There is nothing overrated about Wichita State. Those guys were pretty darn good. Did you watch the game? Listen to the guys discuss it? Do you have any background knowledge of Kentucky? Kentucky played their best game of the year and Wich. State had a chance to win. That should tell you something. I don't think Wich. State is one of the top 4 teams in the country, but they deserved a #1 seed. They have no control over their schedule.

During the season, Wichita St. beat just as many teams that made the tournament as Louisville did. The Shockers were 5-0 versus tournament teams, while Louisville was 5-5, yet everyone was pouting about Louisville not being a 1 or 2 seed. The Shockers proved a lot today, even with the loss. Kentucky played lights out today, much better than any game they played this year. Seriously, they looked elite. And, yet, Wichita State still seemed like the better team most of the day. Best game of the tournament by far. Best game of the year, really. A game that came down to which team was more unbelievably good, not which team crapped the bed.

They do have control of their OOC schedule.

But yeah, they are a very good team.

On another note, Charles Barkley has to be the most boring analyst I can think of. He sounds as if he's going to fall asleep at any given time.

Also, I'm sick of seeing these coaches cry after losing. Losing is part of the game. Dry your eyes and be proud of what you accomplished. Hundreds of other teams would have loved to be in their position.

People don't want to schedule Wichita st. They do not have the control of their ooc schedule y'all seem to think. It is the same as to why Ohio St doesn't schedule dayton. Also it wasn't their ooc schedule that hurt them. They had they 28th (sos) ranked non conference schedule (rpi of 2) in the country while their overall schedule was 98 (sos) with rpi of 4. So yeah not overrated.

How crazy would it be to have a UK/UT Elite 8 matchup on Sunday??? I am so happy that anything else this team can pull off would just be unbelievable.

Michigan is a tough matchup so I am not expecting a win, but if we keep improving we may just get a shot at the final four.

UK or Louisville would be a very hard match up for us too.

Either way hats off to Coach Martin and the BallerVols!

Wichita State has opportunities to play higher profile teams, they just don't want to have to do 2-for-1 or other less than favorable deals to get those games. KU won't schedule them regardless, but they could get games with the other Big 12/Big 10 teams if they really wanted to.

TN did a home and home with them. We beat them in Knoxville last year and they beat us in Witchita this year. Both were great games.

I know they lost, but UCLA was one of the longest and most athletic team I've seen in the last 5 years or so.

They were giving Florida trouble there for a little bit, but it looked to me like they didn't want to "D" up.

tennessee got it all the way down to 1 and then played the dumbest last 8 seconds imaginable. they are killing michigan with dribble drives from their non bigs so they throw it in to stokes facing up on a defender 17 feet from the basket and ask him to drive. of course he gets the ball knocked and called for a charge.

then instead of immediately committing the two fouls they try knocking the inbounds pass away and whittle the clock down to 2.1 seconds in the process so they have no chance but a 3/4 court heave at the buzzer to win the game.

Don't have a problem with going to Stokes. I would have probably drawn up something for McRae, but I'm not paid the big bucks to make that call.

The defense after the foul was pathetic. Wasted about 4 seconds trying for steals/deflections. Even an extra second or two gives you a better shot than a half court heave.

Gotta give credit to UT though. They were playing well at the end of the year and made a nice run. Not too bad for a team with a coach that the fans put on the hot seat not too long ago.

If UK isn't careful, they are going to be embarrassed. Down 18-5 with 12:00 to go in the first half and playing like crap.
