ST. LOUIS (AP) - Wichita State goes for the first 35-0 start in NCAA men's basketball history on the same court where the top-seeded Shockers won their last three games.
Almost as good as home cooking.
After snipping down the nets as Missouri Valley Conference tournament title champs with a ninth straight double-digit win, coach Gregg Marshall predicted a return trip to St. Louis allowing players to sleep in the same hotel beds, revisit the scene of that success and play before a massive, mobile yellow-clad fan base again for the 1 vs. 16 Midwest Regional matchup against Cal Poly on Friday night.
The team with the best record in the field draws the lone sub-.500 entrant, on paper not much of a deterrent to a victory that would top UNLV's 34-0 start in 1990-91. Cal Poly (14-19) is plenty happy to get a chance to shoot for the stars.
