NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. — Andrew Wiggins and Jabari Parker were supposed to settle the question of who’s the No. 1 high school basketball player in America at high noon here on Friday.
But Parker, the No. 1 prospect in the Class of 2013, was a no-show at the Peach Jam due to a foot injury that has shelved him for the summer.
All Wiggins could do then was go out and beat the No. 2 player in 2013, Julius Randle.
And that’s exactly what he did.
In a dramatic game played before a few thousand people in a jam-packed gym, including Kentucky coach John Calipari and Kansas coach Bill Self, Wiggins put up a game-high 28 points and 13 rebounds as CIA Bounce remained undefeated here with an 81-80 OT victory over the Team Texas Titans. Wiggins outscored the Titans by himself in the extra period, 8-7.
