Preview from USCTrojans.com

"Wichita State is 2-1 after defeating Emporia State 76-54 at home on Nov. 21. They also have an 88-63 home win over Charleston Southern and a 77-67 loss at Tulsa on Nov. 17. Ron Baker leads the Shockers with a 20.3 scoring average. The Shockers went 30-5 last season, won their league and advanced to the NCAA Sweet 16. They return three starters and nine lettermen from that team. USC has a 2-1 record in the all-time series against Wichita State, winning the last meeting against the then No. 8 Shockers 60-56 on Dec. 23, 2006 at the Las Vegas Classic."

From our preview:

"The Shockers have one of the best guards in the nation in 6'4" senior Ron Baker. Baker is averaging 20.3 points through three games this season and will be the main focal point of the Shockers offense. The Shockers will be without Fred VanVleet (hamstring). VanVleet was second on the team with 13.6 points per game last year and led the team with 5.2 assists per game. Wichita State has already suffered an upset this season, falling to Tulsa last Tuesday. If the Trojans can come away with a victory, this could really help their resumé (if they continue to play well) come March. The winner of the Wichita State/USC game will face the winner of Alabama/Xavier."
