The mens basketball team, which heads into Wednesdays game against Loyola with a 27-0 record, is on one of two regional Sports Illustrated covers this week, with the headline Go Ahead, Try to Jinx Us.
The photo of Cleanthony Early, Tekele Cotton, Fred VanVleet, Ron Baker and Chadrack Lufile was taken last week in Wichita. It accompanies a story by Thomas Lake. Dukes Jabari Parker is on the cover of the other regional edition.
The Shockers were on one of three regional covers in April, 2013 after they reached the Final Four.
In 2006, WSU was on a regional cover when the Shockers advanced to the NCAA Tournaments Sweet 16.
