No. 1o Wichita State took down No. 7 Dayton in the first round of the NCAA Tournament from Indianapolis extending a 16 game winning streak. The Shockers dominated the glass out rebounding the Flyers 40/24 utilizing Rashard Kelly off the bench who grabbed nine boards.
But with Wichita State moving on, more attention has been focused on their namesake.
A Shocker… What the hell is a shocker besides the obvious?
Dad: does anybody else find it inappropriate that Wichita State's mascot is the shocker?
My grandma: what's a shocker?

I guess there’s a connection to Donald Trump in more ways than one. I wonder if the mascot likes tic-tacs?
