Syracuse Beat Marquette

NCAA Tournament – Syracuse & Wichita State Make it Into the Final Four

Posted on 31 Mar, 2013, by in NBA

The first half of the Elite Eight weekend began with one very surprising result, as Wichita State didn’t just play better defense than the Buckeyes from Ohio State, but actually beat them to make their first final four in nearly 50 years.
