The hype surrounding Wichita State senior guards Ron Baker and Fred VanVleet has been soaring this off-season. The closer we get to the season opener against Hawaii Pacific, the frequency with which national articles mentioning the pair are cropping up has increased.

Kerry Miller of Bleacher Report released a list of his “Under-the-Radar Contenders for College Basketball Player of the Year in 2015-16” and had Baker as his 5th choice. In addition, College Basketball Talk on NBC Sports’ Rob Dauster released his list of top 100 college basketball players, and Wichita State had two players in the top 20. Fred VanVleet comes in at #17 and Ron Baker at #13.

Another short article to mention is Rush The Court’s coverage of the 30 most compelling moments from last season. Wichita State beating Kansas in the Round of 32 in the NCAA Tournament was listed at #17.
