Wiggins played 34 minutes as the Jayhawks beat Louisiana-Monroe 80-63 and had a solid all-around game. Wiggins only attempted nine shots but was still able to lead the team with 16 points. He showed nice touch from the outside, hitting 2-of-4 attempts from three-point range, and looked good going to the rim. Wiggins rounded out his stat line registering three rebounds, two assists and three steals.

It's going to be hard for more than a couple of those Kentucky guys to stand out statistically unless they start playing with two basketballs. That's what I never really understood about blue-chippers joining already loaded classes -- if your goal is to stand out in your freshman year and make yourself more appealing to the NBA, joining a bunch of other guys with the same goal seems counter productive.

Tell that to the Larry Johnson led unlv runnin rebels. Or Kentuckys draft class a couple of seasons ago.

Teams of players can stand out and demonstrate the ability to share the ball and play as a group.



That's what I thought until a few years ago. Remember when every starting player for Kentucky was drafted in the first round? They also had their freshmen backup center drafted as well.
