Mitchell Wiggins, an All-American and Florida State's career scoring leader, made his mark at FSU in just two short seasons. The North Carolina native came to Florida State via McDonnell Junior College where he was a junior college All-American.

As a junior in 1982, his first season at FSU, Wiggins averaged 23.8 points per game to become the school's first Metro Conference scoring champion. He averaged just under 10 rebounds per contest, the best mark in the country for a guard. Wiggins represented Florida State while touring with the United States national team in the summer of 1982.

A first round draft pick of the Indiana Pacers in 1983, Wiggins was traded to the Houston Rockets, where he spent five of his six NBA seasons. He also played for the Golden State Warriors and Seattle Supersonics, averaging over 10 points per game in his NBA career.

Wiggins is still enjoying his professional career overseas in Europe.
