Oh, and Wichita State was SHOCKED AGAIN! The shocking shock of a loss for the Shockers came at the hands of the shockingly-good USC Trojans. USC's Nick Young had a shocking 24 points, and celebrated by doing some shocking of a different kind. Frankly, I'm shocked.
Every other active team in the Top 25 rolled, including UCLA, Wisconsin, Pitt, Alabama, Kansas, LSU, Memphis, Clemson, Oregon, and Michigan State.
