WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Wichita State coach Gregg Marshall has never been shy about proclaiming the exploits of his team.

But after the No. 24 Shockers outlasted East Carolina 75-69 on Wednesday, he was not in the mood to do so.

“It wasn’t anything to shout about or call home,” Marshall said flatly. “We didn’t play our best.”
