Last year, North Carolina started its season by winning the Maui Invitational. The Tar Heels finished the season strong, too. This year’s Invitational favorite, Wichita State, begins play against the California Golden Bears.
Wichita State Shockers
Wichita State was voted eighth in the national poll to open the season. The Shockers had another dominant season in the Missouri Valley last season before losing to Kentucky in the NCAA Tournament after drawing a 10-seed that many saw as unjust.
This will be Wichita’s first season in the American Athletic Conference, where it becomes the immediate favorite. The Shockers will not be a newcomer for the rest of the establishment to beat up on.
That’s because they return just about everybody from a year ago and still have their beloved Gregg Marshall on the sidelines. Quite simply, he’s one of the best coaches in the country and is the main reason why Wichita State is a powerhouse program.
Landry Shamet recovered from a broken leg just in time to play in the first game and he’s looked just fine thus far. Junior forward Markus McDuffie is still on the mend from his broken leg and won’t be back until next month. Until then, the Shockers have plenty of experienced depth to more than make up for him.
California Golden Bears
Cal has had some good teams and good individual players in the last decade but this year’s team isn’t getting a lot of attention as one that might come onto the national scene.
Cuonzo Martin left to take the Head Coach position at the University of Washington and Wyking Jones inherited the job after serving as his assistant since 2015.
Jones is a big personality and has some good assistant experience but this is his first gig as the top guy. His debut didn’t go well when the Bears fell to smaller Cal State Riverside but he’s since rebounded to coach his team to two straight victories against Cal Poly and Wofford. Junior guard Don Coleman is averaging over 26 points per game through the first three.
