The Final Week and Jockying For Position
The final week of conference play arrives with Wichita one victory away from winning the conference outright. They will travel to Illinois State, a tough team at home, in hopes of solidifying a title and bringing in back to Wichita for all to enjoy on Saturday when they host Drake and seek revenge for the 2OT loss suffered in Des Moines.

Most of the rest are fighting for position as just about everybody it seems could still play on Thursday. With the exception of Missouri State anyway. We'll get to the game matchups in another thread, but here is where the conference stands with 2 games remaining each.

Wichita State -- 14-2, 24-4
Creighton ------ 12-4, 23-5
Missouri State -- 9-7, 16-13
Illinois State ---- 8-8, 17-11
Drake ---------- 8-8, 15-13
Evansville ------ 8-8, 14-13
Northern Iowa -- 7-9, 17-12
Indiana State --- 7-9, 16-12
Southern Illinois - 5-11, 8-20
Bradley --------- 2-14, 7-22

I believe the tie breakers start with head to head. If there was a split, it then goes to out of conference strength of schedule and that's where a team like ISU can get sent to Thursday. Jank has refused to schedule up in his time in Normal. Two spots left for Thursday and five teams trying to avoid it. Could get interesting.
