    I was hoping The Tide would win the NIT, but still a very good showing for the SEC West champion.

    WS played a zone and it was our downfall. I believe we scored 24 points in the second half. It was a very nice run.

    Glad to see the better team won.
    I was a little worried they would play down to the level of the team they were playing but they did not.

    Now, does Wichita coach Gregg Marshall become Missouri's next coaching target?

    ^ My hope is that he's at the top of Dayton's list right now as well. But that's pretty much a lateral move and not necessarily a step up. Heck if I know who we'll actually go for.

    Thats Ok, we are a football school with a very good basketball program that we are very proud of. ^^^^Glad you are happy your team won ^^^, my son's soccer team lost 1-0 to a much better team, and they played very hard also, there is no disgrace in losing, only in not trying.

    Without looking it up, Newark can't name a single player on the Shockers (probably doesn't even know that's Wichita State's mascot), yet he somehow "knows" they were the better team.

    You ever heard the saying, "you win with class, you lose with class"? Your posts suggest you do neither.

    Very true AL. Plus your football program is 10x the program he wishes his was, so you've got that going for ya too.

    To be fair Wichita St actually was a 2.5 point favorite in this one.
