Andrew Wiggins scored 32 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and quieted a somewhat hostile crowd in Huntington Prep’s 61-54 win over Walnut Hills on Friday.
Amid taunts of “overrated” and “U-S-A” from the opposing student section, the Canadian scored nine points to ignite a 14-3 run to close the first half.
“That motivates me to play better and that’s what happened,” Wiggins said. “As soon as they started talking, that’s when I started playing better — hitting my shots and everything. Them getting involved was bad for their team.”
Wiggins was the only double-figure scorer for Huntington, which improved to 11-0 on the season.
