Sources: Missouri Valley Conference To Invite Valparaiso To Join
The Missouri Valley Conference last night unanimously voted to "formally invite" Valparaiso to join the conference, according to sources. Valpo, currently in the Horizon League, is "expected to accept the invitation and officially join the MVC on July 1." This comes "just over a month removed from Wichita State's departure" from league. Sources said that the MVC "intends to remain at 10 teams for the forseeable future." One source said that the "majority of league presidents were in favor of Valpo," but two "stumped hard for Murray State" (CBSSPORTS.com, 5/9).
