WICHITA STATE RUMORS

Witchita St's Cleanthony Early falls on face after dunk attempt

Wichita State’s Cleanthony Early didn’t win last night’s college basketball dunk contest with this attempt (Eastern Kentucky’s Marcus Lewis won). However, outside of Adreian Payne’s two-handed 360 flush, Early easily had the most entertaining dunk attempt on the night. [GIFdsports] The post Cleanthony Early Falls on his Face after Dunk Attempt Fail appeared first on Diehardsport.

Here are three things we gleaned from Kentucky's 78-76 victory over top-seeded and previously undefeated Wichita State -- an epic Round of 32 clash that truly had the feel of a regional final.

Who'll be the next Shockers superhero? Maybe someone you'd never expect

ST. LOUIS, Mo. -- The best steps in the Dance are the ones nobody saw coming, the Daytons, the Harvards, and every dreamer in between. The best moments are reserved for the stars who bolt straight from the back of the chorus to center stage when the spotlight turns on them. Ty Rogers, Western Kentucky's fourth option, beats plucky Drake at Tampa in 2008 on a prayer at the buzzer...

Wichita State coach taking road less traveled to top

ST. LOUIS -- To understand Gregg Marshall is to understand that he's a product of his past. The leader of unbeaten Wichita State wasn't born into coaching with a silver spoon. He didn't learn at the knee of Bob Knight or Mike Krzyzewski, or lean on a resume line that might read "UCLA" or "Kentucky" to climb the coaching ladder. No, Marshall was a skinny...

Shockers gearing up for 'that one last tournament,' this time with even bigger head of steam

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- New year. Same song. "What's different now?" Gregg Marshall asks, repeating the question. The Wichita State basketball coach pauses, and offers this: "Well, for the first time in 27 years, we have our name already up there as an automatic qualifier.

Hate the journey, but don't hate the playa: Wichita's 31-0 Shockers are now a part of history

They'll point to 105. Of course they will. The pundits, the doubters, that "Hallelujah" chorus of haters. That's the ranking of Wichita State's strength of schedule. They'll point to two. The Jayhawks people, especially. As in the number of Shockers wins over teams ranked within the Ratings Percentage Index Top 50. They'll point to 11. The Creighton...

Why Does Everyone Hate Wichita State?

    The Wichita State Shockers just won their 30th game in a row to move to, yes, 30-0 on the season. Throw everything else in this post out the window; 30-0 is a great record. A team doesn't get to 30-0 without being very good, but it doesn't get to 30-0 without luck as well. Wichita State had some luck in close games, as do all teams who win close games...
