09:25 AM ET 11.09 | This was supposed to be Andrew Wiggins' Kansas debut, a nice little warmup for the Jayhawks' showdown with No. 4 Duke on Tuesday in the Champions Classic in Chicago. But here it was, an imperfect start befitting of a young team still finding its way. Wiggins showed more signs of his precocious talent, finishing with a team-high 16 points and three rebounds on five-of-nine shooting. But there were quiet moments, too, like a stretch in the first half when Wiggins went scoreless for nearly 14 minutes after a layup in the opening minute. But in the moments after the game, Self mentioned that Wiggins had led KU in shot attempts after two exhibition games and his regular-season debut. "That's a positive," Self said. "Because I'm kind of trying to force him to do that. But I thought he did some good things offensively, without question, tonight. It's a hard game to play. It's a fragmented game."

I'm completely bored with CBB this year. The new rules regarding blocking/charging is CBB's misguided attempt to increase offensive output. What they fail to consider is no fan really wants to watch another break in the action for more foul shots.

If I want to wacth a start-stop-start-stop contest consisting of dunks interrupted by foul shots I'll tune to a NBA game.
