Wichita State has been the talk of the tournament so far, knocking out Pittsburgh, Gonzaga, La Salle and Ohio State to reach the national semifinals for the first time since 1965. They are also the first Missouri Valley Conference team to make it this far since Indiana State in 1979.
As for Louisille, this is nothing new for Rick Pitino's squad. The Cardinals are in the Final Four for the second year in a row and 10th time in school history. However, Pitino has yet to win a national title with Louisville, and their last championship was in 1986. They're heavy favorites to end that cold streak this year after steamrolling through North Carolina A&T, Colorado State, Oregon and Duke.
CBS Sports' entire panel of experts is picking Louisville to win this game, and they are 10.5 point favorites to play for the title. By all rights the Cardinals should cruise, but the Shockers have already proven that they can defy the odds. The two teams will tip off at 6:09 P.M. ET on Saturday.
