        • If these guys can get the chemistry down, the pieces are there.

          And by 'get the chemistry down' I mean get the EFF out of Cotton's way.

              I agree, he's been a monster overseas and you have to be able to score in this thing.

            • If this team has enough "memory" and a sufficient amount of "refresher" time to impose the Shocker Defense, they will win the whole thing. Without the "D", we're just another fun team to watch.

                I don't know if you heard, but Tekele Cotton is on the team.

                • All these guys are used to being "the guy" either in college or on their pro teams. It will be strange for some of them to be bench players. I'm most looking forward to seeing how much they've improved since college.

                  • Got my tickets this morning. This is going to be a hell of a time!

                      I haven't watched any "overseas" video, but do they play defense or is it more like the regular season NBA? Hope my Shocker favs have not "forgotten"

                        Prob more like the NBA, although the american players are typically the better players on the teams

                        They play defense over there.

                    • Ticket sales to date for each of the 8 regionals. The Shocks total should continue to grow now that single session tickets are available and if the Shocks can make the championship game the Wichita regional is going to put up some relatively huge numbers.

                        Amazes me that "basketball crazy" memphis hasn't sold 4k in tickets yet.... This is in the middle of summer with no other major sports going on there.

                          Might want to do some checking on who is playing at that site. Our site has the 3 biggest schools in the state at it with two college basketball powerhouses and a third team with a big, loyal following. Memphis has literal crap at their site. This has more to do with who is playing Wichita that people want to watch. No self respecting Memphis fan is going to want to pay to go see Earl Barron and Adonis Thompson play.

                          The Wichita site was outselling others before the announcement was made about where teams were placed.
