And the Wichita State Shockers: #9 Seed.
No disrespect meant to the Cinderella of this year's tournament but these guys are most similar to the Freys. I hate to compare the savvy Gregg Marshall to the lecherous Walder Frey BUT both men thrive with a soupcon of resources and absolutely define their respective fiefdoms. Given some spectacular conniving, it wouldn't be a surprise if the Freys were also nicknamed the Shockers. Wichita State shares proximity with basketball superpower Kansas University and upstart Kansas State but manages to hold its own as do the Freys against the Tullys and Reeds.
My strong hope is that Martells and Syracuse come out of this thing alive because as much as I love an underdog, I can't pull for the Freys.
