No. 21 Wichita St tops Missouri St to reach MVC title game

ST. LOUIS (AP) Wichita State forward Shaquille Morris wants to cut down the nets at the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament.

He did everything in his power Saturday to get closer to that goal, scoring 16 of his game-high 21 points in the second half to power the 21st-ranked Shockers to a 78-63 semifinal victory over Missouri State.

"We always have a chip on our shoulder," said Morris, a redshirt junior. "For being the best team in the Valley, winning the Valley three years in a row, back-to-back-to-back, and then sharing it with Illinois State, we have a lot of doubters of us winning it. Now we just want to let the doubters down and just win it all."
