Wichita State came into the West Region as the ninth seed, not having reached a Final Four since 1965. The Shockers started their run to the Final Four by beating eighth-seeded Pittsburgh, 73-55. Wichita State followed that up by beating top-seeded Gonzaga, 76-70 in a big early-round surprise.

Wichita State then moved on to Los Angeles for the regional semifinal, where it beat fellow Cinderella, La Salle, 72-58 in a 9 seed vs. 13 seed matchup. On Saturday, the Shockers completed the run to the Final Four by beating second-seeded Ohio State, 70-66.

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Wichita State came into the NCAA tournament with 66/1 odds to win this region and reach the Final Four. This means a wager of $100 on Wichita State to win the West will pay out an additional $6,600.

In Saturday’s win, Wichita State dominated the game from the opening tip and built up a lead to 20 points in the second half before Ohio State made a strong push back. The Buckeyes got within three points before the Shockers closed the game out. Wichita State held Ohio State to 19 of 61 shooting from the floor and 5 of 25 shooting from 3-point land. Malcolm Armstead had 14 points and nine rebounds to lead the Shockers, as six players had eight points or more for Wichita State.
