KU, WSU fans flock to apparel stores in preparation for Sunflower State showdown
The Sunflower State showdown is set.

KU and Wichita state will play Sunday afternoon in the next round of the NCAA tournament.

In preparation for the game, many fans set out to pick up some gear for their respective teams.

Long time KU fan Dick Stephens couldn�t resist stopping at Kansas Sampler Rally House to add to his large collection of Jayhawk shirts.

�My wife says there are 112 shirts in our closet, so yeah I like apparel,� said Stephens.

Katherine Eppich Catlin with Kansas Sampler says they�ve seen a steady crowd of both KU and WSU fans coming in, buying whatever they could get their hands on.

�Especially with my KU fans, I�m getting a lot the retro, vintage looks, for my ladies, especially for Wichita State they�re still going for the bling, the glitter, something a little more flashy,� said Eppich Catlin.

Eppich Catlin says they had about a hundred bragging rights shirts that sold out first thing Saturday morning.

Overall, she says the apparel battle between both fan bases is pretty even.

�I would actually really say it�s about half and half, both teams are very consistent in their fans,� said Eppich Catlin.

Just down the road at Tad�s Locker Room, some WSU fans have had trouble finding what they are looking for.

�They were sold out, so I�m out of luck,� said Lynne Margolis, a long time WSU fan.

The store says they sold out of hundreds of different KU/WSU tournament shirts within ten minutes of opening their doors at both of their locations.

Jesus Diaz, a manager at Tad�s east location, says they�ve sold Shocker gear at a much larger rate than KU.

�If I had to put it in a ratio, It would be 85-15 more Shocker fans than KU fans,� said Diaz.

Diaz explained his reasoning on why he thinks more Shocker gear is being sold.

�It�s got to be that hometown feel you know, a lot of townies, people got to represent,� said Diaz.

Officials with Kansas Sampler Rally House say they�re ordering more of there bragging rights shirts and hope to have them by the time their doors open tomorrow morning.

Tad�s Locker Room says they won�t have more shirts until after the game tomorrow.
