Wichita State vs. Pittsburgh

I’m looking forward to my first basketball games in the Sprint Center. It can’t be better than the Springsteen concert, but it should be an entertaining evening. Next year at this time, WSU will be in the Lahaina Civic Center in a stacked Maui Invitational field (Kentucky, UConn, Michigan State, Oklahoma etc.).

Pitt coach Jamie Dixon likes the way his team is improving each game.Texas is loaded, I mean loaded, with talent. Playing time is precious.Iowa coach Todd Lickliter hopes his team turns around soon. His football counterpart needed patience.Iowa junior Jarryd Cole is coming home to Kansas City.
