Wiggins to Miss Big Blue Madness

Andrew Wiggins won’t attend Big Blue Madness at Kentucky this weekend because he will be at home in Toronto visiting family while Huntington Prep has an extended fall break.

“Yes, he’s going home on fall break,” Huntington coach Rob Fulford told “He will get up to a game [at Kentucky].”

The news was first reported by Evan Daniels of

After landing twins Aaron and Andrew Harrison last week, the 6-foot-8 Wiggins remains Kentucky coach John Calipari’s top target.

In fact, Calipari went to watch Wiggins work out the night the twins announced.

Wiggins and Huntington are still slated to play in the Marshall County Hoopfest in Kentucky Nov. 30-Dec. 1 and Huntington is also tentatively slated to play games at Scott County High School in November, Fulford said.

Kentucky and Florida State have long been considered the leaders for Wiggins, to the point where everyone other than North Carolina has bowed out of the recruiting process.

Wiggins, the top overall player in high school basketball, has yet to decide whether he will reclassify to 2013 from 2014, which would enable him to enter the 2014 NBA Draft.

Kentucky still expects the Harrisons and 2013 commit Derek Willis at its Midnight Madness, along with uncommitted forwardย Marcus Lee and 2014s Jaquan Lyle and Cliff Alexander.

Sean Mahone, James Young’s Godfather, told he wasn’t certain if Young will attend.
