Wichita State Shockers: Potential opponents for first two rounds

  • Marshall Beats Wichita State 81-75

Thanks to a sea of replays, the final 60 seconds of the No. 13 Marshall Thundering Herd's upset of the No. 4 Wichita State Shockers in the 2018 NCAA tournament took 18 minutes and 26 seconds, according to Deadspin's Timothy Burke.

"We think it looks good, man, you see a lot of people crackin' on him, chanting where's your tie and stuff like that", guard Jon Elmore said earlier in the week before he scored a team-high 27 points in the win.

On Thursday, 13th-seeded Buffalo knocked No. 4 seed Arizona out of the tournament.

"I told them at the beginning the goal is to win the NCAA tournament". That was the first time in school history that we've won a tournament game, except for my NIT team where we won two.

If the Shockers beat Marshall (more on them in a bit), they could square off against either West Virginia or Murray State in the Round of 32.




Frankamp said Elmore "controlled the pace of the game". They made huge plays down the stretch and without that we wouldn't have won.

Marshall (+11½) over Wichita State: Before receiving his first head-coaching job in college - and taking Marshall to its first NCAA Tournament since 1987 - Dan D'Antoni spent the previous decade as an assistant under his younger brother, Mike, with the Suns, Knicks and Lakers. Burks posted solid 13 points. Morris had 12 for the Shockers and Shamet 11.

"I like our kids", he said. Coach D'Antoni does a great job of spacing the floor. "Hell, I'm at a loss for words". Purdue did not come to play, beating California State University Fullerton, 74-48, while Texas A&M pulled off the win over Providence, 73-69.

D'Antoni knows his analytics and the expected value of a corner 3-pointer, contested lay-up, a trip to the foul line for two free throws, etc.

Wichita State outrebounded the Thundering Herd 44-30, with Rashard Kelly grabbing 12.
