Andrew Wiggins didn’t see much from the Florida State men on Wednesday night.
But he sure saw a lot from the school’s women.

During an official visit that began Tuesday, the 6-foot-8 Wiggins attended the game with his parents and former FSU star athletes Mitchell Wiggins and Marita Payne-Wiggins, who were honored at halftime.
“I like to see everything that happened there with my parents,” Wiggins said last week of FSU. “It would be a joy to go there, I mean great weather, great people, great education. Great coaching staff. They make players better. They don’t always get the best players in the nation, or top five or top ten, but they develop four-year players to get ready for the NBA.”
Wiggins is also considering Kentucky, North Carolina, Kansas and Ohio State and will sign in the spring.
He is the No. 1 ranked player in the Class of 2013 and is projected as the No. 1 draft pick in the 2014 NBA Draft.
