The hand-wringing over Wichita State as an at-large will be a moot point. I expect the Shockers to roll through Arch Madness.
I'm not saying they won't get in, but if they don't beat ISU in Arch Madness they'll be like a 10-12 seed instead of an 8 or 9.
if the NCAA fights March is On, why then does the Valley continue to use Arch Madness w/o issue?

It will be Arch Madness all over again in St. Louis for three teams in the NCAA men’s basketball tournament
The front of the T-shirt declared that Wichita State was the 2014 Arch Madness champion. The bracket on the back decreed that Indiana State had come out on top. It's always something, isn't it, and the 34-0 Shockers are more than able to laugh the gaffe off.
Congratulations to the 2014 Arch Madness Missouri Valley Conference Tournament champion Wichita State Shockers Defeating Indiana State 83-69, yet there still will be talkers Undefeated at 34-0 which some feel we must apologize for what they see as an easy schedule Anyone who has watched this team closely this year knows that their greatness does not depend on their unbeaten record, thus nonessential Great time for the Shox as for the first time ever in St. Louis, we cut down the nets Now on to a seed in the NCAA tournament next week, warm up the jets This team has tied the NCAA all time win streak of UNLV, clear as glass Ron Baker leads the fans in applause for Indiana State's Jake Odum as he leaves the court. . .such class With tears in my eyes, I watch our guys gracefully congratulate Indiana State To all Shockers from 1 to 110 we no longer have to wait An MVC Arch Madness title up until now has been beyond our reach Now on to the Big Dance with some opponents to teach What more can be said, yet more to ...
Woo heck yes! A huge congratulations to the Wichita State Shockers on winning the Missouri Valley Conference tournament championship known as Arch Madness! Shockers are 34-0 and will be the first team since the 1991 UNLV Runnin' Rebels to enter the NCAA tournament unbeaten! Great job Wichita State!
Indiana State hanging in there, only down 39-29. Could be a lot better for Sycamores though. Shockers surprisingly haven't won Arch Madness.
The Missouri Valley Conference Men's Basketball Tournament is under way in St. Louis and the Missouri State Bears are playing today in the Quarter Finals. It is Arch Madness. Go Bears!

Arch Madness: Gateway Returns To Truck Schedule in 2014 St. Louis-area Track, Eldora, Canada Road Course Highlight Next Season’s Slate DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Oct. 25, 2013) – NASCAR today announced the 2014 schedule for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, a slate that includes the return to racing at Gateway Motorsports Park for the first time since 2010. Gateway, a 1.25-mile oval in Madison, Ill., just outside of St. Louis, hosted truck series races from 1998-2010 with only one repeat winner in its 13-race history – Ted Musgrave, who won in 2001 and 2005. NASCAR Sprint Cup Series star Kevin Harvick won the most recent Gateway race, in July of 2010. Now independently owned by St. Louis-native Curtis Francois, a former racer with significant ties to the local community, Gateway will hold its 2014 race on June 14. “We’re excited to have the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series return to Gateway and to the St. Louis area, which is such a racing hotbed,” said Steve O’Donnell, NASCAR senior vice pr ...

Much like the rest of college basketball, there is not much parity between the top and the bottom of this league this year. The seed Southern Illinois won 6 conference games and the seed Creighton lost 5 conference games. So to assume that Arch Madness would be a messy affair would be a reasonable assumption.   Creighton and Wichita State are safe for the NCAA Tournament. There was a while earlier in the season where Indiana State could be legitimately described as in the tournament, but the wheels came off of that movement as Indiana State has lost too many games to inferior opponents at the end of the season. The only way another bid comes out of the Valley is if someone not named Creighton or Wichita State cuts down the nets in St. Louis on Sunday.   Arch Madness features four rounds, with two games in the first round to fill out the the simple 3 round, 8 team bracket that starts in the quaterfinals. The championship game will be played on Sunday on CBS.   First Round-Thursday, March 7 Southern Illi ...
March means March Madness! Take the train to the game. First it's Arch Madness - the Missouri Valley Conference Men's Basketball Championship on March 7-10 at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis. Then, make your way to Kansas City and the Sprint Center for the Big 12 Men's Basketball Championship March 13-16 and NCAA Men's Basketball tournament play on March 22 and 24.
Could make strong argument for 4. Wich. St., Creighton, Indiana St. at-large bids and another team wins Arch Madness
Late in the 2006-2007 season, with the Creighton Bluejays on the wrong side of the bubble for an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament, the Jays went to Normal and lost by 10 points to an Illinois State team that wouldn’t even make it out of its play-in game a few weeks later at Arch Madness.
