Key rotation piece Shumate is averaging 15.8 points and 4.8 rebounds across 31.3 minutes over his last four contests.
Impact Originally a transfer that would have had to sit out this season, Shumate benefitted from the NCAA's ruling that allowed a one-time blanket waiver for all transfers to gain immediate eligibility. That's worked out to the benefit of the Rockets, as Shumate has started the last 13 games, is fourth on the team in scoring (12.5 ppg), fourth in rebounding (4.4 rpg) and leads the way in blocks (1.3 bpg). The junior forward has helped the Rockets to sit atop the MAC standings entering Friday's slate of games.
