Looking ahead to Saturday's game between No. 9 seed Wichita State and No. 2 Ohio State, it's noteworthy that since 1980, teams seeded ninth or lower are 3-13 in regional finals.

But don't lose hope, Shockers fans. Since 2006, low seeds are 2-1 in Elite Eight games.

In `06, No. 11 George Mason — which beat Wichita State in the Shockers' last appearance in the round of 16 — upset No. 1 Connecticut. No. 11 VCU did the same to No. 1 Kansas two seasons ago.
