[February 19, 2013]  ST. LOUIS -- Below is a statement from Missouri Valley Conference Commissioner Doug Elgin regarding Sunday night's Illinois State-Wichita State contest.

"The Missouri Valley Conference has disciplined the basketball game officials for their administration of awarded free throws in the final moments of the Wichita State Illinois State game on Sunday night at Redbird Arena in Normal, Illinois.

"Following a monitor review with :40 remaining, the officiating crew assessed a Flagrant 1 technical foul to Illinois State's Jackie Carmichael. The incorrect student-athlete from Wichita State shot the ensuing free throws.

"As with all officiating and personnel matters, discipline is being handled internally."
