Who are Wichita State? - 03/24/13 04:45 AM

There are a lot of basketball fans. All teams have them for numerous reasons. They might be alumni . Might live near them. Might have children there or just might like them for whatever.
In Kansas if you bring up college sports most will think of Kansas University of Kansas State as both have great programs. But we have another division I college in Kansas. Wichita State. But few think of it.

One of the reasons I love the NCAA tourney is that if a school doesn't bring it's game every time it could lose. Even if they do play well, their opponent still could win. A small school can win over a big powerhouse . We've seen it happen, already this year. Florida Gulf Coast , 15 seed, beat 2 seed Geogetown. Iowa State beat Notre Dame

Tonight, Sat, Wichita State won over number one seed, Gonzaga, who just before selection, were number one in the polls. The game was no fluke. Wichita state played with them the whole game even led by 17 at one time.

Love the games

Wichita state going to final four - 03/31/13 02:28 AM

Well the completely unexpected, in most folks mind, happened. Wichita state beat Ohio State , the number two seed, to when the West regional. No "expert" thought that could happen.

But, WSU lead from the last third of the first half to lead 35-22 at the half then continue until near the end when OSU closed up. WSU held on to win 70-66

It's been somewhat rare that a 9 seed goes into the final four. They will join the others not seeded less than 4.
