The 2014 NBA Draft tracker: Wiggins beginning to show his remarkable ability (11 items)
There is so much talent in college basketball right now that it is hard to cover it all.
While the biggest stars have shone bright last week, some of their highly ranked teams didn't in falling at the hands of so-called lesser opponents. Kentucky and its unbelievable freshman class fell to Baylor, while Kansas lost twice.
Other teams are also in the midst of a long break between games, so there is nothing to report on Duke and Michigan State, who are both right in the middle of almost a two-week break between games.
Here is a look at how the best players from college basketball did last week:
1 of 11. Andrew Wiggins, Fr., Kansas:
In a 75-72 buzzer-beating loss to Colorado, Wiggins scored 22 points on 7-of-11 shooting in only 28 minutes of action because of foul trouble. He also attempted a career-high nine free throws and made seven.
Wiggins was even better against the Florida Gators, but the Jayhawks still got beat on the road, 67-61. He set new career-highs in minutes (37), points (26), rebounds (11), blocks and even free throws made (eight). He shot 7-of-15 from the floor, including 4-of-9 from 3-point range and 8-for-8 from the charity stripe in recording his first double-double of his college career.
Wiggins has stepped his game up, and fans now seeing why he is considered such a remarkable talent.
2 of 11. Wayne Selden Jr., Fr., Kansas:
The game against Florida was even tougher. He played just 14 minutes and committed four turnovers and made 1-of-4 shots from the field. He finished the game with four points, one rebound and an assist.
3 of 11. Joel Embiid, Fr., Kansas:
Embiid played 30 minutes against the Gators but only took six shots in the loss. He finished the game with six points, six rebounds, two assists and three blocks.
4 of 11. Aaron Gordon, Fr., Arizona:
Against New Mexico State, Gordon was better from the field, but was brutal from the free-throw line. The Wildcats thoroughly beat the Aggies, 74-48. Gordon ended the game with 11 points on 5-of-12 shooting from the field, but made just 1-of-6 from the line. He also had his lowest rebounding output of the season with four boards.
5 of 11. Marcus Smart, So., Oklahoma State:
Smart is the kind of player who doesn't have to score the ball to make an impact and that's what he did against the Gamecocks.
