If you haven’t heard yet, Wichita State University men’s basketball team had a perfect season. They had 31 wins with no losses. That is a first for the school. The only other time WSU has had this much attention is when they made it to the Final Four during the 2012 March Madness.
Final Four 2012
In 2012, the Wichita State University men’s basketball team made it to the Final Four, going against Virginia Commonwealth University. WSU may have been showing their wear during the game, they did put up a good fight. Even though VCU defeated WSU with the score of 62 to 59, WSU had finally made a comeback nearly 50 years in the making.
Wichita State always put the score and delivered when the game ended. Their ‘Play Angry’ attitude, helped keep the team motivated through each game, as well as their coach, Gregg Marshall. It was on March 1st, 2014, during their final home game that they kept their season in check, giving them the 31-0 ‘perfect season’ they needed. They were going against Missouri State and won the game with the score of 68 to 45.
Missouri Valley Tournament
Though the Wichita State men’s basketball team still has to compete in the Missouri Valley tournament, I think the team will win those games too. The tournament will take place in St. Louis, Missouri at the Scottrade Center. The tournament will take place March 6-9, 2014.
March Madness 2014 Seed Prediction
As someone who went to Wichita State University, I’m going to make my prediction for this year’s March Madness Seed Prediction. I’m going to say that they will have a chance at getting a #1 seed. In what region, I’m not sure, but if I had to make that prediction, I would say the West region.
That is why this year is the year to be ‘Shocked.’ Wichita State University is one of the overlooked teams in the NCAA. WSU knows how to bring their A-game. I am proud of my Shockers and proud to be part of the Shocker nation. So let’s Shock the nation.
