Marshall upsets Wichita State in NCAA Tournament

Marshall upsets Wichita State in NCAA Tournament

Marshall comes in having won four straight and five of the last six overall.

Wichita State's season ended Friday on the shores of the Pacific Ocean, falling short in their first round game of the NCAA Tournament. Elmore's output was tied with Wichita State's Conner Frankamp for the game-high. The Thundering Herd is making its first appearance since 1987.

"We never played our best", said Marshall. Since then, Wichita State out-scored the Thundering Herd by 10 points. "I don't care who you put on me, I'm going to attack you 40 minutes, and that's what we it did tonight".

As former conference rivals in the Missouri Valley Conference, the Redbirds were constantly trying to overtake the Shockers for league supremacy and the Valley's NCAA tournament autobid.

But, Marshall was leading by 5 points at the time and did have momentum. I think it should be played.

The Thundering Herd advance to a second-round game on Sunday against the victor of West Virginia and Murray State. Jon Elmore averages nearly 23 while C.J. Burks is a 20.5 per game guy.

Game time in sports is notorious for not really abiding by the rules of, well time. "One of us is going to keep playing". You don't get as many open shots as you get during the regular season. The senior guard scored 27 points, including a number of deep 3-pointers in the second half.

Penava scored16 points, Burks 13 and Williams 10.

In the end, the past history of the West Virginia-Marshall series doesn't matter to the Mountaineer coach, at least not at this point.
