Andrew Wiggins plays with UK commits during pick-up game, throws up three goggles

thesquad

Six of UK’s seven 2013 commitments are in Chicago right now for Wednesday’s McDonald’s All-American game, along with Andrew Wiggins, aka “The Canadian Jordan.” All weekend, they’ve been enjoying the McDonald’s All-American festivities, which have included decorating cookies on Easter and various other photo ops. Yesterday, Wiggins made hearts across the Bluegrass go pitter-pat when he said that if he came to Kentucky, the Cats would be “the best college team ever.”

Things looked even better for the Cats last night when some of the players teamed up for a pick-up game and Wiggins chose to play on a team with the Harrison Twins, Julius Randle, and James Young. Not only did the “UK Super team” dominate their opponents (Jabari Parker, Aaron Gordon and others) by 35 points, but Wiggins threw up three goggles after sinking a three. KSR’s spies have obtained a picture of the heart-stopping moment, which you can view after the jump.

…but who’s to say it didn’t actually happen?

    Matt, if you don’t want people to ask about Harrow issues, then you shouldn’t have indicated you knew something and would share at a later time.

    you are a big idiot. I hope that Wiggins or his followers doesn’t read this. Idiots. KSR is the horrible at spreading rumors and crap just at the expense for entertainment. You are the “Pete Thamel” for Kentucky Basketball

    I think we need to calm down on the 3 goggles thing. Everyone does that now, it’s not a “UK Thing”

    I get it was an April Fools thing, but just an overall statement on the 3 goggles. We have to stop acting like it’s a UK thing.

    Yeah, I don’t associate three goggle with UK, nor does anyone else (anymore). Florida Gulf Coast was going it for crying out loud…

    If you are going to make up some shit, just say he committed to the cats. A luke warm pickup game is just stupid.

    Acting like the 3-goggles are “UK’s thing” makes us look stupid. Please stop. It was in the NBA long before our players started doing it. I bet people were doing it in pickup games around the country long before that.

    I posted a thread entitled “Davis and Gillchrist out for tonight’s game” last year on this day. The moderator of the board refused to post it saying it was too sensitive. Afterwards I agreed.

    I hit the “more” link without reading the article, so that was very confusing until I went back and read it.

    UK was in it at the end against Duke and we were terrible. UL beating Duke was impressive, but not overly so.

    Nerlens will not make a decision until he has more feedback from his rehab.

    Archie Goodwin set to declare for the draft, so i am told. Apparently it was annouced a few minutes ago via Twitter. Yeah, real news in an article that ended with a April Fools joke, KSR will have something shortly. WCS to return btw.
