Get ready for Wiggins-mania, Canada.

TSN announced Tuesday it would broadcast every Kansas Jayhawks basketball games this season as Canadian star Andrew Wiggins begins his NCAA career. Wiggins, a native of Vaughan, Ont. and a freshman at Kansas, is projected as a potential No. 1 pick for the 2014 NBA draft.

"As the top prospect in basketball and now a Sports Illustrated cover star, the excitement surrounding Andrew Wiggins is soaring," TSN VP of programming Shawn Redmond said.

"We are thrilled to bring Andrew to Canadian fans as he takes flight in the NCAA, the place where the next generation of NBA greats make their debut on the national stage."

TSN's slate of Kansas games, the majority of which will air live, starts Nov. 8 when the Jayhawks take on the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks. Four more KU games will air in November.

"There are many Canadian basketball fans who can't wait to watch Andrew and follow the Jayhawks this season," Kansas coach Bill Self said. "When we have played in Canada in the pre-season, a lot of KU fans have come to see us play. Now they can watch all our games on TSN, which will be great exposure for Kansas basketball."
