Yes and No.
Yes in that they lost at Drake who I believe was picked last in the conference
No in that Illinois State beat them at Loyola
I think Illinois State could beat Wichita this year because of their experience and guard play. I could be wrong, but I have seen both teams play a few times and even though Wichita is long and athletic they are very young and not near the level or athleticism at guard compared to Illnois State who seems to be to be tougher with the experience edge and desire to overcome one of their big rivals in the Shockers.
We will know soon enough....Mark your calendars..January 14th Shockers at Illinois State on ESPN2 at 7pm after our 1pm home matchup vs SIU.
