KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Cleanthony Early heard someone say before the start of the NCAA tournament that only about 30 percent of brackets filled out by fans had Wichita State winning its first game.
Well, the junior forward has just one question now: How many had the Shockers winning two?
In a tournament that has given rise to the lower class, where double-digit seeds have become adept at knocking off the game's blue bloods, the ninth-seeded Shockers' upset of No. 1 seed Gonzaga has quietly put them in a position to make an improbable run at the Final Four.
The Shockers (28-8) take on No. 13 seed La Salle on Thursday night in Los Angeles, and then would get sixth-seeded Arizona or No. 2 seed Ohio State for a spot in Atlanta.
