BRACKET REFRESHER: WICHITA STATE

NCAA Tournament | All 65 Team Capsules

By Joel Welser

jwelser@collegehoops.net

 

2006 NCAA Tournament Capsule: Wichita State

 

Wichita State Shockers (24-8)

Missouri Valley: 1st,14-4

RPI: 24 AP: na

Big Wins: at Bradley (86-76), at Missouri State (68-62), SIU (71-63)

Bad Losses: at SIU (49-58), Northern Iowa (61-75), at Creighton (55-57)

Last NCAA Appearance: 1988, First Round

 

Top Players:

Paul Miller, Sr, C, 13.0 ppg, 6.5 rpg

Sean Ogirri, So, G, 11.9 ppg, 2.8 apg, 6.3 rpg

Kyle Wilson, Jr, F, 11.2 ppg, 5.7 rpg

P.J. Couisnard, So, G, 10.2 ppg, 3.0 apg

 

How about that for a rebuilding year?  The bad losses arenít really bad losses at all and this team was one point away from beating Illinois on a neutral court in November.  Another win at Arch Madness would have been nice, but nearly two weeks of rest isnít a bad deal either.  Like most MVC teams, the defense is exceptional.  The Shockers do everything quite well, but they excel on the glass. Mark Turgeonís squad ranks in the top 20 nationally in that category led by Paul Miller, P.J. Couisnard and Kyle Wilson.  The free-throw shooting is solid at 72.2% and, despite the youth in the backcourt, Wichita State turns the ball over only 13 times per contest.

 

Seed: 7

First Round: Seton Hall

 

Joel's Likely Finish: Second Round

CHN's Official Prediction: Second Round
