Kansas forward Perry Ellis (34) throws down a dunk off of a lob pass over TCU guard Trey Zeigler (32) during the second half, Saturday, Feb. 21, 2015 at Allen Fieldhouse.

With one hand, Perry Ellis corralled an alley-oop pass and hammered it through the net. And, upset of all upsets, the junior forward from Wichita who is so stoic he makes the guards at the Buckingham Palace seem like drama queens by comparison, cracked a smile. By Tom Keegan
