Wichita State caps off its primetime week with a road win against UConn 89-86 (2 OT). Shockers show their youth at times, but when on, they’re extremely tough to beat. Refs may need some security exiting Hartford.
That was the first Wichita State game that has gone more than one overtime since a triple-overtime thriller that ended in a 93-86 loss at Drake on Jan. 28, 2012.
This UConn-Wichita State 2-OT game is fun enough but Steve Lappas & Pete Gillen’s free-for-all announcing has been the real treat. Like watching a game with two smart, engaged fans, one with a Bronx accent, one with a Brooklyn accent.
I'd like to explain to somebody 15 years ago that we'd be earnestly watching a plucky underdog UConn team at home trying to pull an inspiring comeback off against national powerhouse Wichita State.
Wichita State is now 15-1.
They have wins over Oklahoma, @ Ok. St, VCU, Ole Miss, Memphis, and now @ UConn.
Only loss is to a really good West Virginia team.

SHOCKERS 61 - PIRATES 53 | FINAL
UConn did so much work to climb back into that game against Wichita State. Goes to double OT. Christian Vital on the verge of tears. Crazy finish. Tough loss. Gregg Marshall will be happy to leave with a win but a lot of mistakes Shockers can't make against tougher opponents.
I love this idea that Wichita State "paid off the refs", who somehow allowed UConn to shoot 18 more free throws.
