Kansas' Andrew Wiggins scores game winning lay up (Video)

The Kansas Jayhawks just narrowly escaped upset on the road against the Texas Tech Raiders. Trailing by two points with just seconds left, sensational freshman guard Andrew Wiggins buried a lay up to give the Jayhawks the win.

He was coming into the paint when a teammate along the baseline through a rather weak and soft bounce pass to Wiggins. Still, he scooped it up and laid it in for the win preserving their record and their No. 8 spot. The No. 9 team in the country, the Villanova Wildcats, were upset by an unranked Providence Friars team tonight in double overtime.

Had Kansas been upset that would’ve made for an interesting night in college basketball, but the Jayhawks get the win.

Wiggins finished with a game-high 19 points.  He shot six of 11 and had six rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks.
