Wichita State fans weren’t surprised that Wichita State Shockers brought their A game last night against the No. 13 Explorers of La Salle to capture a victory by 14 points securing their spot in the Elite 8 for the first time in over 30 years.
This win was an awesome accomplishment for the Shockers and head coach Gregg Marshall. The team received an at-large bid after losing the Missouri Valley Conference Championship to Creighton, but has proved that they are very worthy of this trip to the NCAA tournament.
All around Wichita fans were watching the game. Some fans even traveled on a charter plane to LA to watch in person. Whether you go to WSU, are a current student or just living in Wichita, it’s a time when our entire city should be proud. It’s our hometown team and they are in the ELITE 8! Top 8 in the nation. Crazy.
The Shockers have a lot of support from Wichita area businesses and the people of the city! Keep your eyes out for the latest deals supporting the Shockers awesome performance!
Two WSU Alum even wrote a song about the Shockers…listen to it here.
