How to Dress for: The Creighton-Wichita State Game

Creighton Wichita State College Basketball Rivalry

The Creighton-Wichita State rivalry is a relatively young one.  Though the two teams have been members of the Missouri Valley Conference from 1945 to 1948 and then again since 1976, the rivalry only really started to take off in the early 2000’s.  At the time Creighton (along with Southern Illinois) was the top dog in the conference and new Wichita State coach Mark Turgeon set out to unseat the favorites.  The focus fueled the rivalry as both teams have emerged as mid-major powers in arguably one of the best mid-major conferences.

Saturday’s match up is the final game of the regular season for each team, the second time they’ve met this year (Wichita won 67-64 on January 19) and the 99th overall meeting between the two (Creighton holds the all-time lead, 52-46).  While both teams are pretty much locks to make the tourney, they’ve been heading in different directions over the past month.  Creighton has lost four of its last six while Wichita State has won five in a row (after losing three in a row prior to the current streak).  Expect a contentious contest between two Midwestern mid-major powers that will make for some must-watch Saturday basketball.

    When are we going to see a “What to wear to the SLU-School X” feature? SLU’s tops in the A-10 with only five losses and victories over several teams already featured. After the Butler win they’re no. 18 in the country. Show the Bills some love!

      Ouch that hurts, me being a Butler grad and all. It’s about time they get some love on the blog (and in the polls) but I’m having a tough time figuring out who SLU’s rivals are. Any help?

      • Tim says:

        Now that’s a tough one. Xavier is honestly our biggest rival, with Dayton a close second. Butler was obviously hotly contested but too new to the conference to have a true rivalry. Guess we’re in a pickle since both Xavier and Dayton have already been featured.

    I love that you show respect to midwestern mid-major schools. It would be great to see University of Detroit Mercy featured once in this section. After all, they did win their league (Horizon) last year and made a tournament appearance. If you have ever been on campus or to the nearby northern suburbs, you would see something quite different from what most expect from Detroit.
