MVC Tourney Results

From 1980-1996 ISU only won a single game in the MVC Tourney - Dave Shellhase's final season when he had already been let go I believe.

During Royce's 10 seasons, the Sycamores went 8-9 in the MVC Tourney in a league that was much deeper (but perhaps not really stronger at the top than the great WSU and Tulsa teams of the early 80's and then the short runs by Bradley, IlSU and SIU).

The cupboard is far from bare so let's hope that the record jumps well above .500 in the coming seasons.
