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.

A newcomer's guide to Wichita State

Q: Wichita State ... Wichita State ... where have I heard that name before? A: Last March, probably. They're the team that came out of nowhere -- and by nowhere, we mean southern Kansas -- and reduced your carefully-crafted bracket to tiny salt pellets.
