The No. 1 seed Wichita State Shockers were upset on Saturday in the semifinals of the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament. The Redbirds of Illinois State pulled off the 65-64 upset at Arch Madness, sending the No. 14-ranked team in the country home early. The Shockers have already locked up an at-large berth, but Illinois State is still fighting for its tournament life and an automatic berth to the dance.

ISU pulled off the upset with their work on the defensive end, holding the Shockers to just 35 percent from the floor and forcing 14 turnovers. On the offensive end it was Tyler Brown, who went off for 25 points, including a pair of free-throws with seven seconds left that clinched the win. Along with Brown, Jackie Carmichael posted a double-double, working the paint to grab 11 boards and add 12 points.
The Shockers had a chance to win it but a Garrett Stutz shot at the buzzer was on line but short, hitting the front of the rim and sending Tim Jankovich's club through to the semifinals. Illinois State will now face the winner of the Evansville vs. Creighton game in tomorrow's MVC title game at 1:00 pm on CBS.
