Default Andrew Wiggins responds to SI article with 57 points

Huntington Prep (W.Va.) senior star Andrew Wiggins was the subject of a Sports Illustrated piece by Pete Thamel that dropped Thursday.

It wasn't exactly a glowing depiction of the Canadian phenom's top-ranked prospect in the Class of 2013.

Thamel detailed the failures of recent basketball imports from Canada, highlighted his relationship with controversial Toronto hoops coach/handler Ro Russell, hit on his father's past substance abuse issues and raised questions about his motivation.

Wiggins responded Thursday night with a career high 57 points to go along with 13 rebounds and four blocked shots in a 111-59 win over the Marietta (Ohio) College junior varsity squad.

"After that article dropped, I knew I had to respond," Wiggins told Zac Jackson of Fox Sports Ohio. "That was the best way to respond."
