Shockers Set Sights On MVC Tournament After Undefeated Regular Season
The Wichita State Shockers have made history by becoming the first men's basketball team in NCAA history to win 31-regular season games. The Shockers achieved this record on Saturday by beating Missouri State 68-45.
The sold out arena was a sea of black and gold cladded fans chanting "undefeated" as they lift up signs that read 31-0. The Wichita State Shockers becomes the first team since St. Joseph's in 2004 to head into a conference tournament unbeaten.
"They enjoy one and done basketball like we are going into now," Coach Greg Marshall says. "They embrace the work ethic and that's how you achieve something like this. They're really an easy group to coach and they just happened to be very team-oriented and talented."
The Shockers are off to the best start since UNLV began a 34-0 run and lost in the 1991 national championship game. The Shockers are the top seed in the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament in St. Louis this week.
