Evansville loses 80-58 to unbeaten Wichita State

ST. LOUIS (AP) Evansville got another big game from D.J. Balentine. It wasn't nearly enough for one of the youngest teams in the nation to stop unbeaten Wichita State.

"I think our guys learned a lot," coach Marty Simmons said after the Purple Aces lost contact early in an 80-58 loss to the second-ranked and top-seeded Shockers on Friday in the quarterfinals of the Missouri Valley Conference tournament. "How can you not?"

Simmons spent more time talking about Wichita State's 32-0 run than about his team's shortcomings. Evansville has two freshmen and three sophomores in the lineup and no seniors on the roster.
