Wichita State Shockers
The Wichita State Shockers are on a high and they seem to be not putting on the brakes anytime soon. Their recent game was a very convincing victory over the Memphis Tigers with Jamarius Burton leading the charge providing his team with 16 points, three rebounds, three assists and two steals. Erick Stevenson had 12 points and four rebounds while shooting 3-of-7 from the three-point line.
Tyson Etienne had 11 points and four rebounds but he was 2-of-8 from the field. Other players had a bad night as well with Grant Sherfield doing 2-of-10 and Dexter Dennis had 2-of-11 but he made it up with 8 points and eight rebounds. To beat the Huskies, they can’t be too lazy and the slight sight of weakness will be seen and capitalized.
Players to Watch: E. Stevenson G 15 GP 29 MIN 13.9 PTS 5.4 REB 2.6 AST 1.9 STL 0.4 BLK 1.4 TO 41.7 FG% 76.6 FT% 36.3 3P%, J.

The Huskies managed to bounce back with a win over Tulane after losing two consecutive games. Tyler Polley had the hot hand with 19 points and he also grabbed 11 boards. Christian Vital helped him in the post with 14 points, eight rebounds and two blocks. Alterique Gilbert had an all-around game with 11 points, seven assists and four rebounds while Josh Carlton had 10 points and four boards.
It was a good game that they found their rhythm but they are considered the underdogs in this match even having the home-court advantage. They need more from their role players to give space to Vital and Polley to operate inside. This should be a good test for the team and a morale-boosting one if they manage to pull a victory.
