It wasn’t even that long ago that when Wichita State made the NCAA Tournament, its opponent was -900 on the money line.
What a fine head coach Gregg Marshall is. He is the number one reason why the Shockers are probably one of the ten best teams in the tournament.
I believe WSU to be better than every 3-seed, besides perhaps Michigan State. The defense is consistently swarming and the offense started clicking about halfway through the conference schedule.
Markis McDuffie also finally emerged as a serious sixth-man in about the final three regular season games before the conference tournament.
Landry Shamet has plenty of NBA teams waiting to call his name in the middle to the end of the first round and this is just about the entire team that lost last year’s heartbreaker to Kentucky in the Round of 32.
Meanwhile, Marshall ruined a lot of the moves I was getting ready to make in the first round, namely getting big behind Western Kentucky.
I was all over the Hilltoppers’ chances in the NCAA Tournament since November but Marshall held onto a lead in the closing minutes of the C-USA Championship Game.
It got lucky, too. Western Kentucky shot 35 percent, which for it is almost impossible to imagine. Meanwhile, Marshall threw in 42 percent of its threes.
The Herd can score, though. Jon Elmore averages over 22 points per game; CJ Burks gets over 20; and Adjin Penava chips in 15.5 as the third option.
It plays frantic and it plays fast. To me, that’s a recipe for disaster against Wichita State.
