Wichita State Player Spotlight
Asbjorn Midtgaard had zero points (0-4 FT) and one block over three minutes in Saturday's 87-79 win against UCF. Midtgaard's production increased slightly last season, but he's regressed in most categories as he's seen limited minutes for the Shockers in the 2019-20 campaign. The junior is averaging just 1.9 points and 2.2 rebounds over 17 appearances this season.
Tulsa Player Spotlight
Martins Igbanu had 28 points (9-14 FG, 10-15 FT), 10 rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block over 36 minutes in Sunday's 79-75 overtime win against UConn. Despite coming off the bench Sunday, Igbanu picked up his first double-double of the season with a career-high 28 points as he shot 64.3 percent from the floor and made 10 free throws. The senior has started 12 games for Tulsa this season, but it's unclear as to whether he'll see more looks after his massive output against UConn.
