Weather forces Wichita State to travel on game day


According to Andy Katz of ESPN, the undefeated Wichita State Shockers (23-0) will be forced to travel on game day for their contest against the Indiana State Sycamores (17-5) on Wednesday (Feb. 5).  Their fight on Tuesday was cancelled because of a snow storm.

Katz says, “traveling the day of a game is not rare. Louisville coach Rick Pitino prefers doing so when he can.”

Wichita State must be mentally prepared for their road game against Indiana State.  The Sycamores are second in the Missouri Valley Conference behind the Shockers.

Beating Wichita State would place Indiana State in the conversation for a bid to the NCAA tournament.  There is a lot riding on the game for both teams, so it should be a high intensity matchup.

Wichita State has been dominate in the Missouri Valley with a conference record of 10-0.  The closest game was on January 11th, when the Shockers defeated Missouri State 72-69 in overtime.

The game airs on ESPN3 at 8:05 ET on Wednesday (February 5th).
