Wichita State looked more like a No. 1 seed than anyone else
The Shockers were 34-0 headed into this tournament, but that wasn’t enough to win over the nation. A non-power conference and a brutal crop of other top seeds in their region made them a trendy pick to lose early.
But in a tourney where all three of the other No. 1 seeds looked sluggish, Wichita State absolutely owned Cal Poly from start to finish in a dominating defensive effort for a 64-37 win.
That’s the first one. Second coming up.-
I did say, in an ill considered e-mail to an avid basketball freak, that WSU would go to the third or fourth game.
Ill considered because I hadn’t the foggiest as to who was playing whom (or the other way around). I, also, hadn’t an idea what WSU’s yearly record might have been at the time of the email.
Since, however, casual browsing told me WSU’s detractors were . in full force, my “hometown pride” was challenged. So, without thought, knee jerk reaction, I responded.
I’m stuck now, aren’’t I? And, no. I didn’t watch the game. I don’t care for basketball. Which is hard to explain, really. I think basketball is boring, and baseball is generally worth watching – although I’d much rather have NASCAR and Football on.
Yes. I know, baseball more interesting than basketball. Still, I’d rather read a book than go to a boxing match or view MMA.
