The Hawks didn't lose that year until the Atlantic 10 tournament.
Wichita State (13-0 Missouri Valley Conference) certainly had its hands full, especially with Southern Illinois guard Anthony Beane. He scored 25 points, getting to the rim at will until late in the game, when the Shockers finally started to double- and triple-team him.

Dwayne Polee II led San Diego State with 15 points, followed by Xavier Thames with 13.

Felix leads No. 19 Texas past Oklahoma State 87-68
AUSTIN, Texas -- Oklahoma State came to Texas on a four-game losing streak made worse by the suspension of star guard Marcus Smart.

Javan Felix scored 27 points, making six of Texas' 11 3-pointers, and the Longhorns rolled to an easy 87-68 win Tuesday behind a dominant first half.
Felix, who missed a game with a concussion a week ago and was just a 30 percent shooter from long range on the season, was 6 of 8 on 3-pointer and fell onepoint shy of his career high.
