Long, strange trip

The Shockers usually fly chartered planes on most road trips.

Now you know why. They left on a commercial flight out of Wichita on Thursday morning. It did not go well.

A mechanical problem delayed the flight and, as seasoned travelers know, once one flight is delayed the whole trip can off the rails. The traveling party of 51 went to Dallas, where the players, coaches, managers, administrators and family split into three groups to fly to Los Angeles. They spent Thursday night in a Los Angeles hotel before leaving on Friday, 22 hours behind schedule, in three planes to get to Honolulu.

Coach Gregg Marshall called the experience like traveling on a “Greyhound (bus) in the air.”

Once in Hawaii, everything went smoothly. The Shockers practiced on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday, they swam with dolphins and ate dinner on the beach. A trip to Pearl Harbor is scheduled for Wednesday.

Shockers hold at No. 11

WSU remains No. 11 in the Associated Press and USA Today coaches polls released Monday.

The Shockers received 966 points in the AP poll, up from 959. In the coaches poll, they have 451 points, up from 439.

WSU is ranked in the AP poll for a school-record 27th straight week. The Shockers spent 20 straight weeks in the rankings during the 1963-64 and 1964-65 seasons.

Northern Iowa returned to the AP top 25 at No. 23 after dropping out for a week. The Panthers debuted at No. 24 in the coaches poll.

Tuesday’s games

George Washington 77, Ohio 49 — Kethan Savage scored 18 points and GW held Ohio to 15 second-half points. GW out-rebounded Ohio 44-28. Kevin Larsen led the Bobcats with 15 points.

Colorado 82, DePaul 68— Askia Booker scored 27 points, making all 14 of his fouls shots, and handed out six assists. The Buffaloes (7-3) forced 18 turnovers and outscored the Demons (6-5) by 11 points at the foul line. Tommy Hamilton scored 16 points and grabbed 12 rebounds for DePaul, which went 6 for 27 from the foul line.

Hawaii 66, Nebraska 58 — Hawaii led 34-23 at halftime and used a press to hold off the Huskers.
