OMAHA, NE – If it hadn’t been clear before, it is now: Wichita State is no longer the little brother to KU. Spurred by a barrage of second-half threes, the Shockers knocked off the Jayhawks and reached the Sweet 16 where they’ll face No. 3 Notre Dame next week in Cleveland.
Tekele Cotton led all scorers with 19 points for the Shockers, with Fred VanVleet following up with 17.
Perry Ellis and Devonte Graham had 17 points each in the loss.
Kevin Kugler and Will Perdue called the action on Westwood One Sports.
