Best of all they have won all 3 times as a dog this season. Their Double digit home favored loss to Missouri St sets them up in a solid system here today as they look to improve on the 52% shooting they allowed last out. Wichita has failed to cover in 8 of their last 12 December games and 4 of the last 5 vs Winning teams. The Shockers have beaten some down trodden teams of late and this will be a real test. In their last 3 games they have played stifling defense wallowing no higher than 28%. This figures to change here today against a talented Creighton team. Take the points with Creighton.
