The Wichita State Shockers are off to their first 0-3 start in conference play for the first time since joining the American Conference and will look to snap their skid on Sunday against Cincinnati.

Cincinnati Bearcats vs. Wichita State Shockers (-1.5, 134)

(stats as of Saturday morning)

The Bearcats have one of the best interior defenses in the country, ranking fourth in the country in opponent 2-point shooting percentage, and is 35th in overall points allowed on a per-possession basis.

The Wichita State defense is a near equal in points allowed on a per-possession basis, ranking 37th in points allowed on a per-possession basis with a perimeter defense that is 25th in the country in opponents 3-point shooting percentage.

Wichita State played their most recent game, a home loss to Tulane, without Morris Udeze and Dexter Dennis, both of whom are going through healthy and safety protocols are questionable as to whether or not they can return.

With Wichita State having allowed 68 points or fewer in eight of their last 10 games, and both teams in the bottom 100 in 3-point shooting, it will be a low scoring affair in Kansas on Sunday.

Pick: Under 134
