    Nike Hoop Summit highlights. Wigginton definitely has a great feel for where the open shooters are, definitely a pass-first PG. 7 assists (high for all players) in 22 minutes.

    Looking forward to seeing him develop under Prohm.

    Watched the first half of the Hoops Summit, recorded the rest. Bottom line to me, wigginton s team was much better when he was in the game. That's the highest praise you can give a point guard IMHO.

    I was thinking the same. After the game I noticed his minutes played were 2nd on the team

    Agreed, he is a scoring PG. But he said going into this game that he wanted to put his PG skills and passing on display to show people he could do it. Well, he did it. I think we gotta great one here boys.

    It was a smart move by him for his pro ambitions. This event caters to NBA scouts and put names on the their draft boards. Due to his size 6'2" his best position is PG in the NBA. Wigginton had a number of prospect that can finish getting them the ball to score shows he can play in that way. Lindell be asked to score more for ISU so he'll have pliantly of time to show that aspect of the game in the next years.

    He may be close to it next year as he adjusts to finishing in a P5 conference. I'm hoping we can land Brown and let him be the scorer.

    Watching him the 3P contest. Ha, so maybe McNeill and Lewis will do the shooting.

    This is the worst dunk contest ever. Three point wasn't much better. Woof

    Yeah, is it common to see so many air balls in a 3P contest?

    One of the announcers mentioned Wigginton after a play about going to Iowa State and that he could be a one-and-done. Very excited about him, realize he's now a 5-star, feel he'll make an instant impact on our team, but I guess when it comes to the big12 level he will have to play at, especially on defense, I don't sense that early of a departure. And that's perfectly fine with me....we'll take him for more years. Now, if he proves amazing during his freshmen season, I'll gladly eat those words, but there's a lot of talent on these multiple all-star teams and he happens to be one of them. Not to mention all the talented upperclassmen in the big 12.

    He could be one and done if he wanted to be. He said he wants to play two or three years at Iowa State though. Which is great for us, and makes him better/a higher draft pick.

    I guess anyone could be a one and done, but I assume you mean get drafted after one? He's not at that level imo. Is he on any draft boards? He'll be a great player for us, eventually.

    That's only if you're assuming he isn't going to get better during a year starting in the Big12. NBA drafts on potential, which he has.

    He's got so much potential that he's not showing up on draft boards? Let's not get too carried away. Lots of guys have potential.

    I think he'll be fine, but he did just airball three times in a shooting competition.

    Royce White didn't show up on draft boards until March of the one year he played. Show me a mock draft a year out that's 100% accurate and I'll trust your precious boards of the future.

    He wasn't a 5 Star a week ago, but he is now? Weird how things change huh. A lot of people thought he should be a 5 star, before Rivals made the change on their board.
