What if Andrew Wiggins never came to Kansas?

That's what people thought in 2009, 2012, and 2013.

What if Andrew Wiggins never came to Kansas?

With the absence of one player creates opportunities for other players. The focus wouldn't be on Andrew Wiggins anymore, but Selden would have a more increased role on offense and Greene and AWIII would be getting the bulk of the minutes at the 3 spot.

It's amazing what happens to players when they get minutes and have the opportunity, the trust, and the ability to screw up with their coach. When that happens their overall production goes up regardless of the player and that's especially true at Kansas. Just ask Releford, Morningstar, Reed, and Withey who were all players that had question marks next to their names prior to their "Big Minute" seasons.

It would be no different for Greene or AWIII with the only difference possibly being the learning curve. Selden and other guys would pick up the scoring load as we've seen with past Kansas squads.

I agree with the poster above that Wiggins may be the difference between a Sweet 16 or second round exit and a Final 4 berth though.

Clearly you don't have a point when you try to compare Wichita State to Kansas' scout team. That's not two people disagreeing with each other. That's just being dumb. Now that's showing zero class.

They very well could or they very well wouldn't. We'll never know that answer but they still have the ability to to compete with anybody in the country as Creighton has shown this year by moving conferences.

With that said, saying Kansas' scout team would be undefeated doesn't give you much creditbility IMO.

You could look at Butler, but they lost all their talent, lost their coach...they are basically starting from scratch. Creighton would have been a better example to use had Wichita State moved conferences this past season.

Wichita State doesn't have much wiggle room because they have zero football and a BCS (Thank God the BCS is dead) conference isn't going to invite a school without a football program.

That's why the Big East went the route they did. If the Big East ever expanded I could see schools like Gonzaga (They wanted to but proximity was the downfall) and Wichita State being on the list of possible invitees. I could also see Davidson possibly.

How has Creighton done since moving? Last I looked they are in the Top 10 in both AP polls and in the Top 5 of the Kenpom rankings.

Weren't they suppose to lose in the early rounds of the tournament last year? Didn't they play "Real Teams" last year and make a "Final 4"?

So..when Kansas lost to Bucknell, Bradley, UNI, and VCU in the tournament they actually lost to "Fake Teams", right?

The comments on here are baffling. Give Wichita State their due. You all sound like a bunch of entitled uninformed posters. I am sure you all thought Southern Illinois in the 2007 Sweet 16 was going to be cake walk as well. Unbelievable!
