    Quinton Rose paced Temple (14-14, 6-9) with 20 points and five steals, and Monty Scott chipped in 14 points off the bench.

    Wichita State reached the 50 percent mark from the field for the first time since its Dec. 29 win over Abilene Christian, hitting 28-of-56, including 9-for-21 from three-point range.

        Temple has a pretty decent center. He’s not super athletic but he is big and will probably give Mo a tough time.

          Maybe. But did you hear Mark Adams assessment of MU last night during the game between Cincy and Temple? He said MU was 6'9 but played like he was 5'9 because Morris had short arms. I don't think MU is 6'9 but he had me thinking about the short arm comment. I still think you got to box out and then go after the ball regardless of how long your arms are. Go Shocks.

            Love Mark Adams but it’s possible he’s got his info mixed up because I’ve heard people also mention that Mo’s wingspan is longer than his height. Someone get the measuring tape!

                  Regardless of arms, we all know Mo plays like a small post, not like a big post. Chandler plays bigger and he's only an inch taller. Speaking of Chandler, is it weird that we have a center that never dunks the ball?

                    PB doesn't have any low post moves, so when he gets the ball, he prefers to face the basket which pulls him farther away for the goal. If he shot the ball better from the perimeter, it would be good, but he doesn't.

                      I believe he’s had a couple of dunk put-backs, but he’s sure no skywalker.

                        No kidding. IPBC got more alley oop dunks in his highschool mix video than he has gotten at WSU. What happen to that IPBC ?

                          Mo has one post move and it's not the least bit polished.

                              This is a game the Shocker cannot afford to take for granted or to overlooks. This a game they need to come ready to play and take care of business. Hopefully, IHCIB will have attitutdes properly adjusted and focused on the job at hand.
