NCAAB: Monday, November 13, 2017 at 9:00 p.m. EST

The Line: Wichita State Shockers -16.5. Total: 137.5

Both the Wichita State Shockers and College of Charleston Cougars will be looking to improve to 2-0 on the young season when they square off at Wichita State’s Charles Koch Arena on Monday night. The Shockers tipped off their 2017-18 campaign by beating Missouri-Kansas City on Friday. College of Charleston went to overtime with Sienna before surviving.

Talented returnees

The Cougars outlasted Siena 68-60 overtime on Friday despite shooting 32.9 percent from the field. Senior guard Joe Chealey, a first-team All-Colonial Athletic Association selection after averaging 17.8 points (fourth in the CAA) and 3.2 assists (eighth) per game last season, contributed 17 points and seven rebounds n the OT victory while shooting 6-for-21 from the field. Sophomore guard Grant Riller, who averaged 13.1 ppg in 2016-17 last season and as named to the All-CAA rookie team, scored 21 points (7-for-17 from the floor). Junior forward Jarrell Brantley, an All-CAA second-team selection who averaged 14.2 ppg and 8.4 rpg (third in the CAA) last year, did not play after injuring his knee in practice this past week. College of Charleston has returned all five starters from last season’s 25-win team.

“It will be good to catch up with some folks that I really like and admire,” Wichita State head coach Gregg Marshall said of the Cougars. “(Charleston) Coach (Earl) Grant was with me for six years (as an assistant)…. They are a very good team. I think it is his best team…. They’ve got some really, really good players. They are a dangerous team, and we are going to have to play very well.”

Shamet comes out strong

The eighth-ranked Shockers’ season opener was a productive one, as they clobbered Missouri-Kansas City 109-57 on Friday and gave an indication that sophomore guard Landry Shamet is healthy again. Shamet, who showed no evidence of offseason foot surgery, delivered 17 points and was one of six Wichita State players in double-figures.

When asked what impressed him the most about Shamet on Friday, Marshall responded, “Not his (three) turnovers. The way he shot the ball, he looked very healthy; looked in great shape. He’s got to be a little more careful with the basketball. I thought, all-in-all, the first nine, 10 guys played really well.”

Front and center was senior forward Darral Willis Jr., who recorded team highs of 19 points and 10 rebounds after averaging 9.8 ppg and 5.1 rpg last season. The Shockers, who begin the season with their highest ranking in the coaches poll since they were No. 7 in 1981-82, run deep with 10 players logging at least 10 minutes Friday. Shaquille Morris’ senior season is off to a good start, as the center turned in 16 points, five rebounds, four blocks, two assists, and two steals. Senior guard Conner Frankamp also had a strong game with 11 points and a career-high nine assists.

Charleston is coming off a solid season in which it reached the NIT and lost at Colorado State 81-74 in the first round. The Cougars were voted to win the CAA in the preseason poll. Asking them to win at Wichita State may be too much to ask, but 16.5 points should be enough to cover.

Pick: College of Charleston Cougars +16.5
