I figured you needed a break from reading all those articles written about Wichita State. So, I threw some gifs together to represent the year so far. Learning Loyola replaced Creighton in the MVC:   Waking up after 3 hours of sleep from staying up for the Midnight tip-off against WKU for the Final Four banner drop:   When I hear Gregg Marshall’s pregame and halftime speeches to the players:   Watching Tekele lock down the best player on every […]

Chadrack Lufile Wichita State Glue Guy

You have probably heard the term “glue guy” when talking college hoops. To me, a glue guy is someone on your team who won’t have crazy stats, but has other intangibles that affect the outcomes of games.

Through the years, especially under Gregg Marshall, Wichita State has seen it’s share of glue guys. Off the top of my head, […]

The new season is officially underway with Wichita State dominating Oklahoma Baptist 73 – 29. Every Shocker saw time on the court, and the exhibition allowed fans to see all of the new players in action. When you beat a team by 44, and hold the opponent to one field goal in the first half, there shouldn’t be much to complain about. However, like the rest of the country, Shocker fans watched a game that had just a little more […]

After a head scratching loss to Evansville, Wichita State has won 4 in a row, which included a win over ranked Creighton. In those four wins, the Shockers had a margin of victory of 12 against Illinois State, 3 against Creighton, 10 against Missouri State, and 34 against Bradley. To say that Wichita State is on fire, is an understatement. I think the fire can be credited to the return of Carl Hall. The ability for this team to have […]

Koch Arena was rockin’ on Saturday as the Shockers prepared to defend their court against #12 ranked Creighton. This is the biggest home game of the year for WSU, and it’s the best rivalry in the MVC. The students, just back from break, waited outside to get their precious spots as close to the floor as possible. The arena was blacked out. This is college basketball at it’s finest. The Shockers were in control for most of the game only […]

Garrett has been training hard to prove he belongs on a professional team. Like most players who graduate from college and played in a D-1 program, he spent his summer showing scouts and GM’s what he was made of. He had multiple work outs with NBA teams prior to the NBA draft, and then played on multiple teams in the NBA’s summer league. He finished out his summer playing with the Boston Celtics, but won’t be playing stateside next year. […]
