Wichita State Shockers Basketball Schedule

The Wichita State Shockers have been the darlings of college basketball the past few seasons, beginning with their unexpected run through Gonzaga, Ohio State, Pittsburgh, and La Salle to the Final Four in 2013 and continuing into the 2013-2014 season when the Shockers entered the 2014 NCAA Tournament undefeated. Despite entering the Tournament at 34-0 the Shockers fell to eventual national runners-up Kentucky in the Round of 32 in what proved to be one of the best games of the Big Dance. It will not be easy for the Shockers to run through the regular season and Missouri Valley Conference Tournament undefeated again, but they do have several key returning players along with some big time recruits who will help the Shockers maintain their status as one of the best teams in the country. This year's Wichita State team will be determined to make it back to the NCAA Tournament and avoid an early exit so you can be sure they will be working hard all season to pile up some big wins.

Wichita State will enter the Missouri Valley Conference with giant targets on their backs and will need to be prepared to take the best shot of all of the teams in the conference who will be looking to knock off last year's conference champs. The Missouri Valley Conference is annually one of the most hotly contested conferences in all of college hoops and the Shockers will have their hands full as they go up against all of the best teams in the conference including Indiana State, Northern Iowa, Missouri State, Illinois State, Southern Illinois, and more. Life in the Missouri Valley Conference is never easy but Wichita State has the talent and experience to dominate once again, and perhaps accomplish the unprecedented by making it through conference play undefeated for the second year in a row. The Shockers will look for support from all of their biggest fans when they take on their conference rivals at Charles Koch Arena. Tickets to see the Shockers play at home in Wichita have been selling out quickly for years so be sure to get yours from StubHub as soon as possible so you can help cheer Wichita State on to another big win.

Wichita State Shockers Basketball History

Wichita State first began playing intercollegiate basketball in 1906 when the university was known as Fairmount College. Over the years the Shockers have come to be recognized as one of the premier teams in the Missouri Valley Conference and lately have been making quite a name for themselves on the national stage. Current head coach Gregg Marshall has proven to be one of the best in all of NCAA basketball and he continues to get the most out of all of the players on his team. The Shockers lost star Cleanthony Early, who was drafted by the New York Knicks, but will be returning second leading scorer Ron Baker as well as leading assist man Fred VanVleet so the future remains bright for the program. All of the returning players will enter the 2014-2015 season with a chip on their shoulder after a tough loss to Kentucky sent them home from the 2014 NCAA Tournament earlier than they had hoped. Expect big things from the Shockers this season as they continue to establish themselves as one of the best college basketball programs in the country.

The Experience

Attending a top college basketball game is one of the best experiences to be found in sports. Many of the top student athletes in the world take the court in college basketball, when this is combined with some of the most passionate fans in all of sports there is an atmosphere in the arena that cannot be found anywhere else. When you set foot in Charles Kich Arena for a Wichita State Shockers home basketball game this will all be clear. As the teams set up for opening jump ball the fans get on their feet and loudly cheer for their alma mater and hometown favorites. The game continues full of end to end action, big time shots, and clutch defensive stops. All of a sudden the clock is winding down in the second half and the two sides are wrapped up in yet another tight contest. Your palms get sweaty with each trip down the floor and each time a player from your favorite team lets loose a shot you hold your breath until the ball tickles the twine. This continues until the final buzzer when the Shockers' side erupts after another big win and their fans exit of the arena in jubilation. The moment you leave Charles Koch Arena you will want to immediately start planning your next trip to the venue to cheer on the Shockers.
