NCAA PREDICTION - Final 4 in Atlanta With Shockers & Cardinals

The Wichita State Shockers were not supposed to be here. The Louisville Cardinals are the best team in the NCAA tournament right now. Will we see a surprise on Saturday?

Even an online horse betting guru with a limited awareness of college basketball's finer points would say that Wichita State has a chance here. One thing to realize about college basketball at this time of the season is that seeds are just numbers and little else.
