Ohio St.-Arizona and Wichita St.-La Salle in L.A.


West Regional PreviewLOS ANGELES – The spotlight in Los Angeles Thursday will shine on some unfamiliar faces… and a few that know all about making the Sweet 16.

In the opening game from Staples Center, it’ll be perennial powerhouses taking the court, with second-seeded Ohio St. facing #6 seed Arizona. But in the nightcap, Cinderella takes center stage as ninth-seeded Wichita St., which beat #1 seed Gonzaga last time out, faces a La Salle team that’s already won three times in this tournament as a #13 seed.

Wayne Larrivee and Bill Frieder will be on hand to call the games on Westwood One Sports and they filed this report.
