Wichita State vs. LSU

The Shockers are doing their shoot-around in a cold CenturyTel Center in Bossier City, La. The ice under the floor and the empty arena make for a less-than-ideal climate. Most of the coaches and players are wearing an extra layer – long-sleeved shirts, sweats or jackets. It’s often cool in arenas for these sessions, but this is several degrees worst than most.

The upper bowl is curtained off, expected for one section, and the crowd estimate is around 3,000 for tonight.

Heights star Perry Ellis retains WSU on his list of schools. There are some heavy hitters on that list and there is a long way to go before the junior forward makes his decision. At this point, it’s an indication WSU coaches are doing the right things to stay in a difficult recruiting game.
