WSU & KU look to advance to Sweet 16

NCAA games a hot ticket at Bankers Life

Second-seeded Kentucky defeated Wichita State 65-62 on Sunday at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

"I was just playing straight-up defense", Monk said of his block on McDuffie. "We're going to keep those guys fresh". "When I heard all that stuff, just kind of took it personally... I just contested well".

Malik Monk didn't break completely out of his shooting slump, but he hit two huge 3-pointers for the 'Cats in the three-point victory.

"We didn't have very good ball security", Marshall said.

"I just go out there and play basketball", Adebayo said when asked about the trash-talking before the game on Sunday. "I think he thought he might have an opening".

Because Marshall has never been at a high profile job, it is tough to know how his recruiting would translate to IN where the focus would nearly assuredly be on different kids.

Lynn Marshall, wife of Wichita State coach Gregg Marshall, had a curse-filled meltdown when the University of Kentucky Wildcats beat her husabnd's team in a close NCAA tournament game over the weekend and had to be escorted out by security. "I wish we had a pass to do it again".

The 2017 Shockers also have beaten 3 top 50 teams this season, but also have lost to top 50 teams 4 times.

The loss snapped a 16-game win streak for the 10th-seeded Shockers (31-5).

The Wildcats head to Memphis next week to the NCAA Sweet 16 after win over Wichita State. Even though he is 6-10, 260 pounds, Adebayo was nimble enough to get this done. The final score can be deceiving because the Cats led by 14 at the half, and extended their lead to 18 points, 63-45 with 8:17 remaining in the game.

Wichita State's desperation look from Landry Shamet was blocked at the buzzer.

Offense wins games, defense wins championships. I really didn't play well in the first half. "Bam, I'm sure he's in great shape, but he's going to need to be in great shape tomorrow". It was a farce that Kentucky, a rightful No. 2 seed, had to play the Shockers in the second round.

Worlock denied that anyone from NCAA asked Franklin to remove the video.

Wichita State: Marshall referred to Adebayo as "a mountain of a man" and someone the Shockers had to control.

- The Shockers' starting lineup is comprised entirely of underclassmen.

After the game, Franklin was writing his game story when he says two NCAA tournament officials came up to him and demanded he remove the video from his Twitter feed.

- The Wildcats won their third consecutive SEC regular-season championship and their 48th in school history.

Yes, Kentucky's freshman trio did it all.
