WSU's Echenique out for a month with hand injury

Posted: Updated:

Wichita State will begin the basketball season without one of its top big man.

Jaime Echenique will miss at least a month with a fractured hand.   The injury will not require surgery.

Echenique is the Shockers only senior and the team's top returning scorer and rebounder. 

Wichita State is also going to be without Morris Udeze for the near future as he recovers from a concussion. Udeze missed most of last season with a shoulder injury. 

WSU opens exhibition play tomorrow at Koch Arena against Northeastern State.  Tipoff is 7:00 p.m.
