The U.N.I. Panthers put the nations second longest winning streak and a number 20 national ranking on the line this evening with a visit to Wichita State. The Panthers are 7-0 in the Missouri Valley Conference and at 16-1 overall have won a school record 15 straight games.
U.N.I. coach Ben Jacobsen says it’s great for the program and something to be excited about, but he says it doesn’t help in the preparation or the way they play the game tonight. Jacobsen says the Panthers are keeping everything in perspective.
He says they practice hard and he says that’s the most important thing, is to work hard and play as well as they can. Wichita State is also having an outstanding season.
The Shockers are 5-2 in the Valley and 16-3 overall.
