Wichita State Makes it 34-0, Wins Valley Tourney

Associated Press - March 10, 2014 6:10 am

ST. LOUIS (AP) – Fred VanVleet scored 22 points including several key baskets late to lead another strong ensemble effort and No. 2 Wichita State remained the nation’s lone unbeaten after defeating Indiana State 83-69 on Sunday in the Missouri Valley Conference tournament final.

Tekele Cotton added 20 points – with four 3-pointers – and Ron Baker had 14 points for the Shockers, who got tested in the second half before putting the title game out of reach with a 13-0 run capped by two 3-pointers from VanVleet that put them up by 18 points with 5:38 to go.

Wichita State matched the NCAA record for victories to start the season held by UNLV in 1990-91 with its third straight convincing tournament win after going 18-0 in the conference regular season. The Shockers won their first conference tournament since 1987.

Manny Arop and Justin Gant had 18 points apiece for second-seeded Indiana State, which has one of the closer calls against Wichita State with a seven-point loss at home in early February.
