Quote:Wichita State started the week with a 15-2 record and ranked No. 7 in the nation. Now, after back-to-back losses at SMU and Houston, the Shockers are left wondering what exactly has gone wrong.
...

Two-game losing streaks are never fun for a top-10 team. Still, if Wichita State merely plays to its potential on defense and gets McDuffie up to speed, this group can look a lot more like the "old" Wichita State in a hurry. Keep an eye on the Shockers.

I'm going to submit that the Shockers spent too much time admiring their pretty shooting and their pretty rankings and forgot what got them to this point, which was angry play and ugly defense. Last week they bumped into a couple teams who were hungry as hell and jealous of the Shockers success. They were willing to trade their lives for the win hoping it would make their season. We ended up being out-angried which has been sobering to say the least to most of the knowledgeable Shocker fans I've talked to.

The Shox seem to have temporarily lost their edge. They're too white collar now and need to trade in their Diner's Club cards for lunch buckets and get back to eating Big Macs instead of boeuf bourguignon.

Discuss.


Or not.

There is nothing wrong with WSU hoops.

The answer is really simple: The American conference is a lot harder than the MVC. Top to bottom it isnt even close. For the record we tried to tell you this before conference play started and you laughed at us and thought it was all a big joke. The AAC teams are punching you guys in the mouth and you
have lost games you werent expecting to lose. No need to be sad and wondering what’s happened. Listen next time.

Spoiler alert: more loses coming...

Good grief. How many times are Wichita fans going to start the same thread?

Nothing wrong with Wichita. Same cast as last year. Sooner or later, maybe they will realize the only change was the conference.

RE: What's wrong with Wichita State Basketball?
Would anyone like to provide a list of MVC games last year that we would have lost if the same caliber team showed up during an AAC game?

Nobody needs to.

Get it in your thick heads...the AAC is a high major conference. You arent going to just shown up and go 17-1 or whatever like you are used to. You guys are used to having a lot more talent than the other teams in the conference. The fact is you don’t now. Talent is going be pretty even from your team vs other AAC teams and you’re going to have to put in effort and focus every game and that isnt something your team is used to having to do night in and night out. Sure you did it when you had a big out of conference game or ncaa game but now you have to do it every game and there’s a big difference there. Cincinnati learn that when we joined the Big East.
