LIFE IS FULL of unexpected surprises.
Just ask Wichita State coach Gregg Marshall, whose Shockers are in the NCAA Final Four after winning the West Regional with victories over Pittsburgh, Gonzaga, La Salle and Ohio State.
Prior to Selection Sunday, Marshall canceled his trip to Atlanta - site of the Final Four - so that he could attend his daughter's volleyball tournament in Kansas City.
"Lynn [Marshall's wife] and I just looked at each other and said, 'You know what, we're not going to the Final Four this year,' " Marshall told Bob Lutz of the Wichita Eagle. "We'll go to Napa or somewhere later on, a beach vacation, but we're just not gonna go to the Final Four. The seats they give you in those domed stadiums - you can't even see the games."
