Webber was the Kansas State coach from 2012-22, so he trained against Shannon and Meyer in the Big 12 Conference last season.

“Shannon and Meyer, you have two really good players who have been key to Baylor and Texas Tech,” Webber said. “It will give them instant productivity. There is no doubt. Both can score. Now, could they be the key players? They weren’t the key players in their teams. Now, can they do that consistently?”

Prior to training at K-State, Webber was the head coach of Illinois from 2003-12 and head coach of Southern Illinois from 1998-2003.

Illinois opens the 2022-23 season against Eastern Illinois at home on Monday, November 7.

It’s just something that excites me.”
