DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Wichita State kept the Missouri Valley Conference in the 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 even 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, the constant discussion over its weak schedule sullied the Valley's reputation.
