In her career, Wesemann was 264-of-764 (.346) and ranks fifth in school history and 13th in Big 12 history for career 3-point field goals made. She was the fifth player in school history with 250 or more 3-point field goals made and just the second player to register 300 or more assists and 250 or more 3-point field goals made.

Wesemann made a 3-point field goal in 102 of 128 career games. She made four or more 3-point field goals in a game 24 times in her career, including a career-high eight against Texas on Feb. 4, 2015. Of her 1,295 career points, 61.2 percent (792 points) came from beyond the arc.

In the 2016-17 season, Wesemann earned All-Big 12 First Team honors for the first time in her career by averaging a career-high 13.9 points per game (474 points) and buried a career-high 90 three-pointers on 256 attempts. Her 90 connections from beyond the arc ranks 23rd in the nation and the most by any player in the Big 12 this season. Over the last two seasons, Wesemann has made 175 three-point field goals, the most of any player in the league during this time.

The 90 made 3-point field goals ranks sixth in school history for a single season and is third for 3-point field goals made by a senior. Her 256 attempts rank fourth in school history for a season.
