WICHITA, Kan. (AP) Playing in front of a spirited crowd in one of the biggest home games in school history, Wichita State responded.
Ron Baker scored 17 points and Fred VanVleet added 13 to help the 11th-ranked Shockers beat No. 10 Northern Iowa 74-60 on Saturday and win the Missouri Valley Conference regular season title for a second straight season.
"Combined with `College GameDay' being here, a top-10 opponent, playing for a championship, I've coached 17 years and this is the biggest regular-season home game I've ever had," Shockers coach Gregg Marshall. "Our team responded. And our fans responded. It was electric."
