Hard work has shaped Wichita State

It was the middle of winter in Wichita, and Gregg Marshall gathered his Wichita State team in the film room to show them what he called the "play of the year." At this point in the season, things were looking surprisingly good for a team that wasn't supposed to do too much.

Wichita State Shockers mascot WuShock’s nose quite phallic in nature (photos)

On Saturday, April 6, the surprising Wichita State Shockers, who came in a 9th-seed in the West region, will take on the Louisville Cardinals in a Final Four match-up in Atlanta’s Georgia Dome. Presumably along for the ride and to cheer on the squad will be WuShock, the school’s bizarre mascot. I mean, look at the thing’s nose. It’s not just me — and I have to assume I’m...

Wichita State's Hall seeing clearly for Shockers

Carl Hall positions himself down on the block, spins to catch a pass and scores off a layin. That sequence ran on a loop in the opening minutes of Wichita State's regional semifinal against La Salle. He scored 10 of the Shockers' first 14 points, setting a dominant tone that carried them to a 72-58 victory and within a game of reaching the school's first Final Four since...

Tebow gives speech to Wichita State

Tim Tebow just can’t stop giving inspirational speeches. The homeless QB’s plane stopped in Wichita on Sunday to get some gas and it just happened that he timed the stop perfectly.

Early embraces Wichita State and vice versa

WICHITA, Kan. Jamel would've turned 35 on Wednesday. Sandra Glover worries, as she does every time March 20 rolls around, what this will do to Cleanthony, how much it chews him up from the inside, little piece by little piece. "He said, one time that, It's the one thing I wish I could do: I want to continue to play, but I wish I could bring you back, my brother, to...

Shockers won't let injuries become an excuse

Fortune favors the bold, abandons the timid, and seems to enjoy kicking Gregg Marshall square in the backside. Over the span of a few days in December, Wichita State lost its leading scorer (Carl Hall) to a broken thumb; arguably its best 3-point ace (Ron Baker) to a stress fracture in the foot; and another outside threat (Evan Wessel) to a broken pinky finger. Three starters, kaput...
