WICHITA, Kan. – Wichita State released its 2016-17 Missouri Valley Conference men’s basketball schedule, Tuesday.
WSU will open and close on the road, beginning Dec. 28 at Indiana State and finishing up Feb. 25 at Missouri State. The Shockers’ Valley home opener comes New Year’s Day against Bradley, and Senior Night is booked for Tuesday, Feb. 21 vs. Evansville.
The MVC and its national and regional broadcast partners, including ESPN, CBS Sports Network, Fox Sports Midwest and Comcast SportsNet Chicago, will announce television schedules in early October, with game times to follow.
Last year WSU became just the third Valley school since World War II to finish alone atop the standings in three consecutive seasons, joining Cincinnati (1958-59-60-61) and Southern Illinois (2003-04-05). The Shockers’ 51 conference wins over that span is the most ever by an MVC school in a three-year period.
