Etienne named AAC Freshman of the Week

Posted: Updated:

Wichita State went 2-0 last week, with dominant wins over Central Arkansas and Oklahoma State. Leading the way for the Shockers is Tyson Etienne. 

Etienne was named the AAC Freshman of the Week on Monday. 

The New Jersey native scored 13 points in the win over the Bears and then he poured in 19 on Sunday against the Cowboys. Etienne is already quite the shooter. He went 8-13 from 3 last week. 

"I was just getting out there and my teammates where finding me. I was just shooting the ball with confidence. Not doing anything different, just playing my game," said Etienne. "Coach had a great scout, and had a great plan for us going into the game and we just executed it."

"He's very coachable. He's a wonderful young man and he just listens," said Wichita State men's basketball coach Gregg Marshall. "We talk about finding the window, when the penetration occurs finding the window and he's really good at it and he's getting better."
