Wichita State’s Gabe Blair didn’t go through shoot-around. I don’t expect him to play tonight. He and David Kyles are in sweat clothes as the other Shockers in uniform filter out to start warmups.
Bradley’s Taylor Brown, suspended last game for inappropriate Twittering, is warming up. Expect him to play. Around the Valley
Northern Iowa is asking itself what happened and what it means after losing to last-place Evansville. I don’ t think it will cost UNI an NCAA berth, but it’s a bad loss that will cost it when seeds are handed out. Not what the MVC needed. Evansville won its first game over q ranked opponent since 2003. Creighton guard Antoine Young is a Saluki killer. The final memory of old SIU Arena is a loss to the Bluejays.
