It literally seems like almost yesterday that the entire country–well, and Canada, too–was enthralled in the saga that was where Andrew Wiggins was going to play his collegiate basketball. Ultimately, he chose the Kansas Jayhawks and has had a tremendous season, as expected.
However, we all knew that Wiggins would be in college for only one year, so when it was time for Kansas’ Senior Night on Wednesday evening, it was also a goodbye to Wiggins as well.
Afterward, Wiggins expressed a sentiment that all college basketball fans are feeling, that his career went by too quickly.
“It went too quick,” Wiggins said late Wednesday after his own version of senior night, tucked away in a small room not far from those stands where he sat a year ago.
He then said how he wished he could stay longer.
“I wish I had more time to stay here and do my thing, just be here with the team and the coaches and all these wonderful fans,” Wiggins said, thoughtfully. “That’s one of the reasons I committed here. I came here on senior night and the fans were so loyal.”
I mean, he technically could stay longer, but that would not be advised upon by anyone. Wiggins will undoubtedly be a lottery pick in the upcoming NBA Draft, and has a bright future ahead of him.
