There were two huge stories coming out of Morgantown, West Virginia on Saturday as not only did the West Virginia Mountaineers upset the eighth-ranked Kansas Jayhawks 92-86 in the final game of the regular season, but they were able to do so when Kansas’ star Andrew Wiggins turned in undoubtedly his best performance of his young career.
Wiggins dropped in 41 points in this one as he tried to will his team back to victory in the second half, and he nearly finished with a tremendous double-double by grabbing eight rebounds as well. He fouled out with 16 seconds to go in the game after the miraculous outing.
Kansas was down big at the half, 50-38, but Wiggins turned it on in the final 20 minutes and had the lead cut to five at one point, but in the end, West Virginia was able to get one last victory this season.
Still, the outing Wiggins had today was a great sign for the team going forward into this month and this team can only get better with the return of Joel Embiid from the back injury.
