    Your take was SPOT on. You might be the new Nostradamus.

    What kind of help did we get for the board going from 8-3 to 8-11?

    Lord help this board if we go from 9-2 to 9-9. We have been pissy enough over the last 3+ years. Let's not keep adding to it.

    Our first 2 games are 2 teams that fall into the 3rd to 8th categories too. N. Texas lost their talented pg to K State and their coach moved on. If I recall they beat us last time we played them. Temple there is a toss up. If the Shocks could squeeze out a 2-0 start, it would be helpful.

    Some opinions on AAC Conference play.

    FAU and Memphis have first 2 slots covered.

    WSU will probably land between 5th to 8th. out of 14 teams. I'm sticking with my early 5th place prediction because this Season does not overwhelm me with the observance of the AAC Non Conference games.

    With the addition of Cortes and DeGray, our depth chart will improve once we get the new recipe developed on team unity on minutes needed per player per game to be successful. Tulane, SMU, N. Texas, WSU, UAB, will all probably land somewhere between 3rd to 8th slots.

    My main concerns are whether the dismal shooting % can be improved with more inside/ out play than we have been doing. Playing FAU and Memphis both twice is not good. The improvements of X. Bell and Q. Ballard are encouraging.

    Our foes will be focusing defensively often on Colby Rogers who should still do real well in this Conference. Working our offense through Kenny P. Inside will be a key along with the right players shooting 3 pointers which is not our strength with this team. I still hope we spinkle in some strategic zone mixes which might help.

    If the Shocks can improve to 10-8 this Season, keep all of our best players here next Season, and fill in the blanks with key portal players for next Season, watch out! The 2 high school player additions we added are impressive.

    GO SHOCKS!!!

    Was glancing at AAC Conference team stats as we approach Conference play.

    Good news. WSU Rebounds per game WSU 1st .412, blocks per game WSU 3rd at 4.7.

    News: WSU FG% 9TH, 3pt. % 9th Ft% 9th assist per game 12th, steals per game 13th.

    Ken Pom 1. FAU 10th. 2. Memphis 33rd. 3. SMU 52. 4, N. Tex. 5. Tulane 111. 6. WSU 117

    Non Con Record WSU 6TH at 8-4 and the odds demand 8-5 after game with KU later today

    FAU is cashing in on last year. Plus, their barn only seats 2900.

    The Wichita State name must carry a fair amount of weight. Just finished watching FAU play Charleston. On a whim I decided to check ticket availability. Tickets for the WSU vs KU ballgame remain and start at $50. Tickets for the WSU vs FAU at their place remain, but start at $53. Yikes! I expect a raucous crowd.

    It is. You didn’t specify that you were referring to KenPom. KenPom at this point in the season is a mix of preseason projections (which fall off gradually during the season) and this season’s results. Not just focused on one game where a team under or over performed.
