3- ANDREW WIGGINS REALIZING HIS POTENTIAL: It is tough for an 18-year old kid figuring out how just how good he can be on a collegiate level, especially when he is just playing for a few months. Andrew Wiggins has shown some flashes of just how good he might become, but the question remains if he can find a level of comfort where he can fit into a team structure while still excelling as an individual.

This is a tough line to walk for any young athlete. Coaches want him to be more aggressive but he still needs to do it at the right time, and in the right situation. As a young player with only 12 collegiate games under his belt, it is very difficult to know when to charge ahead, and when to rein things in.

It is the coaching staff’s duty to help Wiggins be the best college player he can be in a very short time. Wiggins has struggled with an apparent lack of intensity at times, an obvious inconsistency at other times, when these tow things overlap is usually when Wiggins and the Jayhawks don’t play very well.

It is a tough task ahead but Kansas will need Wiggins to pick up his game if the Jayhawks are to have a chance at continuing their streak.
