🏀 AAC Player of the Week
⚾️ Preseason praise is already pouring in
🌾 And much, much more!
🌾 ONE BIG THING
Following the Shockers’ conference-opening win against Tulane, star guard Tre’Zure Jobe was awarded the AAC Conference Player of the Week for her 21-point, eight-assist performance. When it mattered most, Jobe came up big as she scored the final eight points for Wichita State in the last 1:41 of action.
🗣️ "Tre'Zure was huge. This is what we expect from her. This is really her typical game. She has high expectations for herself, too, and this is how she expects to play and wants to play every single game, so it's good for her to come back home and let the people see what she's all about as a player." - Terry Nooner on Jobe following her performance against Tulane
📈 STOCK UP
🔼 Preseason Praise. Baseball season is coming soon to Eck Stadium, but pitcher Caden Favors is already receiving accolades. The left-handed thrower was selected to the American Athletic Conference preseason all-conference team.
Favors is coming off a season in which he handled nearly every role on the Wichita State pitching staff, from starter to long reliever to closer. The southpaw finished the year 3-4 with a 4.04 ERA in 21 appearances, three of which were starts. He worked 42.1 innings, striking out 37 while issuing 15 walks, and held opponents to a .261 batting average.
🔼 All Time High. Wichita State student-athletes set a school record for the second consecutive semester with a 3.45 cumulative grade-point average for the Fall of 2023. The mark breaks the all-time record of 3.406 set during the Spring 2023 semester. It also marks the 37th consecutive semester of Shocker student-athletes earning higher than a 3.00 cumulative grade-point average department-wide.
