Kentucky Wildcats Basketball: Andrew Wiggins, James Young put up ridiculous numbers in wins


-As you may or may not have heard by now, SI writer Pete Thamel wrote a piece today on UK prospect Andrew Wiggins, and mentioned how Wiggins would probably choose FSU over UK due to the fact that he wouldn’t be able to handle the attention. He also said, “But Wiggins must carry with him the burden of a country’s basketball hopes, its legacy of underachieving players and a reputation for only playing hard when necessary.” Wiggins reacted, and scored a whopping 57 points on 24-for-28 shooting for Huntington Prep (WV) in their 111-59 win. He also had 13 rebounds and four blocks.

-Wiggins wasn’t the only one to have an incredible night, so did UK commit James Young. Young had 43 points, 22 rebounds, and seven assists for Rochester (MI) in their 78-60 win.

-Los Angeles Clippers guard Eric Bledsoe will be apart of this year’s NBA Slam Dunk Contest, along with: Jeremy Evans (Utah), Kenneth Faried (Denver), Gerald Green (Indiana), Terrence Ross (Toronto), and James White (New York). He becomes the first former Cat to be in the dunk contest since Rex Chapman.

-And in case you missed it…for your enjoyment. This will be on popcorn boxes nationwide pretty soon.
