GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Wichita State ended an 18-year absence from the NCAA tournament in style, as the Shockers outclassed Seton Hall, 86-66, yesterday at the Greensboro Coliseum. Seventh-seeded Wichita State never trailed, went ahead for good in the third minute, doubled the score late in the first half and never allowed the Pirates to get closer than 11 in the second. The Shockers got 23 points from sophomore guard Sean Ogirri and 15 points and seven rebounds from senior center Paul Miller.

The Missouri Valley Conference has five teams among the top 40 in Ken Pomeroy's online replica of the Rating Percentage Index. The Atlantic Coast Conference has four. Want to bet which one gets more teams in the NCAA tournament? The 10-team MVC won't make an appearance on ESPN or ESPN2 this month, but at least the NCAA pays attention. Last year the Missouri Valley had three NCAA teams in Creighton, Northern Iowa and Southern Illinois, and it's making a serious push for more this March.

It's just a few minutes among the hours of NCAA tournament-related programming on CBS, but funny how much weight Selection Sunday comments can carry - even through the first weekend of play. During a conference call this week featuring the network's lead announcing team of Jim Nantz and Billy Packer, much of the talk was about their reaction almost two weeks ago to the men's basketball field selected by the NCAA, in particular their questioning of four teams from the Missouri Valley Conference.

Saint Joseph's and Gonzaga have attracted a great deal of attention this season being among the nation's top ranked teams, but there's another mid-major conference school that could make its share of noise in next month's NCAA tournament. At 21-2, including 15-0 in the Missouri Valley Conference, Southern Illinois is one of the country's big surprises. The Salukis were picked to finish fifth in the conference after losing their coach and their two leading scorers. "Everybody had a chip on our shoulders," said junior guard Darren Brooks, the team's leading scorer this season.

If at-large teams from mid-major conferences thought they were overlooked in recent years by the NCAA tournament selection committee, they might feel totally ignored when bids are announced next month. Those who seemed invitation-worthy a month ago have put themselves in precarious positions. Take Kent State, a Cinderella team in last season's tournament that reached the Elite Eight before losing to Indiana. The Golden Flashes started this season 17-2 despite losing four of their top five scorers and coach Stan Heath to Arkansas, and were as high as 27th in the Rating Percentage Index (RPI)
