You could see it was going to be a problem for La Salle from the opening tip. The basket on both ends of Staples Center was 10 feet from the floor and Wichita State players were always closer to it. The four-guard rotation that got La Salle to the Sweet 16 stopped the Explorers from reaching the Elite Eight. Wichita State's wall was just too much in a game that has always favored taller people. The Shockers also had too much energy and depth. Wichita State jumped La Salle early and basically cruised to a 72-58 win Thursday night to advance to Saturday's West Regional final.
