#9 Wichita State Shockers (29-8 SU, 18-14-2 ATS) are coming off a dominating, 72-58 win over La Salle, laying 4.5 on Thursday, The #2 Ohio State Buckeyes (29-7 SU, 20-13-1 ATS) defeated Arizona, 73-70 on Thursday, laying 3. Wichita State is no longer a Cinderella. The Shockers destroyed La Salle on Thursday, 72-58, giving 4.5.  They also beat No. 1 seed Gonzaga, 76-70, getting 6.5 last Saturday. You can't say they haven't beaten a team from a power conference, because they dominated Pittsburgh, 73-55, on March 21, getting 4. Carl Hall (6-8, 238) hit his first five shots for the Shockers and scored 14 of his 16 points in the paint against the undersized Explorers. Ohio State tends to play smaller lineups, when they take Amir Williams (6-11, 250) out of the lineup. Wichita State, who outrebounded La Salle, 44-23, should be able to hang with the Buckeyes on the boards. Both teams play very good defense. Wichita State held their last three opponents to a combined 35.5 percent. The Shockers are seeking their first Final Four since 1965. It will be no shock to see them win this game outright.
