Andrew Wiggins helps lead World to victory in Nike Hoop Summit — Cuse Clicks

Playing in his last game ever as a high school student. Andrew Wiggins came up a winner. The 6-foot-7 senior from Huntington (W.V.) Prep went for 17 points, nine rebounds and four assists as the World Team defeated the USA team, 112-98, in Portland, Ore. Wiggins went for 20 points and seven rebounds a year ago when the World beat the USA, 84-75. The USA had never lost consecutive games to the World Team before. “It means a lot, it’s never been done and it means even more because I have a Canadian coach with me … so it’s a special thing we can cherish and it’s a special opportunity to be here and play against the best,” Wiggins, who is expected to play with Canada at the U-20 World Championships this summer, told Michael Grange of sportsnet.ca.
