7-6.
As a Freshman (1996-97): Wise went 10-8 in singles, including an 8-8 mark at No. 6 and a 2-0 performance at No. 5 singles. The 1997 Academic All-Big 12 selection posted an 8-15 record at No. 3 doubles.
