Wichita State forward Gabe Blair did some of the practice work today. He didn’t scrimmage much, but he did jump into drills and walk-through stuff. WSU coach Gregg Marshall said there is a chance he will play Saturday against Southern Illinois. The bigger concern is how his bruised left thigh will react. WSU definitely wants him healthy for St. Louis. Blair suffered a relapse after playing against Utah State and didn’t play against Bradley.
SIU is listing guard Kevin Dillard, its leading scorer, as questionable. Dillard missed Tuesday’s loss to Creighton with a sprained ankle.
