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...

Part of you wants to reward the last unbeaten for a job well done, for surviving the pitfalls and bad shooting nights and crazy bounces and things like Boston College 62, Syracuse 59, things that just ... happen...
