ST. LOUIS (AP) - Wichita State’s Gregg Marshall, whose team is the first to go unbeaten in the regular season in a decade, was a near unanimous choice as Missouri Valley Conference coach of the year for the third straight season.

The second-ranked Shockers are 31-0 entering the conference tournament this week.

Marshall is the second coach in conference history to win the award three straight seasons. Drake’s Maury John was honored from 1968-70.

Marshall received 39 of a possible 40 first-place votes from league coaches, media and sports information directors. Barry Hinson of Southern Illinois finished second in voting announced Thursday.

Wichita State has won a Valley-record 117 games the last four seasons.
