No. 21 Wichita State runs away from Southern Illinois, 76-55--Wichita Eagle
The Shockers made seven free throws to make it 49-31 and four straight points from Grady gave Wichita State a 53-34 lead with 14:11 to play.

"Our guards were really pounding the ball down to Shaq and me," Grady said. "They were dropping the ball down to us and giving us good opportunities."
Day After: No. 21 Wichita State 76, Southern Illinois 55--Wichita Eagle
Rotation watch:

WSU’s post position keeps looking stronger.

Shaq Morris and Anton Grady combined to make 10 of 14 shots. Grady’s defensive effort has bumped up in recent games. Morris and VanVleet find each other regularly for lobs. It’s a good mix, especially when Grady keeps his desire to shoot threes (1 of 8 this season) under wraps.
