FINALS WATCH: The big slow down

ATLANTA (AP) — Wichita State wanted to make the Final Four a knock-down, drag-out fight, and so far it’s working. The blue-collar team has done a fairly good job the first half of breaking Louisville’s press, and that’s turned the game into a half-court blood-and-guts tussle.

Literally, in the case of Carl Hall.

The Shockers’ high-energy forward spent an entire timeout with a wad of cotton stuck up his nostril after getting a bloody nose during one flurry under the basket.
