Do the Shockers still have the biggest stunner of them all in them?

Probably not, but expect 30-8 Wichita State to give mighty No. 1-overall seed Louisville, 33-5, a bigger test than its previous tourney opponents, who lost by an average of just under 22 points a game.

The teams certainly respect each other. Earlier in the week, Louisville head coach Rick Pitino called the Shockers: “Marquette on steroids in terms of the way they play defence” and said they are the best defensive team the Cardinals have faced all year.
