How impressive is Wichita State?
Wichita State just keeps piling up impressive numbers. First team with a 30-0 record in the regular season. First team with a 30-game win streak to start a season in 23 years. Fifth school in 40 years to win its first 30 games. Fifth team in college basketball history to go to the Final Four and then win 30 straight games the next season. And, of those previous four teams, all of them made it back to the Final Four, with two winning a national title. What does that all mean?
