2013 Top Athletic News—Wichita State Shockers: Year of the Final Four

After 48 years and in a season that saw the March Madness collapses of both "major" Kansas basketball powers, Wichita State University was the surprising home of the men's basketball team that best represented to the world that Kansas is the home of basketball. For anyone watching all season long, what the Shockers did was no shock to you. They were meant to be there.

Right: Seven-footer Ehimen Orukpe almost fills the lane while the surrounding players shrink back from the force of his vicious dunk. Following: Cleanthony Early, the highest scoring and likely the most valuable player in the 2013 Final Four, plays for Wichita State University.

2013 Top Athletic News—KCAC Basketball Championships

One of the most emotional stories of the year came to a conclusion at the KCAC Basketball Championships. Early in the season, the team that began the season on top of the rankings, Southwestern, was dethroned by a surpising rising power in Kansas basketball, Tabor. Last year Tabor was ranked next-to-last in the conference rankings by the end of the season. One year later, a new head coach and a huge number of new faces were among the changes at Tabor, including the KCAC newcomer of the year and player of the year, who led the conference in almost every statistical category until being sidelined by a tragic ACL injury. This news was good for Southwestern who had been overpowered by Tabor in the teams' first matchup, but turned that around to win by 30 points when Tabor was without its leading player.

After four previous times of making it to the KCAC championships and losing, Southwestern was able to at last seal its first-ever championship after previously #1-ranked Tabor lost the player of the year to injury and after the new #1-ranked Friends was knocked out by Kansas Wesleyan. But nothing was there to lessen the glory of the championship victory for Southwestern, as they blew out the Coyotes in the championship 90-65. Poetic justice was served since the Coyotes were the team that knocked out Friends, while Friends was the only team able to narrowly beat Tabor during the time when Tabor was still fielding its star player.

Terrence Moore gets a breakaway left-handed dunk on March 9, 2012, a lasting image of the incredible 4-year run of Heights High School state championships. Truly, these years are some of the heights of Heights.

Both the Heights boys and girls varsity teams went on to win their respective state champions for successive years. For the Heights boys, it was their fourth state championship, coinciding with the four years that the phenomenal basketball sensation Perry Ellis contributed to the team. Before Perry's era, the last and only state championship for the Heights boys was in 1977.

Lucky Numbers #23 Joyea Marshall of Wichita Heights

Joyea Marshall Jump Ball

Joyea Marshall of Wichita Heights performs an amazing simulation of a jump ball, only in the paint during the game instead of at half court at the beginning of the game. The other girl participating is Riley White, of Olathe South. It's a good sign that Joyea shares the number of some other famous ballers, like Pete Maravich and Michael Jordan, who both made #23 something extra special.

And what really makes this photo sing and the symphony play is the poetic justice of #22 being juxtaposed with #23. It just couldn't have happened any other way.
