We all knew it was coming... Andrew Wiggins has taken the cover of Sports Illustrated and fans everywhere are salivating over this coveted issue!
His rookie card was previously found in Sports Illustrated for kids and has made some people money on eBay. He was also on the cover of SLAM Magazine along with Jabari Parker. You can find both of these on Amazon on the right side of this post (unless they're sold out of course).

Tonight KU Jayhawks fans were wowed by Andrew Wiggins' vertical and his Suit & Tie dance moves in the 2013 Late Night in the Phog. What is Late Night in the Phog? It's an annual University of Kansas tradition where the basketball players do skits, dance and then practice in front of fans. This year thousands of people were turned down at the door as Allen Fieldhouse filled in a hurry with 16,300 fans getting the coveted seats to watch the show and scrimmage.
Andrew started off his performance by dancing to Justin Timberlake's hit "Suit and Tie." As you can see in the photo above he looked pretty sharp as he did so. Next, as the team warmed up Wiggins tried to do a few spectacular dunks but took a few shots before he got his college jitters out. Finally, there was a team scrimmage and his stats are shown on the right.
Andrew Wiggins Stats for
Late Night in the Phog:
Total Points: 12
Playing Time: 13 minutes
Rebounds: 1 defensive
Dancing Rating: 10/10
Our favorite Tweet of the evening goes to @DoctorNaismith who did a great parody on Andrew Wiggins being compared to basketball superstars and switched the situation around to overstate his dancing ability. How would you rate Andrew Wiggins' dancing at Late Night? Let us know in comments!
Want to see Andrew Wiggins dancing at Late Night in the Phog again? Check out the video below! He is on the left if you're having trouble spotting the hair. This video cracks us up!
After watching the video above, we're not so sure that Andrew's training with tWitch from So You Think You Can Dance has really paid off yet (See our post on Andrew Wiggins at the ESPYs
for more details on that).
Here's a video of him being introduced before the scrimmage along with some Andrew Wiggins highlights
(you've got to love them)! More photos and videos will be added as they become available.

then head over to our page if you want to know just how high Andrew Wiggins vertical
really is. This guy can soar and tonight was just a small taste of what we have in store! Along with a 14 point contribution from teammate Perry Ellis, the Blue Team beat the Crimson team 66-40.
This new Kansas Jayhawks team is bursting with talent and should be very exciting to watch this year!
Andrew Wiggins will be at the ESPYS tonight which air at 8pm CT! You may also be able to catch him on the red carpet around 6:15pm CT. Be sure to tune in to ESPN to watch for him! I'll update this blog as we get photos and more news.
