ISU Improves to 10-0 in the Valley


Illinois State led for all but 22 seconds in a 69-59 victory at Evansville to win 11-straight games and improve to 10-0 in the Missouri Valley Conference for the first time in program history Sunday afternoon at the Ford Center.

The Redbirds (18-4, 10-0 MVC) surpassed their previous program-best start to an MVC season, which was 9-0 before suffering a loss during the 1982-83 season. Illinois State also won its sixth-consecutive road game, which marked ISU’s longest single-season road winning streak since earning six-straight road victories during the 1960-61 campaign.

Sunday in Peoria, Bradley led Wichita State 25-20 at halftime, but the Shockers rallied for a 64-49 win.
