"There may not be a more dangerous newcomer to the TBT field in 2019 than this group of Wichita State alumni. Organized by former Shocker guard Karon Bradley, the roster is so jam-packed with standout players that Wichita State fans may have to pinch themselves when the team takes the floor. The AfterShocks are expected to be led by former NBA players Toure’ Murry and Tekele Cotton, and injected with youth from recent graduates Shaq Morris and Conner Frankamp. Backed by one of the most rabid fanbases in the country, the AfterShocks have all the makings of a TBT championship contender."
