Playing without one of their stars, Wichita State likely cannot be properly assessed until after Markis McDuffie returns from injury.
That being said, the Shockers as currently constructed have as good an argument as anyone—outside of maybe Duke—to lay claim to being the country’s most complete team.
The latest evidence supporting that notion came on Tuesday, as No. 6 Wichita State staved off Marquette, 80-66, in the first semifinal of the Maui Jim Maui Invitational.
The Shockers advance to meet No. 13 Notre Dame in Wednesday’s championship game. The Irish drubbed LSU, 92-53.
