Q&A: Andrew Wiggins talks UK, fans, recruiting after game at Scott Co. (courier journal)
GEORGETOWN, Ky. – Andrew Wiggins, the nation’s No. 1 basketball prospect and a top recruiting target of the University of Kentucky, had 17 points (6 of 18 from the floor, 4 of 9 on free throws) and 11 rebounds on Sunday in helping his team, Huntington (W.Va.) Prep, defeat North Carolina’s Christian Faith Academy 61-44 on Sunday at Scott County High School.
There were more than 2,000 fans in attendance, most of whom were wearing some kind of UK apparel. So were UK coach John Calipari, assistants Orlando Antigua and Kenny Payne and UK players Kyle Wiltjer, Jarrod Polson and Brian Long.
Wiggins, formerly the nation’s No. 1 junior who recently reclassified to 2013, signed autographs for a line of dozens of fans after the game. Before that, he spoke with the media, reflecting on his game, the crowd and where his recruitment stands.
