    • Wichita State closes out the month of November and a two-game homestand vs. Richmond Wednesday night at 6:30 p.m. on ESPN+.
    • A win would move the Shockers to 7-1 and would be the best start since 2019-20 when they also started the season 7-1.
    • Wichita State is 14-6 all time when playing on Nov. 29.
    • Wichita State is 1-0 all-time vs. Richmond with the lone meeting coming last season.
    • Richmond is 4-2 this season after back-to-back wins over UNLV and Queens.
    • Wichita State is coming off an 80-67 win over Norfolk State on Wednesday. Wichita State dished out a season-high 20 assists in the contest.

    ALL-TIME SERIES VS. RICHMOND
    • Wednesday's matchup marks just the second all-time meeting between Wichita State and Richmond. The Shockers defeated the Spiders in the only other meeting just over a year ago on Nov. 17, 2022, 56-53, in Richmond.
    • A low-scoring, defensive battle saw Wichita State pick up a huge road win early in the season. The Shockers held Richmond to just 37.7 percent shooting and 8-for-29 from three-point range.
    Jaykwon Walton accounted for 20 of Wichita State's 56 points on a night when only six players found the scoring column.
    James Rojas added 15 and Craig Porter Jr.chipped in 11 points, 9 rebounds and 5 steals. The trio of Walton, Rojas and Porter combined for 46 of the team's 56 points.
    • Isaiah Bigelow posted 16 points and 11 rebounds to lead Richmond.

    A SHOCKER WIN WOULD...
    ... Make them 7-1 and would be the best start since 2019-20 when the Shockers started 7-1.
    ... Make them 5-0 at home this season.
    ... Make them 15-6 all time on Nov. 29.
    ... Give Paul Mills 113 career coaching victories.
    ... Run their record to 1,664-1,246 all time.
    ... Make them 2-0 vs. Richmond all time.

            I know we have a late arriving crowd, but dang, this place is EMPTY. Was hoping this would be the game we'd start seeing an uptick in attendance.

              They are going to need some more appealing promotions. Let a child in for $5 with a paid adult ticket. Start rebuilding the fan base. Children are good for concessions.

                          I didn't figure it would get much better till after Christmas.

                              Decent crowd where we're shooting. Amazing start to the game. And holeee... they're letting the band play.
