The Wichita State Shockers also need a win here to get back to a .500 record after losing to Davidson yesterday. The Wichita State Shockers are averaging 70.5 points on 43.9 percent shooting and allowing 75.5 points on 45.5 percent shooting. Markis McDuffie is averaging 20 points and 2.5 rebounds while Samajae Haynes-Jones is averaging 11 points and six assists. Erik Stevenson is the third double-digit scorer and Dexter Dennis is grabbing three rebounds. The Wichita State Shockers are shooting 40.4 percent from beyond the arc and 48.9 percent from the free throw line. The Wichita State Shockers are allowing 33.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32 rebounds per game. The Wichita State Shockers have split their last six non-home games.

The Mountaineers are 10-3-1 ATS in their last 14 games following a ATS loss and 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 Friday games. The Shockers are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 non-conference games, 2-9 ATS in their last 11 Friday games and 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The over is 13-4 in Shockers last 17 overall and the under is 5-1 in Mountaineers last 6 Friday games.

The Appalachian State Mountaineers were badly outplayed yesterday, and it's clear they don't have the horses to hang around with some of the better teams in the country. The Wichita State Shockers aren't as good as they've been in years past, but they're well coached, get after it defensively and usually beat up on the teams they're supposed to beat up on. I'll lay the reasonable chalk here.
