From Rockford to Wichita State, VanVleet shines

WICHITA, Kan. -- Fred VanVleet walks into the training room deep within Koch Arena. He gently pulls off his shirt to reveal a cut-up elbow, a bruised shoulder, a nasty gash on the palm of his hand. He has just led No. 11 Wichita State to a victory over previously unbeaten Seton Hall, and he's certainly worse for the wear. The blood keeps oozing, even as one of the trainers slaps...
