21 Feb No. 25 WSU Hosts Evansville Tonight at 7pm
Shockers remain tied for first-place heading into the final week of the regular season.
No. 25/25 Wichita State (25-4, 15-1) sends off seniors Zach Bush and John Robert Simon, while continuing its quest for a fifth MVC regular season title in six years,Tuesday evening against Evansville (14-15, 5-11 MVC).
The 7 p.m. CT tip airs on Cox Channel Kansas with Shane Dennis and Bob Hull. Listen to every Shocker game, home and away, on FM 103.7 KEYN and online at goshockers.com/listen. Mike Kennedy — now in his 37th year — will call his 1,205th consecutive game, alongside Dave Dahl.
In the race for first place WSU and Illinois State remain tied heading into the final week of the regular season. Wins over Evansville and Saturday at Missouri State (11 a.m. CT, ESPN2) would guarantee the Shockers at least a share of their fourth-consecutive title. The Redbirds host SIU Wednesday and finish up at UNI on Saturday (1 p.m., CBSSN). If both teams win out, they’ll share the title, with ISU likely earning the No. 1 seed at next week’s MVC Tournament in St. Louis, via tiebreaker (RPI).
