Default Wiggins scores 57 after being burned by SI

Nothing brings out the best in a Canadian like being criticized in America.
As days in the life of the 17-year-old Great Canadian Hoops Hope go, Thursday had to be somewhere in the top third for Andrew Wiggins. On the same day that Sports Illustrated basketball writer Pete Thamel penned a semi-scathing look at Wiggins and Canadian basketball that cast "Canada's Michael Jordan" as having to "outrace a country's reputation for producing can't-miss prospects that miss," Wiggins went off for 57 points in his Huntington Prep's team 111-59 cakewalk over the Marietta College JV Pioneers. In other words, give or take a basket either way and Wiggins would have outscored Marietta by himself.
The game was a mismatch from the opening tip, but anything to prove a point. Wiggins, who will play his last high school game on Canadian soil in Hamilton on Feb. 17, got his 57 on 24-of-28 shooting from the floor, along with 13 rebounds and four blocks.
Wiggins might have played down the S.I. piece for reporters ("when the article came out, I didn't pay it too much mind"). But he made it known how he felt.
