Shockers to scrimmage South Dakota State

Wichita State landed an interesting opponent for its men’s basketball scrimmage on Oct. 28 at Koch Arena. The Shockers will practice against South Dakota State, an NCAA Tournament team in 2012 with star power in guard Nate Wolters.

Wolters averaged 21.1 points and 5.9 assists as a junior and is regarded as a potential NBA Draft pick. ¬†Unfortunately, the scrimmages are closed to the public and media. We will have to rely on second-hand descriptions of Wolters and how he matches up with the Shockers. It would certainly be interesting to watch. It’s too bad this isn’t a regular-season matchup in Koch Arena.

Besides Wolters, the Jackrabbits return three starters from a team that went 27-8 and lost to Baylor (68-60) in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. They won at Washington (92-73) with Wolters scoring 34 points and handing out seven assists without a turnover.
