Rojas Earns First Honor Roll Nod

Wichita State senior James Rojas grabbed every rebound and loose ball in sight last week, as well as a spot on the American Athletic Conference Honor Roll.

Rojas is averaging 11.7 points and a team-best 7.4 rebounds since the start of conference play and has scored in double-figures in each of the last eight contests.
