The best road record in the Missouri Valley Conference and the highest RPI of any of the Valley teams, the Shockers have earned that top spot in the conference.
But all they had to do to earn it was watch TV as Evansville beat Missouri State Wednesday night, breaking the tie between the Bears and the Shockers atop the standings.
Wichita State (19-4, 10-2 MVC) were tied on with Missouri State on Sunday after their loss to Northern Iowa, but now that they have lost two in a row, the top is all for WSU.
UNI and MSU are tied for second with 9-3 records.
WSU hosts Illinois State (11-12, 3-9 MVC) on Saturday at the Roundhouse. Tip off set for 7 p.m.
