The No. 9 seed Shockers have surprised everyone with their postseason run, knocking off No. 8 Pittsburgh, No. 1 Gonzaga, No. 13 La Salle, and No. 2 Ohio State en route to their first Final Four appearance since 1965. Wichita State has gotten it done with a team effort, spreading the scoring around evenly. Guard Malcolm Armstead was named the West Regional's Most Outstanding Player, but six different players have scored in double figures during the tournament for the Shockers.
If Wichita State wants its run to continue it will have to play its best game of the season on Saturday against Louisville. The Cardinals have won 14 straight games and breezed through the tournament, winning by an average margin of 21.75 points per game. Armstead needs to have a strong game against the Louisville pressure defense for the Shockers to have a chance.
Game Date and Time: Saturday, April 13, 6:09 p.m. ET
