Alabama A&M: The Bulldogs haven't played since a Dec. 7 loss to Tennessee State (coached by former Shocker John Cooper) 74-61. A&M made 4 of 20 three-pointers in the loss. Freshman F DeMarquelle Tabb came off the bench to score 13 points and grab six rebounds. He averages 9.5 points and 7.0 rebounds.... The Bulldogs are a poor shooting team _ 39.2 percent from the field and 28 percent from three-point range.... Hester scored 15 points in a 76-50 loss at Alabama.
Wichita State: Murry is leading another good free-throw shooting team. He is 27 of 30 from the line, 90 percent. WSU is shooting 75 percent after last season's team set a record by making 74.6 percent. Equally important, Murry is driving to the basket and drawing fouls. He made 7 of 9 in Friday's win over Nicholls State. "Free throws are a big part of the game, and if you shoot well from the line, usually the team wins the game," Murry said. "I just want to be that player. I've got my confidence up."
