    We witnessed college basketball history on Tuesday night. You might not have noticed it happened, but it certainly did happen. No. 2 Wichita State — the most over-analyzed team in the country — moved to 30-0 with yet another dominating win in the Missouri Valley, this one coming by a final margin of 69-49 at…

    Game of the day: Wichita State 69, Bradley 49 The No. 2 ranked Shockers had little trouble notching their 30th regular season victory, dispatching Bradley summarily and with ease as Ron Baker led all scorers with 15 points and the team converted 48 percent from long-range. Gregg Marshall’s squad is now the first in men’s…

    Bradley attempted to slow down Wichita State tonight. The Braves’ thought-process was that through controlling the tempo, the Shockers might be caught unawares. However, as Gregg Marshall’s squad demonstrated throughout the 2014 season, this is a special group, and Wichita State defeated the Braves, 69-49 (Geno Ford’s team is now 12-18, 7-10 in Missouri Valley…

    When it comes to the national title chances of No. 4 Wichita State, many detractors rush to point out the fact that they play in a Missouri Valley Conference that isn’t as strong as it’s been in years past. While there may be some truth to that, with No. 18 Creighton’s move to the Big…

    Tuesday night wasn’t the best performance from No. 4 Wichita State. But like the previous 25 games it ended with a Shockers victory. Wichita State trailed Southern Illinois by one at halftime, allowed too much dribble penetration on defense, shot 2-for-14 from beyond the arc in the first half and got a bad outing from…

    College basketball saw 16 of the AP’s top 25 lose last week, but last year’s surprise Final Four entrant, Wichita State, was not among that group of teams.

    For the fourth-ranked Wichita State Shockers, Saturday’s game against Evansville represented a stiffer test than some may have realized. Marty Simmons’ Purple Aces beat the Shockers twice last season, and despite the graduation of Colt Ryan (he scored 29 in the win at Wichita State) Evansville had another capable scoring guard in D.J. Balentine. Balentine…

    The prospect of an athletic department losing money during postseason play isn’t all that shocking, as it’s something we’ve become used to seeing in major college football. But this isn’t seen to be the case in college basketball, with their being four postseason events (as opposed to 35 bowl games) and the NCAA tournament raking…
