WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

No. 20 Wichita State is a perfect 18-0 in the American Athletic Conference with just two matches to go. They have already locked up the AAC title.

"We certainly proved to be the best team in the conference night in and night out, super consistent, all the volleyball metrics that you point to we were the best team and deserved it, so glad that we get to sit back and enjoy it a little bit longer," head coach Chris Lamb said.

That means they have also locked down an NCAA tournament bid and it's not even Thanksgiving yet. 

The team heads to Memphis on Wednesday to try to keep their momentum in their final road match of the regular season before they return home for their finale against the Tigers.

At noon on Friday they will try to cap off a perfect 20-0 conference record while celebrating the title. 

"After we won the title, Lambo came into our locker room and asked us how we were feeling and thought we'd be super excited -- which we were -- but we were all like, we really want to go undefeated that's our big goal," senior middle blocker Abbie Lehman said.

"That has been our goal since we started on this run, we realized we could do it and after we won conference last Sunday, we were like yeah this is great but we want to see that zero at the end," senior setter Emily Hiebert added.
