PEORIA, Ill. (AP) – Ron Baker scored 15 points to lead four Wichita State players in double figures and the second ranked Shockers became the first Division I team to reach 30-0 in the regular season with a 69-49 victory over Bradley Tuesday night.
Wichita State is the 11th team to reach 30-0, the previous 10 all hitting the 30 win mark during postseason play. The last team to reach 30-0 was UNLV in 1990-91. The Runnin’ Rebels went 34-0 that season before losing to Duke in the national semifinals.
The Shockers (30-0, 17-0 Missouri Valley Conference) have one more regular season game, at home Saturday against Missouri State. The last team to finish a regular season unbeaten was Saint Joseph’s in 2003-04 at 27-0. The next season, Illinois got to 29-0 before losing its regular-season finale at Ohio State.
