WICHITA, Kansas -- The Wichita State Shockers men's basketball team lived up to its name with a shocking 70-66 victory over 2-seed Ohio State on Saturday for a trip to the Final Four.
Now, fans back in Wichita are lining up to wear their pride on their sleeves, literally.
Dozens of people lined up outside Tad's Locker Room at 21st St. and Webb Rd. on Sunday morning to get a piece of college basketball history.
"It was a big line, but it went through good, and we've got our shirts and were ready to wear them out," said Aaron Green, Shockers fan.
It has been almost 50 years since the Shockers last made the Final Four in 1965.
Now, they're headed back for just the second time in school history.
"Once the shirts are gone, they're gone. They don't reprint them again. You've gotta get them while it's hot," said Tad Snarenberger, Tad's Locker Room.
Snarenberger drove up to a distributor in Lawrence overnight. He came back with 2,000 shirts.
He knows it won't be enough.
Tad's and other sports wear shops around Wichita will be getting fresh supplies in every day knowing they'll sell out fast.
"It's history. The Shocker fans want to represent. It's time! It's been along time since we've been in the tournament this deep," said Snarenberger.
The Shockers will head to Atlanta to take on Louisville, Saturday, Apr. 6 at 5:09 p.m.
