WSU now 2-3 after a loss to a bad Alabama team.
If it wasn’t for Vick going lights out for the last two games, we might be in a similar spot
i wish that some of you hadn’t pissed off a certain conspiracy theorist ( ShoeCo). He would’ve written a novel about Dedric being under MK Ultra mind control, which is why he donked out of his last two games.
I was wondering where Jaybate went…
More good news from last night…
"Wichita State takes embarrassing L
Wichita State hasn’t missed an NCAA tournament since 2011, but the Shockers may have their work cut out for them to make it back to an eighth straight Big Dance. Gregg Marshall’s team was out-rebounded by 11 and shot just 37 percent from the field in a 71-58 loss to visiting Louisiana Tech Tuesday night. The loss marked the first time the Shockers have dropped a home opener since 1995.
Marshall has led WSU to at least 25 wins for nine straight seasons, but the makeup of this team is different. Nine of the 13 players on the Shockers roster are playing Division-I basketball for the first time. That inexperience was on full display in the lopsided loss to a Louisiana Tech team that went 16-17 last season."
Early on I was so impressed with Doke’s improvement. It seemed his awareness, ability to pass when he didn’t have anything and most importantly, his FT stroke looked like a different player. swishing 3 of 4 early. But then he clanked the rest, and important ones too at the end when things were close. He gave a great effort but was just looking gassed at the end and we know how being tired can really effect your shot. Also, some of his 4 fouls were junk calls, but still, he probably should not have been in there in the final minutes. Hope Huddy can keep improving his conditioning because he really looked good early on.
I didn’t get a chance to see any pre-season games, so my early impressions watching the first 10 minutes of this game were dizzying trying to take in all the new stuff.
I know most weren’t impressed here with Moore and his numbers weren’t good - 11 mins, 3 fouls, 1 pt, 1 attempt, no buckets, no assists. Ok that’s not good at all. But for some reason I still had a positive impression. No turnovers, some nice passes and he just looked relaxed early on, maybe not so much later. I think we’ll see good things from him, hopefully this year, but probably next.
Unlike Moore, Dedric’s stats (on an off night even) were impressive. Really excited about watching him blossom under Self for his year with us.
Unlike Dedric’s off night, Grimes was definitely on - 30 mins, 7-14 FGs, 6-10 3s, 4 assists, 1 TO and a steal. Another blossom in Self’s garden of abundance this year.
Mitch filled in well, as he did last year.
For all his minutes and new engagement level, Vick the senior did not impress.
KJ had some nice plays with his brother and I expect to see some more of that later this year, but not a bunch more. Next year though, he could be a stud.
Overall, great game and, once we gel, this team should be a juggernaut.
Another great year to be a jayhawk fan!
