Wichita State earns No. 1 seed in Midwest

Selection Sunday Wichita State Basketball

Wichita State still had something to be angry about on Selection Sunday.

The second-ranked Shockers landed the first No. 1 seed in school history and will start their pursuit of a second straight Final Four on Friday at 6:10 p.m. on CBS in St. Louis, where they ran their record to 34-0 by winning the Missouri Valley tournament last weekend.

That’s where the reward for their season ended, though. They landed in a loaded region that includes second-seeded Michigan, third-seeded Duke and fourth-seeded Louisville, the defending national champion.

Relying on their motto of “play angry,” the Shockers are the first school to reach the NCAA tournament unbeaten since UNLV in 1991. They’ll open against the winner of a game between Big West champion Cal Poly and SWAC champion Texas Southern.
