Wichita State Shockers basketball notes:
How about that for a rebuilding year? The bad losses aren’t really bad losses at all and this team was one point away from beating Illinois on a neutral court in November. Another win at Arch Madness would have been nice, but nearly two weeks of rest isn’t a bad deal either. Like most MVC teams, the defense is exceptional. The Shockers do everything quite well, but they excel on the glass. Mark Turgeon’s squad ranks in the top 20 nationally in that category led by Paul Miller, P.J. Couisnard and Kyle Wilson. The free-throw shooting is solid at 72.2% and, despite the youth in the backcourt, Wichita State turns the ball over only 13 times per contest.
