What to Know
The Wichita State Shockers and the Tulsa Golden Hurricane are set to clash at 3 p.m. ET March 10 at Dickies Arena in the first round of the American Athletic Conference Tournament.
The East Carolina Pirates typically have all the answers at home, but this past Saturday Wichita State proved too difficult a challenge. The Shockers beat East Carolina 70-62. Wichita State got double-digit scores from four players: guard Ricky Council IV (20), guard Craig Porter Jr. (15), forward Morris Udeze (12), and guard Tyson Etienne (12). Porter Jr. had some trouble finding his footing against Tulsa when the two teams last met earlier in the regular season, so this was a step in the right direction.
Meanwhile, the UCF Knights typically have all the answers at home, but on Sunday Tulsa proved too difficult a challenge. The Golden Hurricane skirted by the Knights 73-72 thanks to a clutch half-court bomb from forward Jeriah Horne as the clock expired. Tulsa can attribute much of their success to Horne, who shot 5-for-11 from downtown and finished with 21 points and nine rebounds, and guard Darien Jackson, who had 22 points.
The Shockers were able to grind out a solid victory over Tulsa, winning 72-62. Will Wichita State repeat their success, or does Tulsa have a better game plan this time around? We’ll find out soon enough.
