This has not been a good start to the season for Wichita State but there is still a ton of time to turn it around.
The opposite is true for UNLV which has exceed expectations so far.
UNLV Running Rebels:
It is not quite old times but things are looking good in Sin City. The Rebels are off to a good start with their lone loss to UCLA by just a bucket.
In their seven wins they have quality victories over opponents Baylor and Indiana. This is another great chance to build their profile and they could be catching the Shockers at the right time.
UNLV was hoping for more from sophomore Patrick McCaw but this is probably beyond their wildest expectations. He has doubled his freshman average to 18ppg.
Frosh big Stephen Zimmerman is also delivering. He is averaging 10/9 and will enjoy the fact that the Shockers don’t have much beef inside.
UNLV definitely has enough talent to ride into Koch Arena and get the W. They are playing really well right now.
Wichita State Shockers:
The run of the Shockers was supposed to last a little longer than this. Thanks to their fantastic senior backcourt being around for one more season.
Instead they have already suffered a season’s worth of losses, in part due to the fact that All American candidate Fred Van Vleet missing several games.
Without him in the lineup Ron Baker has responded, increasing his scoring to 17ppg but he is definitely much more effective as part of a duo.
For this one Van Vleet is back but it looks like they will be missing their top inside player Anton Grady – second leading scorer and leading rebounder. They do not have a lot inside to begin with.
That puts extra pressure on Van Vleet. Even though this game is at home he may need to put on a masterful performance.
The Shockers do not often lose at home so even though they are not at full strength look for them to be tough in front of their home crowd.
If they need someone other than Baker or Van Vleet to step up look to big man Shaquille Morris. He is off back to back games in double figures and should play more minutes than normal in this one.

There is a little too much respect for the Shockers built into this one. The over looks good too.
