Wichita State Reportedly Voted into American Athletic Conference

Wichita State Reportedly Voted into American Athletic Conference

It will officially join the league on July 1.

AAC members are Houston, Memphis, Tulsa, Tulane, SMU, Temple, South Florida, Cincinnati, Connecticut, East Carolina, Central Florida and Navy.

The move to the AAC will allow Wichita State to receive a higher level of competition night in and night out, as the league sent Cincinnati and SMU to the NCAA Tournament this past season.

Wichita State will join the conference at the start of the 2017-18 season and participate in 15 different sports. It also assists any attempt to renegotiate its current TV contract (that runs through 2020) with ESPN. The Shockers, who have won 10 NCAA Tournament games over the past five years and have a 68-4 record in the MVC over the past four seasons, did what is in the best interest of the program moving forward.

Wichita State's men's basketball program has a storied history, winning more than 1,500 contests in its 111-year history. Cincinnati and Houston thought they were headed to the Big 12 a year ago, until the Big 12 made a decision to stay with 10 teams, an affront to mathematicians everywhere. "I think it'll be gut-wrenching for coaches", Marshall said. "We will not waver in our determination to put our student-athletes and teams in the best possible position to compete on the national stage". "The Valley has always been resilient and progressive in the face of these changes, and we have never been defined by a single institution".

Sanchez's agent holding talks with PSG about move
Talks over a new deal have been shelved and Arsene Wenger could be forced to cash in or risk losing him for nothing next summer. So I do not understand this kind of anxiety one-and-a-half-years before the end of contracts.

The Shockers also field teams in softball, men's cross country, golf, tennis and track and field in addition to women's basketball, cross country, golf, tennis, track and field as well as volleyball.

"This is as big a deal as we could possibly have had, and now is the time to focus on it", he said. By early March, evidence mounted, with no dissent, that the Shockers were on their way out of the Valley, their home since 1945. Loyola Athletic Director Steve Watson said Wichita State has a give-and-take relationship with the MVC - the conference brings as much to the Shockers as they bring to the MVC.

The move, which was voted on and passed unanimously by the league's board of directors, ends months of speculation about whether the league would add another member in order to create a balanced basketball schedule. They're also in the not-so-great TV market of Wichita, Kansas.

Memphis and CT, both coming off down seasons, must improve if the American is going to earn more NCAA Tournament spots and better seeds.

"There are a lot of other elements to this that are hugely important and reasons to celebrate this day maybe a little differently", Bardo said.
