He scored 26 points, but Kelly Olynyk’s performance was not enough to see his Gonzaga Bulldogs past the Wichita State Shockers.

The Shockers, a nine seed, upset the No. 1 seed Bulldogs in the third round of the NCAA Division One Men’s Basketball Championship, winning 76-70 in Salt Lake City, Utah, on Saturday, March 23.

Olynyk, from Kamloops, was 8-20 from the field, grabbed eight rebounds and was 10-14 from the charity stripe.

Many experts are pegging Olynyk, a South Kamloops secondary graduate, to be selected in the first round of this summer’s NBA Draft.
