KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Gregg Marshall likes to say that Wichita State is a reflection of the town it calls home: a hard-working, blue-collar, nose-to-the-grindstone kind of place.
Maybe that's why it's so easy to imagine the coach reminding his team at halftime against Ohio State to ``play angry,'' and the Shockers riding that command to their first Final Four since 1965.
No. 9 seed Wichita State built a 20-point lead before holding on for a 70-66 victory over the second-seeded Buckeyes on Saturday night in Los Angeles, and now heads to Atlanta with a chance to make history.
Since seeding began in 1979, the lowest to win the NCAA tournament was Villanova, which was seeded eighth when it beat Georgetown in the final.
