Asked where KU fans were when TCU upset #5 Kansas - most fans will tell you, others will say they woke up to the shock this morning. That's where a matchup between the Jayhawks and Horned Frogs registered before Wednesday night. TCU led by as many as 16 against Kansas before winning 62-55, giving KU back to back losses for the first time in seven years. Let that sink in for a second: first back to back loss for Kansas in nearly seven years. College basketball is a game where teams go through lulls and highs, runs of wins and losses but Kansas hasn't dropped back to back games in nearly seven years.

A woman survives a fall out of a fifth floor window at Wichita State University.  Investigators are still looking into how she fell.  It happened around 4:00 Tuesday afternoon at the Wheatshocker Apartments, on the far southeast side of campus. Emergency crews were called to the buildings around 4:30 in the afternoon with news that a woman had fallen some 40 feet out a window. “She had somehow fallen out of the window, was holding on to the ledge and… and two individuals who saw it, one on the golf course, one walking up to the building, were calling for assistance,” said Wade Robinson, Vice-President of Campus Life at WSU. Before help could arrive at the Wheatshocker apartments where the 27-year-old woman lived she lost her hold on the ledge and fell to an awning below.
