We’ll admit it.
We thought the Wichita State hype might be a bit premature. But then the Shockers reeled off four dominant home wins and forced anyone entertaining those thoughts to reconsider.
They now head to the Battle 4 Atlantis, far from the heart of Kansas, with a potential 2013 Final Four rematch with Louisville on the table. For their part, they’ll need to get by LSU this afternoon to make that happen.
Here’s all you need to know to watch that and the other Thanksgiving Eve action.
