One of the biggest upsets in the history of the NCAA Tournament didnt happen in large part because of two players, one each for Louisville and Wichita State, whose combined scoring is a solid grade-point average.
Michigan holds off Syracuse 61-56, will play Louisville next for the men’s NCAA basketball title.
Wichita State's post-game locker room was a scene of frustration. More than just a loss, this game represented the end of the line for the Shockers' seniors.
Wichita State loses 72-68 to Louisville in the national semifinals of the NCAA men's basketball tournament, bringing an end to the Shockers' historical run to the Final Four.

The Wichita State Shockers, playing in the Final Four for the first time since 1965, led Louisville 26-25 at halftime in Atlanta.
At the 1977 Final Four, St. Bonaventure coach Jim Satalin was riding high. His team had just defeated Houston to win the National InvitationTournament, and the congratulations were pouring in.
Rick Pitino is going for the trifecta plus one within the span of six days.
