Scouts want to see Andrew Wiggins take over. It's that simple.
We know about the talent, and we know about the fundamental weaknesses—his handle, shooting consistency, finishing ability—they're all fixable in time.
Scouts will be more concerned with his level of impact on the tournament than how well he's finishing with his left hand in traffic.
They want to see Wiggins prove he can be that guy who can go get a bucket when the team needs it most.
It might be with five minutes left in the first half when the opponent is making a run. It might be with five minutes left in the second with his team down a point.
But ideally, they'll also want to see it happen for longer than a half or just one game. Without Joel Embiid, Kansas is going to need Wiggins to step up, especially if they have to face New Mexico, one of the hotter teams in the country, in the Round of 32.
Wiggins was excellent in the Big 12 tournament semis against Oklahoma State, scoring 30 points, including a few big ones late in regulation. But he shot just 7-of-21 from the floor in Kansas' loss to Iowa State in the finals.
Scouts could be disappointed if Wiggins trades a big performance in the Round of 64 with a dud in the Round of 32—especially if that dud comes in an upset loss.
