Kansas star Andrew Wiggins scores epic half-court buzzer beater

Published Add your comment

With only a handful of the 'class of 2013' currently making a discernible impact in the NBA, attentions turned towards the 2014 draft a long time ago.

Touted by many as potentially one of the deepest and most talented draft classes in recent history, it seems a mere formality that the likes of Jabari Parker, Dante Exum, Joel Embiid, Marcus Smart, Aaron Gordon and Julius Randle will be entering the league with a bang next season.

One man who has long been thought - many people still have him nailed on as no.1 - as a future NBA star is Andrew Wiggins. The Canadian forward, still just 18-years-old, is a Freshman at the University of Kansas.

Wiggins provided a sensational reminder of his considerable talent on Tuesday night, as the Jayhawks recorded a comfortable 69-52 win over the Baylor Bears in their Big 12 matchup.

Although he had been held scoreless for most of the first half, Wiggins responded in fine style in the dying seconds before the interval. With just one second remaining, he intercepted a rogue Bears pass before launching an incredible heave from just before half-court that got nothing but net to put Kansas up 35-27.

He eventually finished the night with 14 points, seven rebounds and five assists.

Take a look at the incredible shot in the video above - with thanks to Bleacher Report and ESPN for bring it to our attention.
