Stanford's array of zone defenses turned Andrew Wiggins into the world's most athletic spot-up shooter. The freshman phenom and potential No. 1 pick in this June's NBA draft attempted only six shots and sank only one of them in Kansas' stunning 60-57 loss to the 10th-seeded Cardinal in the round of 32. Worse yet, Wiggins was content to float around the perimeter and take jump shots when he did shoot, a product of both his own lack of aggressiveness and Bill Self's unwillingness to go to a smaller lineup and try playing him in the high post. Regardless, it was a poor last impression for Wiggins to leave after a largely successful freshman season.
