March 23 College Basketball Game Thread: Have Mercer

New, comments

Oh, and Wiggins. Him too.

When will Andrew Wiggins get some exciting opposition in the NCAA Tournament? As a result of Kansas being a 2-seed, on Friday he saw a 15th seeded directional Kentucky school and today Kansas has drawn Stanford, a team that plays a more plodding style with only one NBA prospect to speak of, forward Dwight Powell. And if Kansas wins, then they play Dayton in the Sweet 16.

But Andrew Wiggins against not the best opposition is better than no Wiggins at all and if you want even more Wiggins after that, Andrew's older brother Nick Wiggins (not much of an NBA prospect) plays for Wichita State 30 minutes after Andrew's game ends. The only thing more adorable than the Wiggins brothers is the Wiggins brothers getting drawn in the same 2nd and 3rd round pods.
