WICHITA, Kansas — The Shockers are in the record books after winning game number 30 Tuesday night.

It’s been kind of a history lesson for college basketball fans. 25 teams have completed undefeated regular seasons but none of those teams have ever won 30 games before the postseason.

Tuesday night, with a 69-49 victory over Bradley, the Shockers put themselves in the history books and moved their record to 30-0.

“Of the previous 11 to get to 30-0, all 11 made the Elite Eight, 10 of the 11 made the Final Four and 6 of them won the whole thing,” said Mike Kennedy, the voice of the Shockers. “There’s so much excitement it’s just unbelievable. Especially as a follow-up to the Final Four run last year.

That Final Four run, Mike Kennedy and many others believe gives Wichita State’s streak some credibility but there are some skeptics still.
