Wichita State has amazed the entire country with their 2013 NCAA Tournament run. Players such as Carl Hall and Cleanthony Early are controlling the paint. The sharpshooting of Ron Baker and the lockdown defense by TeKele Cotton have opposing guards frightened and dismayed. So many teams are probably asking themselves “Where did this team come from? “. Actually, the Wichita State Shockers have been solid during the entire year. They finished the regular season with a 26-8 record and were the runners-up for the MVC Tournament. When the Shockers made it to the tournament they began to live up to their mascot’s name. In the second round of the NCAA Tournament, Wichita State dismantled Pittsburgh by a score of 73-55. Everyone around the country was stunned. Surely they were not going to win again but they remained alive with a 76-70 upset of 1-seeded Gonzaga. Last night, they knocked off a very scrappy La Salle team by a score of 72-58 to advance to the Elite 8 for the first time since 1981.These guys from Wichita, Kansas are definitely some bracket-busters and they are looking to bust up Ohio State in the Elite 8. They are capable of making it even further than they have already and that is for certain!
We Will, We Will “Shock” You!
