Wiggins Named NABC All-America Second Team

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Kansas freshman Andrew Wiggins was named to the 2014 National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) All-America Second Team, the NABC announced Tuesday.
Wiggins set the Kansas freshman single-season scoring record with 597 points, surpassing the 589 points by Ben McLemore set in 2012-13. The Vaughan, Ontario, Canada, guard, Wiggins had 11 games of 20 or more points during the 2013-14 season, including a KU freshman record 41 at West Virginia (3/8). Wiggins led Kansas in steals with 41 and tied for the team high in three-pointers made with 43. His 5.9 rebound average was third-best on the team and his 34 blocked shots were second-most for the Jayhawks.
Besides his 597 points, other Kansas freshman season records Wiggins set include: scoring average (17.1), field goals attempted (422), free throws made (176) and free throws attempted (227).
Historically, Wiggins’ selection to the NABC All-America team marks the 34th time a Jayhawk has been named to the NABC All-America Team (list below). Since 2007, Kansas has had at least one player named to one of the three NABC All-America teams every year. In 2012-13 McLemore was named second team and Jeff Withey third team All-America by the NABC.
Kansas went 25-10 in 2013-14 and won its 10th-straight, 14th Big 12 and NCAA-leading 57th conference regular-season title with a 14-4 league record.
