Some of the state’s newspapers have joined The Wichita Eagle in celebrating the Wichita State University Shockers’ unexpected run to the Final Four. The Garden City Telegram urged all Kansans to get behind the Shockers, also calling for regular WSU games against the University of Kansas and Kansas State University. Dubbing WSU “the little Kansas team that could,” the Salina Journal editorialized: “With KU and K-State falling by the wayside – K-State a one-and-done and KU kicking away a huge lead against a frantic Michigan team in the Sweet 16 – we’re all Shocker fans now, or should be.” The Hays Daily News said: “The school with fewer than 15,000 students is more renowned for its bowling teams. The men and women pinstrikers have won 19 national titles since 1975. This year’s basketball team will change that reputation.”
