Perry Ellis leads Kansas’ 30-point rout of TCU

Here is the truth about Perry Ellis: He may be the worst smiler in college basketball, if such a term or honor even exists. They come about once a month, it seems, about as often as 60 degree days in a subarctic Kansas winter.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. Michael O'Donnell is prescient and thrilled and, to be honest, a little bit miserable. Because the closer his Wichita State Shockers get to national respect, he fears, the farther they drift from making his dream a reality. "Yeah, this will probably divide it even further," chuckles O'Donnell, the Kansas state senator from Wichita who drew headlines...
