The Wichita State Shockers fell to 13-10 on the season following an 85-76 loss against the Cincinnati Bearcats on Thursday.

Cincinnati shot 55.2 percent from the field and 57.9% from beyond the arc, while Wichita State shot 44.6 percent from the field and 27.8 percent from beyond the arc.

#14 Houston Cougars vs Wichita State Shockers. The NCAAB pick for this game is the Wichita State Shockers. Houston is strong on both sides of the court this year, ranking 62nd in scoring offense, 5th in scoring defense, and 1st in defensive field goal percentage.

 

Wichita State’s defense is strong, ranking 72nd in scoring defense and 69th in defensive FG percent. However, the Shockers’ offense struggled, ranking 246th in scoring offense and 325th in FG percent heading into this game.

 

Houston had some recent struggles, losing at SMU and home to Memphis, and because Wichita State was able to make their game at Houston reasonably close, I believe Wichita State will give Houston everything they can handle and do enough to cover the points. The Wichita State Shockers will win to a predicted score of 70-65.
