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

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. Five years later...

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. The Shockers were the Cinderella story of the 2013 NCAA Tournament, entering Bracketville as a 9 seed and knocking off Pittsburgh...

Rivals and friends: Wiggins brothers have been a bridge between Jayhawks and Shockers

LAWRENCE, Kan. -- Before he was on the cover of Sports Illustrated, before he was anointed as the Second Coming, before he was built up and torn down more times than a Vegas casino, Andrew Wiggins was Little Bro. To the Wichita State basketball team, he was brother Nick's right-hand man (and vice versa), the guy who turned up and played "NBA 2K" and "Call of Duty...

Video: It’s Almost Unfair How Easy It Is For Wichita State’s Tekele Cotton To Catch Alley-Oops

Big brother says Andrew Wiggins can handle the spotlight

KANSAS CITY, Mo. Make him go right. You ask. Nick Wiggins laughs. It's a big brother's laugh, the laugh of a cat who has done it 500 times on 500 different driveways. A cat who doesn't see the No. 1 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, but a 10-year-old in a man's body, always tagging along, always trying to prove he can play with the big kids. "Make him go right...
