Sporting News released their preseason All-Americans, and two Wichita State Shockers made the list. Ron Baker and Fred VanVleet made the lists, respectively.

Baker, first team All-American and VanVleet as a second team.

The Shock duo has been a staple in Wichita since their freshman year, when they rocked it out to a 35-1 season and another that went to a Final Four.

Baker will continue to grow as the first option for the Shockers. However, with VanVleet beside him this season, Wichita State may have one of the best back courts in the nation.

Baker averaged 14.7 points and VanVleet averaged 13.6 points.

Wichita State begins their season Nov. 13 against Charleston Southern.
