Mountain West-Missouri Valley Challenge - Charles Koch Arena

Complete Coverage >


TCU is trying to overcome from their previous loss to Texas Tech, which would have been their best win in a couple of years.  Wichita State is from the Missouri Valley Conference and this game is part of the MVC/MWC challenge, and the Shockers are not a push over.  Their best win is against Iowa and their only loss is to Pitt.  This game should be a slugfest, because of the Schockers defense that is only giving up in the mid 50's.  TCU is not a scoring machine but they get in the 70 point range per game, so something will give.

TCU has a few big time scorers and should be able to surpass what Wichita gives up.  Zvonko Buljan, Ronnie Moss, and Edvinas Ruzgas are all studs and combine for 46 points.  However, if any of those three are stopped then Witchita State will be able to take care of TCU.
