Kyle Wiltjer could be playing for No. 1 and undefeated Kentucky this season.
Instead, he is the leading scorer for No. 3 Gonzaga, and couldn’t be happier.
“I saw a great fit here,” Wiltjer said. “The system here is tailored to a player like me who plays inside and outside.”
The 6-foot-10 Wiltjer, who sat out last year because of transfer rules, has been a key reason that Gonzaga (17-1, 6-0 West Coast) is off to a great start.
Wiltjer is averaging 16 points and 5 rebounds per game. He’s shooting 53 percent from the floor, including 43 percent from 3-point range.
