Andrew Wiggins is finding it hard to be everybody's Super Bowl.

That was the way that Kansas coach Bill Self described the up-and-down season of his talented freshman forward. One day, Wiggins will be pouring in 26 points against Florida, the next day he'll be struggling to get his shot off against UTEP.

It's already been a season of growing pains for the No. 1 recruit in last year's class, and while the eighth-ranked Jayhawks are starting to soar, Wiggins is still searching for his stride.

Said Self: "He leaves me wanting more, so when people say certain things, I can't be upset. I want more, too."
