He wasn’t. The arrival of talented freshman guard Randall Broddie has pushed Wiley out of his comfort zone as a short-spoken leader and into a more vocal role as occasional team taskmaster.
Wiley didn’t have much correcting to do Saturday afternoon against No. 13 St. John’s, when he and Broddie combined for 45 points in an 84-69 over the Cadets at DeMatha in the National High School Hoops Festival.
Broddie scored 15 of his 19 points in the first half and Wiley scored 14 in the second in a game that the Wolverines (2-0) never trailed after Broddie hit a three-pointer a little more than two minutes into the game.
“We had to work on [being more vocal] because I’m not the type to get into somebody,” said Wiley, one of Potomac’s two returning starters. “Now when I see my teammates [acting] goofy, I have to get into them.”
