WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) -- Landry Shamet only took two shots in the entire blowout victory over South Florida Sunday afternoon. He was 1/2 for three points, but that didn't matter.
Even opposing head coach Brian Gregory knew it didn't matter to Shamet and the Shockers.
"Shamet takes two shots the whole game. He don't care," he said. NBA prospect, lottery pick, first round pick, he don't care. Because they built a high level program here."
His sentiment is true. The entire program is based on unselfish play. Shamet dished seven assists in his game-high 22 minutes.
Head Coach Gregg Marshall spoke about his unselfish point guard after the 95-57 win.
"The epitome of our basketball team is, Landry Shamet, a guy who is an All-American, All-Conference player, in a game where we scored 95 points and took 59 shots, he took two."
Austin Reaves started this game alongside Shamet, after Conner Frankamp sat out with a stomach virus. Reaves said the entire team looks up to Shamet and his leadership style.
"It shows that he's a great leader and a great teammate," he said. "I know that everybody on the team respects and loves to play with him because he doesn't care about his numbers, he just wants to win. And that's his best quality because he is a winner and he's always been a winner."
Wichita State embarks on a two-game road trip Thursday against East Carolina, and then a short turn-around Saturday against Tulsa.
