Two Division-I teams were undefeated a few weeks ago. One of them, Syracuse, lost twice in one week—Jim Boeheim lost his mind as well. The other one, Wichita State, still has a "0" in that lost column as of today. The Shockers beat their last opponent of the regular season today, so undefeated they remain.
Wichita State has been an underrated team, but at least it could boast about being the first undefeated team in 10 years. That tough defense helped the Shockers out again against Missouri State en route to a 68-45 win.
Here are the last five teams to go undefeated in the regular season, according to CBS Sports:
- 2004: Saint Joseph's (27-0)
- 1991: UNLV (27-0)
- 1979: Indiana State (29-0)
- 1979: Alcorn State (27-0)
- 1976: Rutgers (28-0)
- 1976: Indiana (27-0)
Wichita State does have the league tournament and the NCAA tournament to worry about as well. The next best team is the unranked, 21-9 Indiana State, so the Shockers worst opponents is their possible mistakes.
