Look for Chynna Turner to have a big game. Earlier this season Turner scored a then season-high 22 points in the Shockers 72-59 win in Carbondale. Alex Harden had 15 points and 7 assists in that game for the Shockers.
Wichita State is one of just 6 schools nationally to have both their men's and women's teams in first place in their conference. Montana (Big Sky), Akron (MAAC-East Div.), South Dakota St. (Summit), Middle Tennessee St. (Sun Belt-East), and Gonzaga (WCC) are the other five.
The Shockers truly shine in their play off the bench. In their latest win against Evansville, Wichita State outscored the Purple Aces 31-1 off the bench. Overall WSU's bench has outscored its opponent's 584-344.
Saturday's matchup between the Shockers and Salukis will tip off at 7:05 pm.
