Exactly one month after his 19th birthday, the collegiate career of Andrew Wiggins came to a premature close.
The usual noises will be made about Wiggins possibly returning to Kansas, especially because of the way it all ended — in disappointing fashion, with the Vaughan native scoring just four points in a stunning 60-57 Stanford victory over No. 2 Kansas — but he’s done and far sooner than anybody expected.
While Stanford was led by its Canadian front-court of Dwight Powell and Stefan Nastic, Wiggins had a nightmarish exit in St. Louis, missing 5-of-6 shots in a four-point, four-rebound performance that was, at best, his second-worst game of the season.
Afterward, Wiggins was devastated, wiping away tears as the media entered the Kansas locker room. He then told reporters, “I laid an egg today. I let a lot of people down.”
Wiggins had a brutal game, but he didn’t get much help.
