Andrew Wiggins, Fr., Kansas: Next » 1 of 11 « Prev
Wiggins had the best showing of his young college career, even though his Jayhawks got beat twice. He was more assertive at the offensive end of the floor and definitely looked to attack the rim.

In a 75-72 buzzer-beating loss to Colorado, Wiggins scored 22 points on 7-of-11 shooting in only 28 minutes of action because of foul trouble. He also attempted a career-high nine free throws and made seven.

Wiggins was even better against the Florida Gators, but the Jayhawks still got beat on the road, 67-61. He set new career-highs in minutes (37), points (26), rebounds (11), blocks and even free throws made (eight). He shot 7-of-15 from the floor, including 4-of-9 from 3-point range and 8-for-8 from the charity stripe in recording his first double-double of his college career.

Wiggins has stepped his game up, and fans now seeing why he is considered such a remarkable talent.

What? No Jabari Parker? ESPN has him outperforming Wiggins on their freshman watch yet you don't have him on your list at all. Too many players from the same few teams. What are you a Kansas and Kentucky fan?

You will notice at the beginning of the article it says that both Duke and Michigan State have prolonged breaks between games so there is nothing to report. Jabari Parker, Rodney Hood and Gary Harris are all regularly part of these stories.
