Shockers Shocked At Home. During Creighton’s recent four-of-six loss skid, conversation conveniently pointed towards the Shockers as the chief competition in the Missouri Valley. The timing was optimal, or something close to it. As Creighton sank further and further towards bubble uneasiness, Wichita pulled out of its own three-game losing streak to rip off five straight victories. The last of those was a national Bracketbusters dumptrucking of Detroit. What followed was a two game schedule, one half mellow (Evansville at home) the other challenging (at Creighton). The latter, in light of Creighton’s competitive motivations, could be the game of the year in this league. That is what happens when two good teams move into a tie for first place with one final grudge match remaining between them. The three-point home loss poorly on the Shockers, but the fans won’t complain: Saturday’s meeting in Omaha won’t just be a really competitive game between the two best teams in the MVC. It will decide first place, along with seeding supremacy in Arch Madness. I can’t wait.
