Wichita State Head Coach Greg Marshall Discusses Knicks Forward Cleanthony Early

We caught up with Gregg Marshall to discuss promising small forward Cleanthony Early. Many analysts pegged Early as a pick just outside the lottery, but he slipped all the way to the Knicks at pick No. 34. Phil Jackson must have liked the Wichita State product. How does Early’s college coach feel about him?

MVC teams look to close gap with Wichita State

DES MOINES, Iowa -- Wichita State kept the Missouri Valley Conference in the spotlight last season with a 35-0 start, the best ever in Division I. The Shockers did so at the expense of nine league rivals who didn't even come close to an NCAA tournament bid. Wichita State went 21-0 against league opponents in 2013-14 and 18 of those victories were by at least 10 points. Though...

Wichita State working to get Corey Henderson Jr. prepared for backup point guard role

One of the remarkable things about Wichita State’s 35-1 record last season was the Shockers’ lack of a backup point guard. With the loss of backup point guard D.J. Bowles before the 2013-14 season due to a heart condition, Wichita State had to rely on sophomore Fred VanVleet to carry a heavy amount of minutes as the team’s only point guard. VanVleet averaged 31.7 minutes per...

Wichita State coach taking road less traveled to top

ST. LOUIS -- To understand Gregg Marshall is to understand that he's a product of his past. The leader of unbeaten Wichita State wasn't born into coaching with a silver spoon. He didn't learn at the knee of Bob Knight or Mike Krzyzewski, or lean on a resume line that might read "UCLA" or "Kentucky" to climb the coaching ladder. No, Marshall was a skinny...

Shockers gearing up for 'that one last tournament,' this time with even bigger head of steam

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- New year. Same song. "What's different now?" Gregg Marshall asks, repeating the question. The Wichita State basketball coach pauses, and offers this: "Well, for the first time in 27 years, we have our name already up there as an automatic qualifier. That's the first time in 27 years that Shocker Nation has had that, and it's fun. It...

Wichita State’s Conference Title Shirts Don’t Look Quite Right (Photo)

Wichita State’s regular season was perfect. Its conference championship T-shirts were not. The No. 2-ranked Shockers toppled Indiana State on Sunday in the Missouri Valley Conference title game to become the first team since UNLV in 1991 to enter the NCAA tournament with an undefeated record. The Wichita State players were presented with the typical championship swag as the cut...

Why Does Everyone Hate Wichita State?

    The Wichita State Shockers just won their 30th game in a row to move to, yes, 30-0 on the season. Throw everything else in this post out the window; 30-0 is a great record. A team doesn't get to 30-0 without being very good, but it doesn't get to 30-0 without luck as well. Wichita State had some luck in close games, as do all teams who win close games...

Wichita State Basketball: Shockers Don’t Pass The Eye Test; Not Final Four Contenders

The fourth ranked Wichita State Shockers are one of only two remaining undefeated teams in the country. #1 Syracuse is the other unbeaten team. Through 26 games, the Shockers have cruised, and only three of those wins came by less than 6 points. Going by the statistics, this team is as legit as their record would suggest. Four Shockers are averaging more than 10 points per game,...
