WICHITA, Kansas – Wichita State Men’s Basketball Coach Gregg Marshall released a statement on Cleanthony Early.
Early attended Wichita State and was drafted in 2014. Early, who plays for the New York Knicks, was shot in the leg during a robbery outside a Queens strip club. Early is hospitalized in stable condition.
“Our hearts are with Cleanthony on this difficult day.
