Wiggins Wins One-on-One Contest at Iverson Classic
The 6-foot-6 Wiggins defeated future Ohio State guard Luther Muhammad -- considered one of the best defenders in the 2018 class -- in the final one-on-one battle. Wiggins clinched the win on a long contested fadeaway jumper over his right shoulder. Other participants included Jahvon Quinerly (Villanova), Brandon Slater (Villanova), Kevin Porter (USC), Ja’Vonte Smart (LSU), Elijah Weaver (USC), Luguentz Dort (Arizona State), Ayo Dosunmu (Illinois), Landers Nolley (Virginia Tech) and Courtney Ramey (unsigned).
Wiggins also finished runner-up to Smart in the three-point contest. Porter defeated Georgetown-bound Max McClung in the dunk contest. The event concludes tonight (Saturday) with the Iverson Classic All-American game, which begins at 6:30. A live stream will be available here.
Wiggins is one of four members of the Terps’ seventh-ranked 2018 recruiting class. His one-on-one scoring should help a Maryland team which averaged 0.68 points per possession in end-of-shot-clock situations this past season.
