WICHITA, Kan The Shockers are taking on more than college basketball's best in the NCAA tournament--they are challenging the Sports Illustrated jinx.
The Shockers are featured on a regional cover of the popular magazine this week. Shocker guard Tekele Cotton is surrounded by Shocker supporters, including WSU greats Antoine Carr and Xavier McDaniel.
It is one of six regional covers. Student athletes from Florida, Arizona, Michigan State, Syracuse and Connecticut are also featured.
The Shockers open play Friday in St. Louis.
