Shocker seniors prepare for Senior Day against Cincinnati

Posted: Updated:

The Shockers escaped Orlando with an overtime win over UCF on Thursday night while Cincinnati throttled Tulane to clinch at least a share of the AAC regular season title.

Should Wichita State win their match-up against the Bearcats on Sunday, they get a share of the championship and lock down the No. 1 seed in next week's conference tournament.

It will also be senior day, a special occasion for six Shockers that have all contributed to the success of this program.

Shaq Morris, Zach Brown, Rashard Kelly, Darral Willis, Rauno Nurger and Conner Frankamp are all leaving their mark. They hope they're far from done with one last deep March run left in them. To cap off their careers at Koch Arena with not only a win but also another championship would mean everything to them as they leave their legacy.

"It's really important for us. We didn't want to have any down years," Frankamp said. "I think last year people said we were going to have a down year especially after Canada, we didn't play very well there and then we ended up winning 31 games last year and almost beat Kentucky, so I don't think it was a bad year last year and then this year I hope we can make a run in the tournament."

"This group is crazy close man. It's like, crazy, we're really like family, you know? I think that's what makes us so good on the court is off the court carries on to on the court, you know what I'm saying? So I think that's why we're so special," Willis added.

"Yeah, no better scenario 10 and 11 going in it, last game at Koch Arena, I know it's going to be loud, you know, I'm just ready for it, ready to try to get this win," Morris concluded.

Tip off between No. 10 Cincinnati and No. 11 Wichita State on Sunday at 11 a.m. on CBS.
