Nick Wiggins stood on the court at Koch Arena with one arm around mom, the other around dad, his second-ranked Shockers having just finished a 31-0 regular season.

For once, it was the older brother of Kansas star Andrew Wiggins getting all the attention.

Now, with the NCAA tournament right around the corner, the two brothers — and their teams — are ready to become the story of March.

Wichita State heads into the Missouri Valley Conference tournament this week riding the best start since UNLV in 1991, while the fifth-ranked Jayhawks have wrapped up the outright Big 12 title — the 10th straight championship for the storied program.

If things transpire as most bracketologists believe, Wichita State will be a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament and Kansas a No. 2 seed, the makings of a memorable March for the Wiggins family.
