DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Wichita State kept the Missouri Valley Conference in the national spotlight last season with a 35-0 start, the best ever in Division I.
The Shockers did so at the expense of nine league rivals who didn't come close to an NCAA tournament bid.
Wichita State went 21-0 against league opponents in 2013-14 - and 18 of those victories were by at least 10 points. Though Wichita State gave the Valley a boost by earning a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament, there was constant discussion over its weak league schedule.
This offseason, everyone else in the Valley is focused on closing the gap with the Shockers.
