The Wichita State Shockers lost six seniors, Landry Shamet to the NBA Draft and a handful of players who decided to take their talents elsewhere after last season.
So, Saturday afternoon, there were plenty of new faces on the court for the Shockers annual Black and Gold Scrimmage at Koch Arena.
Freshman Chance Moore had an impressive debut, nailing three three pointers in a row in the second half to finish with 13 points for the gold team.
In the end, it was the black team that got the one point win, 26 to 25.
It was largely in part to forward Teddy Allen, who transferred from West Virginia.
The sophomore had 12 points to go along with six rebounds.
Head Coach Gregg Marshall was asked if Allen will be eligible to suit up this season.
“You know, we are in the process of filing the waiver and hopefully the NCAA will see fit that he moved back to his roots there at Boystown,” said Marshall.
Marshall also spoke about the potential impact Allen could have on this team, if he is cleared to play.
“Every time, he cuts hard to the basket or comes off a screen, puts his head down he really wants to put the ball in the basket and this team could use that,” said Marshall.
The Shockers open their season on October 30, when they play host to Catawba College.
The game is set to tip-off at 7 p.m.
