Wichita State basketball coach Gregg Marshall put senior J.R. Simon on scholarship Sunday at a team party.
Simon, a guard from Oklahoma City, came to Wichita State as a walk-on and played 64 games over the past three seasons.
A scholarship opened up when Peyton Allen left school earlier this fall and Marshall said, in a video, that the NCAA gave WSU a waiver to use the scholarship this year.
