ATLANTA (AP) — Wichita State's Malcolm Armstead went 0 for 6 in the first half, but he finally got on the board with a driving layup early in the second.
The Shockers are doing everything they need to do tonight except shoot well. They'll probably need to knock down a few more 3-pointers to hold on, but this is starting to look more promising for them — with Russ Smith picking up his third foul.
Looks like Rick Pitino is leaving Smith in for now.
