▪  If things go as expected, Wichita State’s newcomers will plenty of run on Sunday and that is the best outcome for the Shockers. As a group, the newcomers played well in two home games and stepped back a bit in South Dakota. They had four days to work on their mistakes and today they get back on the court. WSU can win a lot of games with its veterans carrying the load. There will come a time when the freshmen and transfers must make a play or give the Shockers 15 productive minutes.

▪  Newman is off to a strong start with wins over Washburn and Emporia State. The mark to beat is making more baskets than committing turnovers, a feat neither New Mexico State or Memphis could pull off. The Shockers forced 44 turnovers in its 2-0 start and allowed 36 baskets.
