MVC basketball schedule

As of Thursday afternoon, Wichita State was still waiting on the men’s basketball schedule from the Missouri Valley Conference. Once the Valley gets it to the schools, it generally takes a day or two for the schools to check things out, approve it and release it.

The holdup in St. Louis is ESPN, which is still putting together its college basketball lineup for this season. Looks like it will be next week at the earliest.

WSU is also waiting on the CBE Classic to finalize its schedule. We know WSU will play Pitt and either Texas or Iowa in Kansas City. We don’t know which two teams will come to Wichita in mid-November.

We did get a date for WSU’s game against South Carolina-Upstate – Dec. 5 at Koch Arena.

I bet WSU coach Gregg Marshall tries to make this – John Kresse is one of his biggest influences. He coached with Kresse for eight seasons at the College of Charleston.

Schedule update:

Nov. 7 vs.  Newman (exhibition)

Nov. 15-18 CBE Classic at Koch Arena

Nov. 23 vs. Pitt at CBE Classic in Kansas City

Nov. 24 at CBE Classic in Kansas City (vs. Texas or Iowa)

Nov. 28 at Cleveland State

Dec. 5 vs. South Carolina-Upstate

Dec. 9 at UMKC

Dec. 12 vs. TCU

Dec. 19 vs. Texas Tech
