NCAA Championship Wichita State Shockers

Basketball - NCAAB - 03 Apr 19:00

Wichita State Shockers have the team to make the final four this season. They are returning all starters (Landry Shamet, Markis McDuffie, Zach Brown, Shaq Morris & Conner Frankamp) for the season, while only back up point guard Daishon Smith (4.8 ppg) graduated but he should easily be replaced by Samajae Haynes-Jones. Sophomore point guard Landry Shamet (11.4 ppg) was impressive last season as a freshman and will definitely improve here. Shamet shot 43.9% from 3-pointers. Wichita were ranked #8 on 3-pointers percentage last season. At defense, they ranked #4 in field goal percentage and #19 in 3-pointers defense. Wichita has a great man leading them. Coach Gregg Marshall has been with them for five seasons now, under him Wichita made the final four in 2013, finished undefeated in regular season and No.1 seed in 2014, made sweet 16 in 2015. With their returning starters, this might just be the year Marshall takes them to the title.

Wichita will start the season though without Shamet & McDuffie as they are both recovering from fracture surgeries. McDuffie return is unknown but likely be back by December. Shamet who's surgery was in July, is hopeful to return in November. Sophomore Guard Austin Reaves is also out. Wichita will probably start the season with Shaq Morris at center, Conner Frankamp at shooting guard, Zach Brown at small forward, Darral Wills at power forward while Samajae Haynes-Jones will run the offense. I think this will help Wichita bench players get more minutes before March when the NCAA tournament begins. And by then they should have a full squad ready.

Wichita have left the Missouri Valley Conference and joined a more competitive American Athletic Conference which would ideally boost their seeding situation when the selection for NCAA tournament is done next year.
