Bob Lutz: 10 best Shockers of the Marshall era

Quote:Gregg Marshall is well into his eighth season as Wichita State’s basketball and the hits just keep coming.

Marshall stresses team play and unselfishness, so if you’re basing a Top 10 list of Shockers during the Marshall era on scoring alone, you’re going to have a difficult time.

Marshall’s best players are complete. They can do a variety of things well and they defend. If they don’t defend under Marshall, they find it hard to get on the floor.

So what does a Top 10 list of players who primarily played for Marshall at Wichita State look like? Here’s one man’s version:

I think Tekele should be ranked a little higher. I think people are going to realize how important he is next year when he's gone.

[Image: 6fJ41sO.jpg?1] --- Showtime will follow Wichita State basketball for all-access series

Quote:Showtime will feature Wichita State men’s basketball, and three other schools, in a five-episode, all-access series that begins in February.

A seven-person production crew will follow the team in practices, road trips and around campus through Selection Sunday. The first episode of “The Road to March Madness” is on Feb. 17 and it continues weekly until March 16. The first four one-hour episodes are at 9 p.m. on Tuesdays with the final one on Monday after the NCAA Tournament bracket is announced.

Showtime will also feature Oklahoma, Maryland and Notre Dame. Maryland is coached by former WSU coach Mark Turgeon. Oklahoma is coached by former Kansas State star and coach Lon Kruger.

WSU associate athletic director John Brewer compared the series to HBO’s “Hard Knocks,” a behind-the-scenes look at NFL teams.

I think it's really cool that we were picked. This should be fun for the players and give the program some exposure in a market that may not know much about them.

  5 Questions the Wichita State Shockers Must Answer In Conference Play

[Image: FZ51MPF.png?1] --- 5 Questions the Wichita State Shockers Must Answer In Conference Play

Quote:Another season of MVC domination has ensued for coach Gregg Marshall and his Wichita State Shockers. With 11 games still remaining on the conference slate, Wichita State sits at 7-0 in league play and 17-2 overall through their first 19 games of 2014-15. Can the Shockers go undefeated in conference play for the second straight season? It’s just one of the questions Marshall’s team must answer before NCAA Tournament play gets underway in March.

The article asks some questions about shot-blocking, newcomers, potential #2 seed, and running the tables in the Valley. I think a couple of those questions are being answered as Shaq and Brown and maybe Kelly now are emerging as solid contributors off the bench and our shot-blocking has gone way up over the last few games thanks to Shaq and Ron.
