Well, Sunday, we will be getting the game we all wanted to see. Kansas and Wichita State will do battle for the right to be crowned best in the Sunflower State. There's also a spot in the Sweet 16 on the line, by the way.
Kansas got past 15-seed New Mexico State with ease, while Wichita State just held off 10-seed Indiana to advance. The two schools have not played since 1993, supposedly because the Jayhawks don't want to schedule the Shockers.

Prediction: You may want to throw out the actual game analysis for this one. Kansas and Wichita State, who seem to be big-time rivals despite not actually playing each other, are both going to be fired up for this one. It simply may come down to which team wants it more.
Kansas (and its fans) would love nothing more than to notch a victory and hush Shockers supporters. Wichita State craves respect. Who prevails? We'll take the Jayhawks, but it may come down to the final shot.
