For the first time since 2005-06, the Indiana State WBB program can call themselves Missouri Valley Conference regular season champions after a 85-72 road win vs. Northern Iowa on Sunday. The win also locks up the No. 1 seed in this week’s conference tournament.
ISU shot 54 percent from the field including 69 percent from behind the arc. That led to four Sycamores scoring in double figures led by Bilqis Abdul-Qaadir with 28 points and Chelsea Small chipped in with a career high 16 points. ISU will begin Missouri Valley Conference Tournament play on Friday when they play the winner of the Loyola/Bradley contest.
