Wiggins Leads Record Draft for Canadian Basketball

Basketball, which was invented by a Canadian in the U.S. more than a century ago, is finally producing some top young talent in Canada.

Andrew Wiggins of the Toronto area was chosen first overall in the National Basketball Association draft last night, joining two other Canadians selected in the first round. It was the second straight year that a Canadian was chosen first in the draft, and the four players picked was a record for a country better known for hockey than hoops.
