All due respect to the Valentine's Day bloodbath tonight between Penn and Princeton
, there's no love lost in the upper reaches of the MVC. After a freaky weekend that saw five road wins, the best (and mathematically strangest) mid-major conference in America still features a four-way tie at the top at 11-4 with three regular-season games remaining.
At No. 29, Creighton is actually fifth in Valley RPI (9-6 Mo-State
has a 25); they're coming off a home loss to Southern Illinois
and will try to lock down WSU with the 26th most efficient D in the country (90.6 rating). Wichita State earned its 20th win of the year
over the weekend, always a good sign when it comes to the NCAA's. They also would seem to have the inside track to the MVC one-seed: the Jays will act as the Shockers' final test of the regular season, before they face Drake and Ill-State to close out the slate. Will the house rock? You bet.
(Note to the 34 U.S. households with ESPNU: you're in luck!)
