Seniors make winning plays throughout win over Wichita State

Wichita State’s Shaquille Morris tries to explain how he was fouled in the first half against Dayton at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis

No, he didn't get 18 rebounds like he did on Friday night. Center Bam Adebayo scored 11 of his 13 points in the second half. "We kept on feeding him the ball inside".

We'll have up-to-the-minute scoring and stats here throughout the game. We're not coming in games thinking just because we're young we're going to lay down to just a more physical and older team. "We're ready and we'll be ready to play [Sunday]".

De'Aaron Fox had a couple huge one-handed dunks in Kentucky's 65-62 escape of a fiery Wichita State team during the Round of 32 in the NCAA Tournament in Indianapolis on Sunday afternoon, and one of those came off jumping the passing lane and breaking out to slam one home to send Big Blue Nation into a frenzy. "I know that we have the heart of a champion". "We may be all freshmen, but it doesn't matter". The Wolverines had a plane mishap before arriving in Washington for the Big Ten tournament, then won four games in four days for the automatic bid.

As Wichita State tried to conjure a game-tying 3-pointer in the final 10 seconds, Hawkins was defending Shockers point guard Landry Shamet, who had 20 points and nailed a 3-pointer that made this a one-possession game inside the final minute.

According to Franklin, an NCAA official stopped by his spot on press row-he was seated at the end of the row behind the Wichita State bench, right next to Lynn-and asked him to stop tweeting about her because "she saw it and she is upset". Malik Monk, the Wildcats' freshman guard, responded quickly to the shot and knocked it away. "It's on me", Shamet said. "They pump faked, Dom jumped, so I was like, I gotta jump". "And I encourage the NFLPA and the NFL to continue working together in their efforts to make the game of football safer, especially as it relates to head trauma".

There were a few brief moments when it appeared Adebayo might not be on the floor in the clutch. The thousands of United Kingdom fans in attendance collectively held their breath, but Adebayo only had one thing on his mind at first.

One staple that we know of Marshall is that he likes to go after junior college talent.

After losing Fred VanVleet and Ron Baker from last year's team, Wichita State clearly grew over the course of this season, dominating most of the competition behind players like the freshman Shamet, the sophomore McDuffie and the junior Morris. It averaged nine blocks per game and averaged 35 defensive rebounds the first weekend. "(I) just played solid and contested well". Trash talking is not for me. I just stick with my teammates and we get things done. "We had a team we really thought could go far".

The soft-spoken Adebayo wasn't about to engage in any back-and-forth, not even after United Kingdom eliminated the Shockers.

Adebayo isn't shy about discussing his love for his mother or the way she sacrificed to help him pursue his dreams.

"I'm blessed to have a mom because some people don't have mothers in this world", Adebayo said. "I will give them that". They'll never learn what a mom's love feels like. "My ultimate hope is that eventually I can assist in finding a cure for ALS, which disrupts the lives of so many and their loved ones". "We knew they was going to shoot a 3".
