Wichita State wrapped up the Puerto Rico Tip-Off this past Sunday losing in overtime to Temple, 74 to 78. Wichita State’s offense sputtered nearly the entire game, and couldn’t find a way to consistently score the ball. We scored in spurts and became cold during long stretches of the game. A constant trend all tournament was a lack of solid play from our veteran guards. Kyles started slow but ended with 11 points in a decent showing from his poor […]

Wichita State lost in the semi-final of the Puerto Rico Tip-Off to Alabama tonight. Wichita State never lead by more than 3, and were behind most of the game. The game wasn’t as close as I thought it would be, but Alabama will be the most athletic team Wichita State faces all year. The Crimson Tide relied heavily on the play of Tony Mitchell and JaMychal Green. Mitchell had 26 points and 8 boards, while Green had a double-double with […]

Wichita State opened up play in the Puerto Rico Tip-Off by beating Colorado 67-58. The Shockers were kept out from the post through the majority of each half, but worked it inside toward the end of both halves. Colorado played very tough defense, but would get worn down through the first 10 to 13 minutes of each half. Once the Shockers developed their inside game, things took off fairly well for the team. The Shockers will play #15 Alabama tomorrow […]

I had the pleasure of getting my hands on a pair of these brand new Wichita State basketball shorts. They are only sold over at www.retrocollegecuts.com and not only do they sell Wichita State retro shorts, but five other teams at the moment. The Shocker faithful are lucky to be included in the initial six teams for these shorts. They are in the style of the great 1981 Shocker team, but I will say that they’re not as short as […]

I’ve developed a friendly relationship with the fellas over at AllBuffs.com which is a hybrid of ShockerHoops and ShockerNet, it is a blog site as well as a message board. It is one of the best fan boards I have seen, and definitely one of the friendliest fan sites I have ever been to. Especially considering we play each other in the first game of the Puerto Rico Tip-Off, some sites might get nasty with rival fans. One of the […]

In Wichita State’s first game at Koch Arena this season, albeit an exhibition that doesn’t count, the Shockers won 82-43 and there never was any doubt that the outcome would be different. The sole purpose of the evening was to get some young players some valuable minutes. ¬†An exhibition game does not count towards their record, but also doesn’t count in games played for the players either. This is huge because if a coach is evaluating talent and picking and […]
