(1-0) Providence Friars vs. Wichita State Shockers (0-1)
Providence is in the Big East and with little fanfare they are expected to be pretty good. They have a solid lead dog and a return to the Tournament seems likely.
Wichita State looks like it is in for a rough season this year and it might have already begun with a loss to Louisiana Tech. There is just not as much to work with here as there has been in the past.
Alpha Diallo is a strong wing player. He can score and rebound (leading returner in both categories as well as assists). He is a Big East first teamer which is a good place to start.
Speaking of first teamers David Duke is on the all newcomer team and looks like a smooth wing that should be able to contribute right away.
Providence always seems to have some size and some beef and this season looks no different. They have four players 6’8″ or taller and even some wings who are strong enough to play inside.
Ed Cooley does a good job getting his players to improve every season and even though Diallo and Duke are a good place to start there are other who should emerge.
Wichita State Shockers
We are so used to the Shockers being good. Last year they won 25 game after moving into the AAC and then losyt in the Tournament and it was kind of shocking. That is how good they have been.
Last year is was supposed to be all about the duo of Landry Shamet and Markis McDuffie. The problem is they only really got the former and now he is in the NBA.
McDuffie was a big time recruit and has been a contributor but now they need him to be a star. Athletically it is all there but we have to see it in consistency and production.
If McDuffie were more of a known quantity the prospects might look better but in addition to hoping their best players starts playing like it they need others, many, to step up.
