It's hard to beat a team three times in a season. Wichita State made it look very easy.

Cleanthony Early and Ron Baker scored 17 points apiece in a 80-58 win over Evansville in the quarterfinals of the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament. 

They improved their win streak to 32-0, getting within two wins of the 34-0 set by UNLV in 1991.

Chadrack Lufile added 11 points and seven valuable rebounds to pull away in the second half.

Evansville's DJ Balentine paced all scorers with 31, combining for 61 points in two games in the MVC Tournament.

WSU will play the winner of the Missouri State/Illinois State game, Saturday at 1:30 pm.
