Wichita State starts its full schedule of basketball practices on Friday. Here is what happened over the summer:

▪  Bob Lutz: Gregg Marshall talks newcomers, scheduling and the unthinkable.

▪  Rashard Kelly takes advantage of summer conditioning and workouts and might be WSU’s most improved player.

▪  Fred VanVleet gets on up and up.

▪  Shockers newcomers come to college ready to play hard.

▪  ESPN’s Fran Fraschilla loved Ron Baker’s Rambo style at the Pan Am Games.

▪  NBA scouts got a good look at Baker this summer.

▪  Anton Grady soaks up Wichita State’s attitude in his early days with the Shockers.

▪  Wichita State may allow Grady to highlight different parts of his game.
