The Buccaneers are picked eighth in the Big South. Martin was the conference's Defensive Player of the Year in 2011....

Wichita State: Senior G Toure Murry practiced Friday and Saturday and Marshall expects him to play today. Murry suffered bruised ribs and a partially collapsed lung on Oct. 27. He did not play in Tuesday's exhibition game. "I'm pretty sure he wants to play — how well, how much, I don't know," Marshall said.... Marshall asked his players to watch Friday's game. Those who did surely won't overlook today's opponent. "I told them about Coach Radebaugh, and that he knows our system," Marshall said. "They really push the ball well in transition. They drove it. They rebounded the ball very well."... The Shockers haven't lost a home opener since the 1995-96 season or a season opener since the 2001-02 season.... Marshall said no decisions on redshirting players have been made. "I really don't have to unless I play them," he said. "We've had some conversations. You'll know they're not redshirting once they get in that game."
