Conner Frankamp will not be benched over shooting struggles

WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) -- To say Conner Frankamp is in a shooting slump would be an understatement.

The senior guard is shooting 21.4 percent from the field in the last five games, even worse from three, an abysmal 12.5 percent.

Frankamp was 0-5 in his last outing, a 20-point win over Memphis, and has only scored 2 points in his last three games.

Assistant Coach Kyle Lindsted said there are no plans to replace Frankamp in the lineup.

"Totally trusting the process and we're going to play Conner," he said. "We need Conner, so I don't think there's any plan to go away from that."

Landry Shamet suffered a similar shooting slump, missing 17-straight three pointers in a three-game stretch. He also shot 22 percent from the field through his four-game slump (Houston, UCF, Tulsa, Temple). Shamet bounced back with a 20-point performance against Memphis, 7-11 FG, 4-7 3FG.

Lindsted recognizes that shooters have to shoot themselves out of slumps.

"I know the next one's going in. If I know it, he's got to know it, and his teammates to believe it," he said. I'll take Conner Frankamp wide open any day of the week."
