Sometimes, Andrew Wiggins looks like that superstar NBA prospect that everyone hyped him up to be.
And other times, he does not.
Wiggins recently finished 4-of-13 from the floor against Baylor and just 2-of-12 shooting in a bad loss to Texas. He didn't even take his first shot until over 15 minutes into that Baylor game. And for a player who thrives on rhythm, taking a backseat doesn't seem like the right answer.
However, Wiggins erupted in his previous two games, going for back-to-back season highs with 27 points against TCU and 29 against Iowa State. He came firing out of the gates, and once he found that zone, there was no looking back. Step-backs, pull-ups, spot-ups, hard drives—Wiggins went into takeover mode, something you really just wish he'd do more often.
Despite the frustrating inconsistency, the upside Wiggins recently flashed should keep him in the No. 1 overall conversation. I'm not sure he's the favorite anymore, but Wiggins is still a strong candidate with just over a month to go before the madness.
