Marshall upsets Wichita State for 1st NCAA Tournament victory

Marshall upsets Wichita State for 1st NCAA Tournament victory”

Sure, as long as No. 13 seed Marshall (24-10) can lead in its "Big Dance" matchup against No. 4 Wichita State (25-7) at 1:30 p.m. here Friday, March 16, in Viejas Arena during first-round play of the East Regional in the NCAA basketball tournament. Wherever we get in the vehicle driving down the road to that championship, when it stops we'll all get off and we'll be happy because we like who is in the auto.

Marshall hasn't appeared in the NCAA Tournament since 1987 and is the underdog against the Shockers, who earned a tournment bid out of the American Athletic Conference.

Dallas Cowboys: Ndamukong Suh, Tyrann Mathieu fit, team won't act
Mathieu would be a big get for the Texans, who featured one of the league's worst secondaries past year . Mathieu still believes he's starting material and will likely be looking to get paid well in free agency.

"They made shots, we didn't", says Shocker fan Jim Price who joined the team in southern California.

"I was pleased with (our seed)", Marshall said. The victor advances to face Murray State or West Virginia. Frankamp leads the Shockers with 14 points. The next time down the floor, West buried a long 3 and raised his right hand in celebration after giving the Thundering Herd a 74-70 lead. After a long video review, the referees awarded the ball to Marshall, and Penava had a slam dunk off an inbounds pass.

The 6-foot-3 Elmore held up even though he was guarded by bigger opponents.

I'm proud of the players. He played really well, but we knew that going into the game. Marshall had 11 steals, including a few key moments late, and while the officiating was hardly great (both in terms of judgment calls and replay management), this was not an undeserved loss for Wichita State. Morris had 12 for the Shockers and Shamet 11.
