Loyola coach Porter Moser finally faced the facts after Loyola limped to a poor loss Sunday at Southern Illinois. His star player, sophomore guard Milton Doyle, is just not the same after re-injuring his ankle nine days ago in a loss to Wichita State.
“I’ve got to just sit him,” Moser said on Loyola radio. “His ankle is just so bad. People have no idea how bad his ankle...

I was supposed to compete in Wichita State University’s first annual Beer Mile. That was 8 years, hundreds of miles, and dozens and dozens of pounds ago. While I considered myself to be among the potential favorites in the event, due to both my high volume of repeat miles and repeat Bud Light, I made [&hellip

When the Wichita State Shockers and Utah Utes were getting set for the game to start Wednesday night the ref was probably thinking something like "I hope I throw the ball straight up" or "my knees hurt" or "these vertical stripes sure are slimming." They probably don't think "Gee, I sure hope one of these giant kids drops a massive elbow on my head."But for one poor guy that is exactly...

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.
What better way to characterize a classic game, with Kentucky (54 percent) and Wichita State (55 percent) both posting stellar shooting averages in St. Louis:
1. Kentucky played the more complete...
CBS Sports found another crying fan to fixate on, this time a Wichita State Shockers girl.
Many predicted this as a possible round of 32 match-up, and the selection committee has made it so. No. 1 seed Wichita State took care of Cal Poly, while Kentucky won a low scoring affair against Kansas State, preventing a Sunflower State showdown. The winner of this one will meet Louisville in the Sweet 16.

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.
