After winning three games last year, the AfterShocks look to win six this time around.
The hometown favorites get the advantage once again, as the Wichita State-based team gets the Wichita location for the basketball tournament. Led by Conner Frankamp, a TBT legend, and elite overseas player, the AfterShocks look like they are primed to make a deep run in this year’s tournament.

You can make a decent argument that not only is Frankamp the best player on his team, but one of the best players in the basketball tournament. Frankamp always makes the big shot and most important a team captain and leader on the court, something that is so important in basketball. With his experience of how the TBT works, he’ll be able to control the game at a high level and lead this AfterShocks team to several victories.
Make-or-break player: Shaquille Morris
The former 4-year Wichita State shocker is enjoying a breakout year for Kyoto Hannaryz, scoring 16.3 points and adding 8.4 rebounds. The AfterShocks only roster two centers, meaning Morris will have a big role, and he will need to deliver and create a balance of scoring.
Having a home-court advantage through most of the tournament will be huge for the AfterShocks, especially in what could be one of the hardest regions. They’ll have to potentially take on some big-time competitors on the way there, including Eberlein Drive, a consistent threat in the basketball tournament. With a go-to guy and solid contributors around him, all signs point towards another strong year from the AfterShocks.
