Lady Shockers set to host SIU on senior night

On Saturday night the Wichita State Shockers will honor their senior players as they host Southern Illinois at Koch Arena.

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.

Jody Adams' team got off to the best start in school history for the women's team and currently sits at 12-2 atop the Missouri Valley Conference standings.

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.
