ST. LOUIS -- Wichita State junior Nick Wiggins was named to the Missouri Valley Conference's All-Bench Team, the conference announced today.
Wiggins, a 6-foot-6 guard from Toronto, Canada, averaged 5.4 points while shooting 42 percent from the field and 43 percent from the arc in all 30 Shocker games. He also scored a career-high 18 points in 17 minutes at Drake and had seven double-figure scoring games.

The Most-Improved Team was also released, but no Shockers were chosen.
